No, as far as I know it isn't. And please, do me a favour and remember
that form elements are not concieved to perform navigation.

what i need is a scrolled window that contains, say 1000 links (URL's). i
want it managed on the window so that user can
scroll the listbox rather than the entire page ?

if i place 1000 links one on each line and the user scrolls down, he will
loose the context on the top of the pate

thanks
Mel

I did something like this recently, our uses are different though.

Set the action of the form to a server page that reads the rolldown and
redirect to that page. This would be 5 very short lines of perl.

It seems that you, just like most top-posters, never bothered to read and
understand the answer. That answer had one way to do what you liked, and
also raised the question if it is sencible aproach.

You are most likely solving wrong problem. Your problem is that you have
1000 links without structure. Putting them in a list box usually doesn't
make sence. Overly long listbox is hard to use. Scrollbar on whole page
is easy, scrollbar on part of page is hard.
