Increasing the width of the rich (HTML) area


Q: How do I re-size the Rich(HTML)area in the detail view? It would be great if it could be large for easier editing.

Note: This tutorial applies to AppGini versions prior to 5.20. It's no longer applicable, nor needed as a fix, for AppGini 5.20 and higher.


A: Open the generated "tablename_dml.php" file in a text editor (where tablename is the name of the concerned table) and find this code:

<textarea name="FieldName"

(where FieldName above is the name of the concerned field). You should find the above code twice in the file. For each occurrence, edit the cols value that you'll find in the same line to increase the width of the HTML area, and/or edit the rows value to increase the height.
