Multiline TextBox

Hello Team;
This is a question;

I was just looking Blazor Docs and noticed they have several Input Tags that cover most cases. I then check Telerik list that I don't see the following in Telerik offering:
InputTextArea
InputSelect
InputCheckbox

I also checked the roadmap for next year and didn't see them either.

My question is, are plans to cover these any time soon? If yes, what's the approximate time-frame?

Secondly, for the time being, should we use the ones that come with Blazor?

Lastly, is there plan to have a mini editor like TinyMCE that we can let user to enter rich text stored in DB?

Thanks in advance!

..Ben

For me a Multiline=true/false would be good, including the default number of lines it will show. Probably obvious, but I'm expecting a vertical slider if the text is too big. For my current project the maximum lenght of text that was used is a little under 11000 characters.

Thanks, Coen.

Hello,

You can use a <textarea> HTML element too, and style it with our Themes: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/themes/form-elements#inputs.

Clicking the Follow button on this page is the best way to get status updates for the Telerik multiline textbox component. What I can say is that it is on our radar and it will be implemented.

Hi Marin,

when do you think be able to provide us a multiline TextBox (TextArea) ?

Using InputTextArea is a workaround but it doesn't run if there is no EditContext so ...

Hello Ben,

Please Follow the item for the HTML editor to get notifications for status updates. At this point, I cannot commit to a timeframe for it.

Hi Marin;

I was just providing a reference to the UI/UX for the editor to have something simple done in Blazor; For the technical part, I leave it to you guys.

Based on the specs I got for our project, we will need a more advance editor like a miniature MS Word to do more advance stuff by the end of 2020.
Is this something on your long term plan?

Thanks for the detail and speedy reply.
..Ben

Hello Ben,

Just to note, Quill is a JS editor, not purely blazor. It is also important to keep in mind that, according to MS, server-side blazor may have issues with things that have large contents (like HTML editors are wont to have) so it is possible that it may have to be done with JS. I am not saying it will, I am just noting behaviors of the framework, we will know more once we get to it.

Yes, HTML editor.
I just voted for that one.

Thanks!

I renamed this request to be for a multiline textbox and moved it under its category.

From what I see on the provided links, you seem to be lookging at HTML editors, so I suggest you Vote and Follow the relevant request linked in my previous post.

Good morning Marin;

>>Would you expect it as a separate component or as a parameter like Multiline=true on the current textbox?<<
A Multiline=true/false would be good enough.

>>For a checkbox, you can use our themes as well<<
That's good enough

>>Could you also clarify what you mean with "rich text"?<<
Just like this tiny rich text that I'm using to write this text with a bit of rich HTML capability to BOLD or bullets and something like https://quilljs.com/

We plan to have a simple Feedback section Just like yours in our Blazor app where when a user clicks a button to give us feedback on certain part of the app, we would know who the user is and which page, we just need them to give us text feedback.
Or during Chat session to write a multi line.

Thank you as always with great detail answer.
..Ben

Hi Ben, 

A textarea is, indeed, not available yet. Would you expect it as a separate component or as a parameter like Multiline=true on the current textbox? Also, does simply adding our styling to an HTML element serve your needs: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/themes/form-elements#inputs?

For a select element, we have the DropDownList and the ComboBox, with a MultiSelect coming up for R1 2020.

For a checkbox, you can use our themes as well, as there is little point in a dedicated component for this: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/themes/form-elements#checkboxes.

Could you also clarify what you mean with "rich text"? I am asking because there are two very distinct concepts - HTML editor and something like MS Word. Both have already been requested, so you can cast your Vote to increase their priority, and then to Follow them to get status change notifications:
