CONSTRUCTOR ^

new PARAMS

Constructs a new Rose::HTML::Form::Field::TextArea object based on PARAMS, where PARAMS are name/value pairs. Any object method is a valid parameter name.

OBJECT METHODS ^

contents [TEXT]

Get or set the contents of the text area. If a TEXT argument is present, it is passed to input_value() and the return value of that method call is then returned. Otherwise, output_value() is called with no arguments.

maxlength [INT]

Get or set the maximum length of the input value. Note that this is not an HTML attribute; this limit is enforced by the validate method, not by the web browser.

size [COLSxROWS]

Get or set the number of columns and rows (cols and rows) in the text area in the form of a string "COLSxROWS". For example, "40x3" means 40 columns and 3 rows. If the size argument is not in the correct format, a fatal error will occur.

value [TEXT]

Simply calls input_value, passing all arguments.
