Inserting ColdFusion text areas

Inserting ColdFusion text areas

You can visually insert a ColdFusion text area into your form and set its properties. A text area is an input element that consists of multiple lines of text.

This Dreamweaver enhancement is only available if you have access to a computer running ColdFusion MX 7 or later. For more information, see Enabling the ColdFusion enhancements.

To visually insert a ColdFusion text area:

  1. Place the insertion point inside the form outline.
  2. In the CFForm category of the Insert bar, click the CF Text Area icon.

    A text area appears in the ColdFusion form.

  3. In the Property inspector, set the text area properties.

    For more information, click the Help icon in the Property inspector.

  4. To label the text area, click beside it and enter text for the label.
