Hello everybody,
Cannot recall how to do it but have a strong feeling that it was possible in HTML...

I want to have a table of contents on the top of my page and all items would be linked to description below. When the user clicks any item in the table of contents she should be taken to a proper section ON the same page.

I undestand that it would be href's or it might be asp.net links and I do remember it's something about having # somewhere - but that's all I can remember...

Watch Question

That's called a bookmark...
create a link to where to go...like this:
<a href="#test">Goto Test</a>
it must have '#' and then the name of the field

here is the destination field:
<p><a name="test"></a></p>
