Strange TextArea indeed
Posted on 2000-03-06
I hope I am just overlooking something, but I noticed the other day, after having slapped a textarea control on a form on a page, that when the page displays, I can click anywhere in the textarea and the caret cursor will stick to that point and let me start typing. This is not typical behavior so I am hoping there is just some setting I am overlooking. You should not be allowed to place the caret anywhere there is no text or only at the very end of any text or inside any text that is available. That is not what is happening.
