  • What exactly do you mean by a text area?  What behavior are you looking for and which framework are you using to write your Metro style app?  Each has a way to deal with text, although it's different in each one. 

    It would help if you could give more details about what you are looking for and post in the appropriate forum for how you are writing your application (Building Metro style apps with C#/VB, Building Metro style apps with HTML/JavaScript, Building Metro style apps with C++).

    For the XAML based frameworks, look at Windows::UI::Xaml::Controls::TextBlock or Windows::UI::Xaml::Controls::TextBox.

    Metro style apps in HTML have <textarea> and <input> elements.

  • Hi,

    This is not a Silverlight forum.  You should post your question in that forum if you have a Silverlight question.  This is a forum for Metro Style application development.
