Lightning:datatable - How to extend the inline edit input for multiple lines using CSS


I have created a lightning:datatable that uses the inline edit functionality.

For long text area fields, is it possible to edit the css to allow text on multiple lines?

I am not sure how easy it is to do it and In lightning:datatable there is no attribute to set text wrapping styles or etc and more over you are trying to do based on text contact .. 

can you try to use the css to increase the width and use ! importance event where?
table {
            border: thin solid black;
            width: auto;
            height: auto;

I dnt think so you can able to do it .. create your own custom table in that case
