What does the component do?

  • It is used for entering larger amounts of text in forms.

When should the component be used?

  • When longer entries are required from the user.

Rules

  • The text area always has a label.
  • Optional entries include the text ‘(optional)’ behind the label text. The text ‘(optional)’ can be abbreviated to ‘(opt.)’ for shorter fields.
  • An infoicon can be displayed in the entry field for detailed explanations. A tooltip opens if this infoicon is clicked on.
  • The width of the text area is always the same as the entire width of the form.
  • The basic height can be set when designing the form.
  • If the text is longer than the basic height of the text area, the text already entered shifts upwards. The text area maintains its original size.
