TextArea's overflow property has no effect

As described in https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/textarea/configuration/overflow, the TextArea widget supports customizing it's overflow behavior. However, setting this option to e.g. "scroll" has no effect as can be seen in this DOJO: https://dojo.telerik.com/etapAfaC.

If you check the applied styles in the browser's DEV-Tools, you can see that the internal class "k-input-inner" overrides the value set using the overflow option.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for taking the time to report this.

I confirm it is a bug and I have logged in it GitHub as well:


As a current workaround, I recommend setting the overflow property to 'auto'.

As a token of gratitude, I have added some Telerik points to your account.

As the documentation states, LESS-based themes only support the default option of the overflow property (https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/styles-and-layout/less-themes-migration). Maybe the DOJO-editor still uses LESS themes instead of SASS ones?
