We are thrilled to unveil the Syncfusion Blazor TextArea component, a standout feature of the Essential Studio 2024 Volume 2 release.

The Blazor TextArea component is meticulously crafted to revolutionize the multiline text input experience for developers and end-users.

In this blog, we’ll delve into its unique features and guide you on seamlessly incorporating it into your projects.

Blazor TextArea component: An overview

The TextArea component is a new addition to the suite of input controls available in our Blazor framework. It provides a user-friendly way to handle multiline text input and offers a range of features to improve usability and accessibility. This component is beneficial for scenarios where users must input large amounts of text, such as comments, descriptions, or messages.

Key features

The key features of the Blazor TextArea component are as follows:

Floating labels

Floating labels are a modern UI/UX feature that enhances the user experience by providing a clear and intuitive way to understand the input field’s purpose. When the user focuses on the TextArea or starts typing, the placeholder text transforms into a floating label above the field. This ensures the label is always visible, helping users remember their input.

Another standout feature of the Blazor TextArea component is its auto-resizing capability. It can be resized vertically, horizontally, or in both directions by selecting the corresponding ResizeMode option.

Rows and columns

You can specify the number of rows and columns, giving you precise control over the size of the text area. This is particularly useful for forms where you need to fit multiple input fields into a limited space. By defining the rows and columns, you can ensure that your text areas are appropriately sized for the content they are expected to hold.

Maximum length

Managing text input length is crucial in many apps. The Blazor TextArea component includes a built-in feature to set a maximum character limit. This feature helps you control the length of the input, ensuring users do not exceed the specified number of characters. It is useful for inputs like descriptions, comments, or any field where text length is restricted.


The Blazor TextArea component is designed with accessibility in mind. It supports ARIA attributes and keyboard navigation to ensure a smooth experience for all users, including those relying on assistive technologies.

How to use the Blazor TextArea component?

Getting started with the Blazor TextArea component is quick and easy. You can configure the component’s properties and customize its appearance and behavior according to your requirements. You can learn more about it, in this documentation.

Add the Blazor TextArea component to your app

Once you’ve installed the NuGet packages and configured the basic imports in your app, add the following code in the Blazor component (.razor) file to add the Blazor TextArea component.

<SfTextArea Placeholder="Enter your comments" @bind-Value="userInput" RowCount="5" ColumnCount="150" FloatLabelType="FloatLabelType.Auto"></SfTextArea>      
@code {
   private string userInput = string.Empty;
