<textarea> with auto new line display

I'm creating an aspx page with a textarea and a button.

The textarea is created like this:


<textarea id="text_area" cols="30" rows="3" runat="server"/>


If the text is more than 30 character length the text will scroll but remain in one row and the user can't see all the text he has typed.

I would like the text will display automatically in new line when characters are more than the cols of the textarea.

In IE all works great but in BB Browser the textarea works differently.

Thanks for help

Re: <textarea> with auto new line display

This is an issue with the BlackBerry Browser in BlackBerry handheld software version 4.6.0, 4.6.1 and 4.7.0.  It did work correctly in version 4.5.0 and lower and has been fixed in BlackBerry handheld software version 5.0.
