Form Services / InfoPath 2010 Bug found in Multi-line Plain Text boxes
Just a quick blog to let users know of an issue I have found during my current project involving InfoPath Form Services (This only occurs in the web and not in the client). I have logged this with Microsoft and am awaiting response / resolution.
I will update this post when I have closure of the issue.
An InfoPath Form created in Microsoft InfoPath Designer 2010 and is installed as an Administrator approved template.
- Form Control: Text Box
- Read-only – No
- Enable spelling checker – Yes
- Enable AutoComplete – Yes
- Multi-line – Yes
- Height: Auto
- Form Type: Web Browser Form (2010)
- Browser: Internet Explorer 7, 8, Google Chrome
When running the Form in the web and a user types into the multi-line text box; after 20 characters the text box gets bigger by 1 row.
123456789012345678901 – Textarea row = 1
- Image Before:
1234567890123456789012 – Textarea row = 2
- Image After:
This is regardless of the width of the Text Box (Multi-line) control on the InfoPath form.
- Browser: Firefox 3.6.10
A different issue occurs on the same control in the same scenario within Firefox.
