    I'm observing strange behavior with the RadTextBox Multiline in firefox for the 2009.3.1103 version of the controls...

    When typing into a multiline textbox, the textbox does not scroll as you type into the textbox.  The behavior does not happen in IE6,7,8, Safari, Opera or Chrome.

    In my case, I have a 5 row Multiline RadText Box.  You Can continue to type, you just can't see what you are typing.

    Anyone else see this happening?  This does NOT happen in the 2009.2.826 version of the controls.

    Thanks, Kuba

    EDIT:  FYI, the version of Firefox being used:  3.5.3

    Hello Kuba,

    Can you reproduce the issue you depicted for the multiline textbox on this online demo of RadInput? I tested it under IE 7/8 and FireFox 3.x locally and it worked as expected. I will also appreciate if you outline the differences between your configuration and this one - they can help us track down the cause of the abnormality to address it accordingly.

    Hi!

    I was having the same issue with RadTextBox Multiline in FF and found this post.
    After some tests I can say that the problem arises when the MaxLength property is used!

    My original textbox which was causing the problem Kuba described:
    <telerik:RadTextBox ID="RadTextBox1" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="5" Columns="5"  
                        TabIndex="4" MaxLength="500" Height="75px" Width="325px"
    </telerik:RadTextBox> 
    After I removed the MaxLength, it behaved fine!

    I confirmed this behaviour using the Billing Address radtextbox from the online demo provided by Sebastian in my web app.
    It was working correctly but, as soon as I added a MaxLength property, the scrolling didn't work anymore as supposed.

    As I really need to set the maximum number of input characters in a lot of multiline textboxes, it would be really "painfull" to implement some other logic (validators, javascript, serverside) all across my projects ;)

    Can you guys at Telerik investigate and provide a fix for this?
    Best regards,

    Ricardo.

    Ps: I just checked in IE8 and had no problems

    Hello Ricardo and Kuba,

    We are aware of the issue and I would like to inform you that our developers have already fixed it. This fix will be available in the next release of RadControls for ASP .NET AJAX.

    Thank you all for your responses, and indeed, the problem occurs because I have MaxLength set.  I can deal with it until SP1.

    I apologize to all... I fell off the edge of the earth, and it took me awhile to climb back up!!  :)
