f:form.textarea

This ViewHelper allows you to add a TEXTAREA (text input field) to an HTML form, which allows a website visitor to enter text on multiple lines. For example, this type of field is usually seen in a contact form, where the website visitor can enter the text of his or her message. The value of the text area needs to be set via the "value" attribute, as with all other form ViewHelpers.
