I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Input box: <input type="text" name="T1" size="20">

Now is it possible to display an active hyperlink (<a href="http://www.example.com">example</a>)in that input box

no you can't. but a serverside language won't help you either. You would need to resolve to some dhtml solution or use editors like tinymce or fckedit.

Thanks.  I had found a COM object that might work but that was as close as I could find.  I did not think so but verification is always good
