Hello Nehal,

i have solution for your problem i think it will help you.

First you have to create any  field of Text in your py file

comment = fields.Text(string="Comment")


and while using this field in your xml file you need to give width  for it.

i.e  

<field name="comment" style=' max-width: 1150px;  width: 500px'/>

so max width for your textarea is 1150 pixel and minimum width is 500 pixel

Hi,

Below code is useful to reduce text area

<fields name="notes" class="notes_width"/>

In your static/src/css/file.css

Add

.notes_width{
    height:100% !important;
    margin-left:10px !important;
    margin-top:10px !important;
}

Not worked for me. Have you checked?

Hi Nehal,

You can use size attribute to the fields.text to customize the size of your text area according to your need.

For Example:

'notes': fields.text('Notes', size=200, help='Add Notes'),

Let me know if you want something else.

Cheers

ASP:)

This will restrict the characters entered in Textarea. And I want to reduct textarea not the characters.
