You can customize any input using the field parameter 'Css class'. You can add there any existing class name or create a new class that you can add to css file setting width, height or any other property.

Hope this helps. Regards,

but I don't find the right way. All attempted changes were unsuccessful. Please give me a hint in which file I should write what code to adjust the height of the textarea in the formview to 200px.

if I add a new data in the backend in a table the inputfield "textarea" is 300px high. The input field "text" is smaller.
When I go to a table to add new data in the frontend, the inputfields "textarea" and "text" are identical.

I want that in the frontend in the formview the inputfield "textarea" is shown higher than the inputfield "text".

Sorry, which style did you tried to set the property?. Something like this should do the work:


added to any css present at the page and selecting 'mytextarea' as css class for your field.

it's not quite what I mean, but I did it myself solved. With your solution, not only the input field in the modalbox is larger, also the corresponding column in the table.
I solved it with

#lm_wrapper .mytextarea{height:auto} in the lmbootstrap-default.css

The default value of the textarea is now much larger than in a normal text box, and the column in the Table Number is even as high as it should be.

Thanks and best regards
