Hi All,

I have a textarea and i need to add a popup to it to view all the content of textarea at one glance.
The main issue is that I want to add an editable popup to it and want the data in the textarea to change accordingly.
Can anyone of you help me in this? I am a GreenHorn in Struts.
Can we do this using Javascript? Please provide your reply to it.

Here is my code

Thanks and Regards,

Can you explain more clearly what you want. What do you mean by pop up with editable text and all thext visible at one glance.

If you only have problem with increasing the height of the text area, then you can use plain javascript DOM manipulation to do that...

Actually, the text in the textarea will be quite much as this will be coming under comments section in my application. It will bew hard for the user th read it all at one glance. Hence I want to display all that text in a tootip or a popup window and allow the user to change the text in the pop up itself, if he wants to do so.
