Thanks for any
When you type it looks like this :
What I want to it look like is this:
Try ticking the option for Show Scrollbar under the Properties tab when you select the TEB on screen.
Part of my blog about TEB's:
Often overlooked by developers: it is possible to have text wrapping in a TEB. You just have to activate the option 'Show Scrollbar' which is disabled by default:
The text is now wrapping over onto the next line - thank you Rod and Llybirl
However, I don't wish the Scrollbar to be visible as follows:
I still want the text to wrap but is there any way of hiding the Scrollbar please?
Question to both Rod and Llybirl please.
No, I'm sorry. If the TEB is not validated, yoyu could use the Scrolling Text interaction as alternative, but setting it up needs bit more work since you have to define a user variable, you don't have a pausing point etc.
When the number of characters in the TEB is reached, the slide moves onto the next slide automatically. I suppose that means there is no validation of the TEB required? If so, that means I could use Scrolling Text interaction as alternative? Are there instructions anywhere for this please?
If you set a given number of characters as the maximum, then the Auto Submit option becomes available. If that option is selected, then entering the maximum number of characters in the TEB triggers the On Success action, which is defaulted usually to Continue or Jump to Next Slide.
That appears to be happening in your case. The entered text will be stored in the TEB's associated variable and could be displayed somewhere else if needed, but you only get validation of the entered text if you turn on the Validation option.
The scrolling text interaction doesn't have the option to validate text (as Lieve pointed out) but since that text can also get stored in a user variable, you could potentially validate it using a Conditional Advanced Action. However, this becomes somewhat impractical if users are entering a sentence or something similar as there are just too many possible ways they could write it. Validation tends to be very 'black and white' with no room for variation.
