Editable textboxes



I'm trying to add an editable textbox to my shiny app, the text box I need should be editable and deletable


ui <- shinyUI(fluidPage(


actionButton("add_btn", "Add Textbox"),
actionButton("rm_btn", "Remove Textbox")




server <- shinyServer(function(input, output, session) {

Track the number of input boxes to render

counter <- reactiveValues(n = 0)

observeEvent(input$add_btn, {counter$n <- counter$n + 1})
observeEvent(input$rm_btn, {
if (counter$n > 0) counter$n <- counter$n - 1

textboxes <- reactive({

n <- counter$n

if (n > 0) {
  lapply(seq_len(n), function(i) {
    textInput(inputId = paste0("textin", i),
              label = paste0("Textbox", i), value = "Hello World!")


output$textbox_ui <- renderUI({ textboxes() })


shinyApp(ui, server)

I came across the above code but I need to have a flexible box as in the below code

ui <- fluidPage(

textarea(id = "response2",
class = "form-control shiny-bound-input",
style = "width: 300px; height: 34px")


server<-function(input, output, session) {
output$out <- renderText({

shinyApp(ui = ui, server = server)

Also would it be possible to lock in the text with a save button and an edit button to change it later on ?
