Readonly textbox with scroll

Hello,
I am stuck with a problem trying to mimic the behavior of a Windows
Forms Readonly textbox in HMTL/ASP.NET.

Basically, I would like the text to be readonly and overflow the
textbox (overflow attribute) with the user being able to scroll thru
the text using the arrow keys within the textbox.

I managed to get the readonly and the overflow part to work but cannot
figure out a way to let the user place the cursor within the box and
allow scrolling within a readonly textbox.

Any help would be very appreciated....

Thanks
Kannan

Hi,

I think old good html will fit your needs:

<div
style="height:4 0px; width:40px; overflow-y:scroll; display:block;
border: 1px solid black">
aaaaa
bbbbb
ccccc
ddddd
eeeee
fffff
ggggg
</div>

Click inside and scroll with arrows...

This works in my IE 6, Netscape 7.2, Firefox 1.0.3:

textarea{
border: 2px solid brown;
width: 300px;
height: 200px;
}

<body>
<textarea readonly="true" enabled="true">
This is my textbox. This is my textbox. This is my textbox. This is my
textbox.....
</textarea>

I am having a hard time with this one, and I thought it would be easy. I have a datagrid in which I have textboxs for users to enter data. One of the fields in the database behind the datagrid tells me if the textbox is readonly or not.

Hi, I needed to make a TextBox on a DataGrid ReadOnly based on the condition of another cell on its row. I achieved this using a Custom Data Column Class "DacDGTextColLotNo" but I can't get the TextBox to display its value when you leave the TextBox. I figure that I need to use the SetColumnValueAtRow Method but I am struggling to understand how.

Hey guys... I have a form that asks for several dates. I tried using asp calendar controls to set values of the date textboxes which were readonly. I found this annoying since each time I advanced a month and/or selected any date, it posted back and refreshed the page. So, instead, I resorted to an old javascript function I use a lot. The javascript creates a pop up (html) window and sets the value of the textbox when the user picks a...

Please help. This is a real puzzler! Originally posted on microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.windowsforms but no answer found! I have a read-only textBox which shows the results of a selection on another form. When the selection changes from the saved data, I wish to show it a different colour. As it is read-only the ForeColor property has no effect.

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,...
