I’m working on a native mobile app and would like to add a type of chat functionality.
Currently, it does not seem possible to have an automatically growing in size text area for native applications using base mendix. Even when the field empty, the ‘Text area’ widget is fixed to x lines. The “grow automatically” option is available for web apps, but not native ones.
Ideally we would show an (empty) single line input field at the bottom of the page which can grow to accommodate the user’s input (up to a max of ~5 lines) after which the field can be navigated by the user using a vertical scroll bar.
