say I have a textbox...

id=txtTest

How can I get this to remain visible at all times when the page is being scrolled. I have posted this question several times and no one seems to provide any answer. Thus your help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

If i am understanding your question correctly you want the textbox to float on the screen while you scrool the page.

The only way I can imagine doing it is using Clientside Javascript to dynamically change its position in the browser.

Check out this code:

<html>

<script type="text/javascript">
var gTimer2 = null;
var gTimer2Count = 0;

function Timer2()
{
  gTimer2Count++;
  document.getElementById('txtBox').value = "Timer2 Running - " + gTimer2Count;
}
gTimer2 = window.setInterval("Timer2()",1000);

</script>

<body >



<div id="divTopRight"    style="position:absolute">
<input id='txtBox' type='TextBox' size="20" OnLoad = 'JSTimer();'/>

</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var ns = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape") != -1);
var d = document;
var px = document.layers ? "" : "px";
function JSFX_FloatDiv(id, sx, sy)
{
      var el=d.getElementById?d.getElementById(id):d.all?d.all[id]:d.layers[id];
      window[id + "_obj"] = el;
      if(d.layers)el.style=el;
      el.cx = el.sx = sx;el.cy = el.sy = sy;
      el.sP=function(x,y){this.style.left=x+px;this.style.top=y+px;};
      el.flt=function()
      {
            var pX, pY;
            pX = (this.sx >= 0) ? 0 : ns ? innerWidth :
            document.documentElement && document.documentElement.clientWidth ?
            document.documentElement.clientWidth : document.body.clientWidth;
            pY = ns ? pageYOffset : document.documentElement && document.documentElement.scrollTop ?
            document.documentElement.scrollTop : document.body.scrollTop;
            if(this.sy<0)
            pY += ns ? innerHeight : document.documentElement && document.documentElement.clientHeight ?
            document.documentElement.clientHeight : document.body.clientHeight;
            this.cx += (pX + this.sx - this.cx)/8;this.cy += (pY + this.sy - this.cy)/8;
            this.sP(this.cx, this.cy);
            setTimeout(this.id + "_obj.flt()", 40);
      }
      return el;
}
JSFX_FloatDiv("divTopRight",         -100,   10).flt();

</script>
</body>
