you need to use a webcontrol with anchors <a>. then you control the OnBeforeNaviagate event to detect when user presses a link.

Thanks for your reply. I'll give that a go.

Any idea how can I can do it in a CheckedListBox?

Thanks

use some specialized listview control, or use a WebControl again.

Ok, i may have to upgrade. Ive got a copy of 2005. Im just worried that its going to take me a while to convert my current code.
Have you had any experience of upgrading from 2003 to 2005?
It is an easy upgrade?

Thanks

Great.

Finailly, does the .net 2.0 web control allow me to change the html directly without the need to create html documents?

Thanks
