I am new to Ironspeed (9), so this may be a simple solution. I have a couple database fields that get bound, varchar (3000). They are automatically set to type asp:textbox.The textbox is a newer control with a toolbar so that the text entered can have styles and extended formatting. I don't want this behavior, I just want a simple multiline text box, as I only want the data stored in the backend database to be just the text entered and not all the style formatting around it.

Go to design mode.  Select the field.  Change the properties of "Editor Type" to "ASP Multi-Line".


You'll want to remove the Height and Width properties which were set when it was the other editor type so it will use the Columns and Rows properties.

In addition to Bryan's reply, you can go to Tools --> Application Generation Options --> General Application Options --> Web Page Options --> Rich Text Editor Control and make a change to Rich Text Editor to ASP Multiline.  After the next generation, this will replace all the Rich Text Controls to ASP Multiline.

Hi, I am new in Ironspeed Designer. I would like to ask how to change the behaviour of my text box so that it will not display numbers like -9.000089897658E-14 instead it will display 0 value. Thank you
