    In my form i inserted a matrix and used "Textfield".

    I already found the CSS codes to change height and width of the textboxes, but when is start typing in my information the text doest not break off at the end of the textbox to go to the next rule but i just keep on typing without even having a view of what i just typed in there.

    Is there anyone who can help? What CSS can i inserted to make the text in each of the texboxes in the matrix to carry on at the next line in the same textbox?

    I'm afraid there's a confusion on how textboxes work. A Textbox will always have a single line presentation. If you need an element that provides multi line input, you need to use a Textarea.

    Sadly, the Input Table field doesn't have an option to add Textareas in it. Perhaps you should approach this from a different angle. Does it have to be presented as a table? Can you not use actual Textarea (Long Text Entry) fields instead?

    This should meet your requirements right off the bat - The only difference is that you won't be presenting it as a table. Alternatively, you can try using the Configurable List Widget as this widget offers a textare option.

    BTW, I may have accidentally sent a test submission on your form, please ignore it.
