I’m a new user to DASH , would like to update the mean of selected continent in the textarea space but not sure how to call dependencies for text_area .

Thanks in advance .

I believe that you want to update the value property of the text area component. Here are all of the properties of the Textarea component: https://dash.plot.ly/dash-core-components/textarea
