Text Area Editable Settings for Size to Content



User has configured a repeating grid with a text area and button column. As per the requirement, text area should be expandable and show whole text entered by the user on it, hence only have selected "Set to Content" option for the text area with Collapsible as - "Yes, Default Expandable".

When user enters large content in text area and on clicking on the button which opens up a modal dialog and on submit on the screen,  the screen refreshes and displays the text area expandable but with only first line of contents but not complete contents even though it is expanded
