i have to increase the width and height of the Rich Text area field in Visualforce page. I have tried the following:

Method 01:

<apex:pageBlockSection title="Notes" columns="4">
                    <apex:outputLabel value="Special notes" for="tts_notes"/>
                    <apex:inputTextarea id="tts_notes" value="{!Territory__c.Special_notes__c}" cols="50" rows="30" richText="true"/><p/>

Method 02:

 <apex:pageBlockSection title="Notes" columns="4">
        <apex:inputField value="{!Territory__c.Special_notes__c}" style="width: 1000px; height: 700px;"/>

I have tried with Cols & rows attribute also but there is no change.

Can you guys help me?


In your code instead of columns= "4" use "1" then no need to apply styles also

Well its in the salesforce doc! Have a look here http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/pages/Content/pages_compref_inputTextarea.htm

According to the doc

"rows" : "Integer" : The height of the text area, as expressed by the number of rows that can display at a time.

"cols": "Integer" : The width of the field, as expressed by the number of characters that can display in a single row at a time.

And additionally make sure there is enough room for it to expand. So when you are marking pageBlocksection as columns="4" you are essentially dividing it into 4 parts and each component you add there takes a part of it.
