Textareas allow users to enter text that’s longer than a single line.
Users can find open-ended questions difficult to answer. It might be better to break up one complex question into a series of simple ones.
If a limit on the number of words or characters a user can enter is
can be used. They provide feedback on how close the user is to the limit
and automatically show an error if it is exceeeded.
If the limit is much higher than most users are likely to reach, you can choose to only display the message after a user has entered a certain amount.
To do this, set the
threshold parameter in conjunction with a
word or character limit.
