    Default How can I change the text size in a textarea box

    I have a web site with a form that needs to be able to print the page (for a hard copy) before sending the form. That I know how to do... but I would like to make the TYPED text to be larger than the normal (10pt?) How can I force the text boxes to make the text larger.

    Thank you,

    Hi,

    This is really an HTML questions, not something to do with FormMail.

    You should look into CSS for this.

    CSS has a concept of a media type, so you can specify different style attributes depending on where the HTML is to be output (display, printer, etc.)

    If you need assistance with this, please contact me by email or Private Message if you'd like to use our consultancy services.

    Thumbs up Re: How can I change the text size in a textarea box

    Russell,

    YES, seems I tend to jump before looking... my bad

    I have the form all set using Style within the Input tags
    to set the font size to a larger size than normal.

    For others who would like to know how, just add the following
    to your Input tag(s) when you want to force a special style
    to the typed info on a form

    style="font-family: Arial;font-size: 12pt;"

    Here is what a full Input tag would look like
    <input type="text" size="50" name="Address" maxlength="50"
    style="font-family: Arial;font-size: 12pt;">

    To see the page that I used this on go to
    http://www.marchgettogether.com/2012...tion_form.html

    NOTE: You will notice this page does NOT have a SEND button
    because it was created for the web site owner who wanted
    to have a Printed Hard Copy sent to him via normal mail.
    Keeping the full form page design and getting nicely TYPED text
    on a hard copy that was printed after being filled out on the page.

    Hope this helps others who think out side the box in web design

    PS I was about to post my reply here when I received a quick reply
    from Russell with the short (but 100% true) answer on my question.

    THANK You Russell !!!
