    Hi garfchong,

    According to your description, I have created a test demo, it works well.

    Could you please tell how you  adjust the width & length of the textbox?

    Below is my test demo:


    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
                <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Height="155px" Width="245px"></asp:TextBox>


    Best Regards,

    Hi garfchong,

    Could you please share your application for us to reproduce your issue?

    If possible, I suggest you could upload the project to the onedrive or github.
