I would like to make one textbox to change its size when the neighbouring textbox changes its size. I have a situation where one textbox grows vertically in size because of its input, and the textbox next to it (which represents a label) stays the same.

Hi Ivo,

I can recommend you to use a Table item where the two field can be placed in two neighbouring columns. When one cell grows vertically the whole row will grow. 

Another solution would be to reset the bottom borders of the textBoxes and set the border of the parent section or parent container item instead.

I hope the provided information would help you.

Hi Katia,

thank you for the answers, gives me a better idea on solution. Still have few more questions, for the first solution you recommended, making a table items, it means I would have to make a table and in that table my textboxes would represent table items? And for the second solution, which I find more appealing, how exactly would I reset borders of one textbox regarding to a border of a neighbouring textbox?

Once more, thanks for the answer.

Hi Ivo,

First solution: a Table item is a single item and you can display data fields in the cells of this item.

Second solution: to reset the border of the TextBox set its Style.BorderStyle property to None. You can use borders of the container section or container item instead.
