jQWidgets jqxTextArea source Property

  • Last Updated : 25 Aug, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxTextArea represents a jQuery Textarea widget that is used to insert text content inside the textbox.

The source property is used to set the widget’s data source. The ‘source’ function takes two arguments, the textarea’s value, and a callback function. It accepts array or function type value and its default value is [].

Syntax:

$('selector').jqxTextArea({ source: sourceFile });
