I want my textarea box to not to have scrollbars. So depends on how long the message is, it will determine the rows. How would I do that, count the character in $message?

<textarea value="<?php echo $message; ?>" rows="<?php ?>" cols="20">

dont think this is the best way but you could do:

$msg=explode("\n",$message");
$lines=count($msg);

and the user rows="<?php echo $lines; ?>"

as far as i can think that should work but only work by line not for long lines which will then be wrapped..

Whats the point of using a textarea if you don't want to conserve space and use scrollbars? Doesn't make much sense..
