Textarea adds styling, key filtering and autoResize functionality to standard textarea element.

import Textarea from 'primevue/textarea';

A model can be bound using the standard v-model directive.

<Textarea v-model="value" rows="5" cols="30" />

When autoResize is enabled, textarea grows instead of displaying a scrollbar.

<Textarea v-model="value" autoResize rows="5" cols="30" />

A floating label appears on top of the input field when focused.

<span class="p-float-label">
    <Textarea v-model="value" rows="5" cols="30" />

Invalid state style is added using the p-invalid class to indicate a failed validation.

<Textarea v-model="value" rows="5" cols="30" />

When disabled is present, the element cannot be edited and focused.

<Textarea v-model="value" rows="5" cols="30" disabled />
