How to make input text bigger in bootstrap css framework?

Tags: css,twitter-bootstrap,textbox

Problem :

I have a bootstrap textbox like this:

 <input type="text" class="span9" required name="input_text"/>

I want my input box to be of height 300px. For the width, span9 handles it. I used Inspect element in Chrome and overwrite the css like this:

input.span9, textarea.span9, .uneditable-input.span9 {
width: 852px;
height: 300px;

The text box looks good with the required height and width. But the problem is I can only type in the small portion in between the large text box. I want user to be able to type in the whole text box and even if textbox is not enough, I want to show the scrolling. How's that possible?

Solution :

Per my comment, it's a quick fix. Use a <textarea> instead of <input> and it will function the way you described.
