I never know what people mean by 'textbox'. Do you mean <textarea> or a form <input>?

In css, use border-style .

Hi! Thanks for your reply.!

By textbox i mean the asp .net textbox which renders as an input field.

I have tried every type of border style and still cant cant seem to match IEs default. Ive been using a screen magnifier to look at the pixels and it is always different.

Which border style and color it should be?

Yes, asp.net stuff is Microsoft specific and won't mean anything to most of us.

There are many articles about styling forms. I'm getting ready to do such a page soon. I'm going to bed right now and, tomorrow, going out of town. You need to look into the border style properties for CSS but be careful of IE which tends to be inadequate in CSS.

Hi there, I have a text box which will receive its value from a pop-up date picker. The user should not be able to edit this field with the keyboard or mouse. I am using ASP.NET. If I set the readonly property of the textbox to true, it won't let the user change it and it can receive its value from the pop-op calendar, just what I need. Problem is, after a postback, value is lost. So I think Javascript may come to the rescue here. Is...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
