    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Text Area component is a popular text input element. It is best used for text of average length, such as item descriptions and user comments.

  • Text Area Component Theming

    The Telerik ASP.NET MVC Text Area component has several built-in themes such as Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines), Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better) and Fluent (based on Microsoft Fluent UI). You can easily customize any of out-of-the-box themes with a few lines of CSS, or create new theme to match your colors and branding by using the Telerik SASS ThemeBuilder application.

  • RTL Support

    Right-to-left support is available for languages like Hebrew & Arabic, in which users read from right to left. You can satisfy any cultural preference with the TextArea by toggling between left-to-right and right-to-left alignment with only a few settings.
