Controlling size of TextArea with CloudDeploy FormFunction

CloudDeploy[
FormFunction[
"names" ->
RepeatingElement[
CompoundElement[<|"first" -> "String", "last" -> "TextArea"|>]]]]


I am using code like the above to create a web form but the TextArea is too small (both width and height). Is there any way to specify the width and height of a TextArea?

• FormLayoutFunction may not work with a repeating compound element, but does it even do what you want for just FormFunction[{"first" -> "String", "last" -> "TextArea"}]? – Christopher Haydock May 19 '16 at 3:00
• I am not sure if it can be used for this. I have not found any examples or options modifying width and height directly. I did try to set "ItemLayout"->"Vertical" to make the TextArea wider. This did not work with RepeatingElement + CompoundElement. – sorenba May 19 '16 at 8:45
• You can examine the page source generated by the Wolfram Development Platform and in principle you could revise this to get exactly the form layout that you desire. – Christopher Haydock May 19 '16 at 14:08
