Problem in Displaying Textarea

Hi everybody !

I’m newbie to rails. I have a problem to display the Textarea.

As I got some value from mysql database and load this value in a text
area.
By defualt the scroll bar for the text area is at the top like in
browsers. But I want the scroll bar of the text area at the bottom like
in yahoo & gmail chats ( I mean I want to see the last line of the
textarea at first. If want to see the first line, then I have to scroll
to the top.)

Is it possible. The code I used for the textarea as follows.

<% @message.each do |ms| %>

   <%= ms.content -%>

<%end%>

Where @message = Message.find(:all)

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Veeraa.

Hi!
Just googled and found this on another discussion forum,
nameofyourtextarea.scrollTop = nameofyourtextarea.scrollHeight;
Hope this helps,

Thanks and regards,

Hi swanand !

I used like this both as follows

and

<% language=“javascript”> ch1.scrollTop = ch1.scrollHeight; %>

in my .rhtml file . But doesn’t work. Any other suggestion.

Hi!
Can you please check if you are getting any JS error? Since according
to
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/DOM:element.scrollTop
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/DOM:element.scrollHeight
the
current code should work
Thanks and regards,
Swanand.
