Type: Feature Request



We are using Kendo chat component in our application.

We have a request to make something like textarea instead of text input field, or something similar with the multiline input.


Is that possible with current implementation or do you plan to support it in the near future?


Thansk in advance!

Hi Milan,

I am afraid that wrapping the text inside an input doesn't seem to be possible. I understand that this may be disappointing, but the desired behavior cannot be achieved with the currently rendered DOM of the Conversational UI component. The input element should be replaced with a textarea in order to allow wrapping its value on multiple lines.

Please check the following article extracted from StackOverflow for some more details on this limitation:


We are aware of this limitation and thus we are currently considering our options for providing a template for the ConversationalUI that will allow us to use a textarea or any other custom content for the input. Please support the following feature request from our public FeedbackPortal on this topic by voting:


That will help us to track the customer demand for such functionality and we will eventually add the feature to our future development plans.
