Text Area Input

Transform a Figma text layer into a text area input field. Any text layer in Figma can serve as the basis for a Text Area Input block. The text contained in the Figma layer will serve as the field’s placeholder. The size of the text box will determine the size of the text area.

Input Ports

Trigger [ trigger, optional ]
By default the Text Area Input block will generate a textual value as output for each detected keystroke (i.e. as soon as the user types something). If the optional Trigger port is connected the block will only generate output when a trigger is received (e.g. from a button click).

Output Ports

Text [ text ]
Contains the text typed into the text area input field.

Effect Ports

Default [ text, optional ]
Allows you to set the default value of the input field.
