class praw.models.TextArea(reddit: praw.Reddit, _data: Dict[str, Any])

Class to represent a text area widget.

Find a text area in a subreddit:

widgets = reddit.subreddit("test").widgets
text_area = None
for widget in widgets.sidebar:
    if isinstance(widget, praw.models.TextArea):
        text_area = widget
        break
print(text_area.text)

Create one:

widgets = reddit.subreddit("test").widgets
styles = {"backgroundColor": "#FFFF66", "headerColor": "#3333EE"}
text_area = widgets.mod.add_text_area("My cool title", "*Hello* **world**!", styles)

For more information on creation, see add_text_area().

Update one:

new_styles = {"backgroundColor": "#FFFFFF", "headerColor": "#FF9900"}
text_area = text_area.mod.update(shortName="My fav text", styles=new_styles)

Delete one:

text_area.mod.delete()

Typical Attributes

Note

This table describes attributes that typically belong to objects of this class. PRAW dynamically provides the attributes that Reddit returns via the API. Since those attributes are subject to change on Reddit’s end, PRAW makes no effort to document any new/removed/changed attributes, other than to instruct you on how to discover what is available. As a result, this table of attributes may not be complete. See Determine Available Attributes of an Object for detailed information.

If you would like to add an attribute to this table, feel free to open a pull request.
