[ThemeableAttribute(false)]
public virtual int Rows { get; set; }
<asp:TextBox Rows="Int32" />

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of rows in a multiline text box. The default is 0, which displays a two-line text box.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The selected value is less than 0.

Use the Rows property to specify the number of rows displayed in a multiline text box.

NoteNote:

This property is applicable only when the TextMode property is set to TextBoxMode.MultiLine.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins Overview.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Rows property to specify a height of 5 rows for a multiline TextBox control.

Security noteSecurity Note:

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
