Need Help With Scrolling Textbox (overflow)

I need a script where my textbox can have a transparent background and no borders around it. Every script I try the box has borders even when I say no borders. I need to also be able to have hyperlinks within the text that is within the textbox. Can anyone PLEASE help me with this?

Thanks!

First of all, this is not a scripting forum so, if you mean some programming language like javascript, you should ask on that board.

Second, there is no such thing, in html, as a "text box" so you have to be more specific as to what you exactly mean.

Third, if you don't show us what the problem is, we can't help you with the problem. Show the markup or a link!

Excuse me, I thought this was a forum I could receive help from, not criticism.

Ok so are you wanting a box that contains links, text, and other contents, that has no borders?

Or do you want an actual "textbox" that is to say: a box where text can be entered by the user? You can do that with the textarea element, but you can't put links inside of a textarea ( to my knowledge ), do to the fact of any thing you type inside of the textarea ( in your source code that is ) is displayed in side of the textarea in your browser.

Thanks, Death

PS - we aren't allowed to just give you the answer, but we can point you in the right direction, also try to be as specific as possible about what you're needing.

First of all, I agree this isn't a scripting forum, but his 2 posts makes it obvious that he may not have known that ( we both know that well over half the users don't read the posting guidelines ).

Second, In essence yes there is a "text box", it's called textarea, it's a box and you can put text in it, hence the word "text box". ( also note the lack of discription, and use of proper HTML terms in his question, which made it some what obvious he doesn't know much about HTML).

Third, he did show us the problem, and that was: he didn't know how to do it ( that's why he asked us). So we can help him by pointing him in the right direction.


No offence, Death

Yes this is a forum for "help", but he was simply pointing out some errors in your question. ( please read the posting guidelines ) Remeber your reading text, and not talking face to face, so remeber that we are trying to help you, even if our post sound a little harsh. That's simply because you can't see our emotions ( which I asure you, we are all jumping for joy 24-7! ), and when it comes to drhowarddrfine the type of criticism he gives is a very good kind, it's allways helpfull usefull advice, which has brought him much respect on these forums. So if some one is telling you what you did wrong it's to help you not insult you.

Thanks, Death

The only problem with that is many asp.net people have a control called 'text box' which creates an <input> form field for entering text. I would prefer to call it a 'field' and people I know do. I don't think she means <textarea>.

Joy,
Many times answers get posted here 'on the fly' during work. I am working on a huge project that takes me out of town frequently, for example. My answers can be friendly but, right now, tend to be quick, direct and to the point. The other option is no response at all (at least from me).

I understand your point completly, that's why I said "in essence" I also did not think that she wanted a textarea, but I was simply pointing that out do to the way she worded her question.

My best guess is that you need a text box, like <input type="text">.

That will get you a text box that allows the user to type into, you can set a default value so it says something. The way to get rid of the borders is with CSS.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <html>
  2. <head>
  3. <title>textbox</title>
  4. <style type="text/css">
  5.  
  6. #mytextBox
  7.     {
  8.     border:none;
  9.     }
  10. </style>
  11.  
  12. </head>
  13.  
  14. <body bgcolor="#CDCDCD" text="#FF0000">
  15.  
  16. <label>Text</label> <input type="text" id="mytextBox" value="Enter some 
  17. text">
  18.  
  19. </body>
  20. </html>
  21.  
The CSS removes the borders from the text box. As for hyperlinks, I'm not sure about that with the '<input value="">' tag.

Hope that helped?
