Scrollbar missing in multiline textbox - outlook 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a form that contains a multiline textbox and other single line textboxes all contained in a table structure.

    Its a browser enabled form that emails its content (via "Send active view of the form") when submitted.

    When testing the email submission, we noticed that in Outlook 2003 the vertical scrollbars in the multiline textbox appear. However, in Outlook 2007 the scrollbars do not appear and hence part of text is not shown.


    Is there any way to overcome this? Is this a known issue with outlook 2007 & InfoPath?

  • Hi shehan,

    Microsoft went from using IE's html rendering engine for Outlook 2003 to using Word's html rendering engine in Outlook 2007.  Because of this change the controls rendered within the email message do not behave the same way as they would in Outlook 2003.  The only option you really have is to increase the height of the multiline text controls to account for the amount of text that would be put.
