A read-only multi-line text catalog item variable, viewed in the catalog and populated by a catalog client script, does not resize the text area to fit the value. Since Fuji, there is no longer a manual way to expand the text area.

This is browser-specific: Firefox 38.0.5 works. Chrome 43.0.2357.130 or IE11 does not work.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a multi-line text variable and a catalog UI policy to make it read only onLoad. 
  2. Add a reference variable to sys_user and onChange catalog client script on the other variable to set a long-text value in the multi-line text variable.
  3. Open the catalog item that contains both variables created above.
  4. Change the value in the reference variable so the catalog client script gets triggered.
  5. Notice that the multi-line text variable does not resize.




The issue is solved in Geneva. As a workaround, resizing the browser forces the variable also to be resized.
