scrollbar for text fields

Hi folks


Is there a way where I can add a scroll bar to a text field in SFDC ? If not .. I believe I can do this using VF ? Can someone please share the syntax for this ?




You can not add scroll bar to text field, however you can use text area that has scroll bar functionality default. For that create a field (type=textArea) and define no. of lines are visible and if your text extend these defined no. of lines, scroll bar will automatically visible.


The other workaround is to use use inline style="overflow:scroll;height:250px;" in textfield.


Hope this helps.
