Sets the wrap style (soft, hard, or off) for a text element.

Applies to dom/HTMLElement
## Examples

This example dynamically sets the wrap property of a textArea to the value selected by the user.

function ChangeWrap(oSelect, oTA)
    cValue = oSelect.options(oSelect.selectedIndex).value;
    oTA.wrap = cValue;
<select id=cboWrap onchange="ChangeWrap(this, txt1)">
<option value=soft>soft
<option value=hard>hard
<option value=off>off
<textarea id=txt1 style="height:200;width:200"></textarea>

View live example



To detect the difference between soft and hard you must submit the content within the textArea to an HTTP server.
