I have some fairly lengthy text that I want to display. I'm putting a textArea on the screen. But I don't understand its behaviour.
I've played with the height, width, left, right, top, bottom etc properties. No matter how I set it up, it doesn't create the area the way I'd like it to look.
Based on the parameters I give it creates a square on the screen. within that square is a second square at the top left, tall enough to display 2 lines text.
The width of this inner square seems to stay the same no matter how wide I make the textArea. On the right side of the inner square is a scroll bar.
How do I make this inner box as tall and wide as the outer box?
Is there a better widget than the textArea for displaying large blocks of text?
