Add Text Area to Automatic Generation of fields - Use DataType annotations to render different editors

Telerik TextBox for string is nice but what about something like [DataType(DataType.MultilineText)] for TextArea?

Forms should really come with Text Area.  It seems like a good one to do next.

An idea is that perhaps other data type annotations could be used - perhaps Date, DateTime, TIme can switch different date/time pickers, Html can generate the HTML editor, Password can set a textbox with the Password type

Hi Aaron,

I took a closer peek at this compared to during the live stream and I added a small edit on your post - I think there are a few possible values we can use from those DataType annotations, not just the multiline text. Let's see how the community feels about that and whether it becomes popular.
