React TextArea

Overview

Part of the KendoReact form components, the React TextArea component is suitable for any scenario that requires multiple lines of text or values to be entered in a form field. Thanks to the various KendoReact themes, the TextArea (also known as Multi-line TextBox) component fits naturally into any design language and you can adjust its look and feel based on custom UX requirements.

React TextArea Component Overview

Disabled TextArea

For scenarios that require the React TextArea to prevent user interactions until certain criteria are met, the KendoReact TextArea component can switch between being enabled (fully operational) or disabled (prevent user interactions) through a single configuration option. The disabled state also automatically updates the appearance of the React TextArea component to ensure there is a clear visual cue that the UI element is disabled.

Controlled Mode

The KendoReact TextArea component can operate under both uncontrolled and controlled modes. This gives React developers the flexibility to handle the state of the React TextArea component in whichever approach they prefer.

See React TextArea Controlled Mode demo

Sizing

The dimensions of the React TextArea component can be defined in multiple ways. This includes setting the initial height of the TextArea component and controlling if the component should automatically resize based on the content entered by the user.
