I am creating a a publishing Html field using below xml. When I retrieve the field after creation also no of lines field is set to 6. But when the field is rendered in new form it has only one line and not six. Is NumLines value is not considered for publish html field?

<Field ID="7aeaf4de-3cb3-48c6-8586-4106290fa12d" DisplayName="FieldDisplayName" Name="FieldName" Group="Group1" Type="HTML" Description="" NumLines="6" RichText="TRUE" RichTextMode="FullHtml"></Field>
  • You can use the UnlimitedLengthInDocumentLibrary ="TRUE" attribute. AFAIK, NumLines will only work on Note Field. Sep 12, 2017 at 10:26
  • Will UnlimitedLengthInDocumentLibrary ="TRUE" will increase the height of the rendered field? Also I'm working with a list, not a library.
