How to limit Text Area size in a custom Screen?

Hi

I am working on a simple custom Screen with a Text Area element in it, but I cannot get the Text Area to display in a reasonable size. Meaning, the Text Area field takes up the entire Screen and then some. I am also not able to display the label.

I see that there are configuration values called "cols", "rows" and "label" which I thought I could set in the "Simple values" tab like in the picture below, but that does not seem to do anything.

 

I also tried fiddling in the Creation script tab and configuring it there the same way I have successfully configured Button elements, but I could not figure that out either. Any help is appreciated!

Hello Espen,

What is your complete screen structure like? If you put the text area in a element table it should properly size (based on the enclosing element table ofcourse)

Ah! That was the issue indeed, I simply forgot that I had to put it inside an element table... Thanks!
