Hi,

I have a requirement to store URL in text box and when user link on that URL, it needs to be open. Although this text box needs to add on click on one Add button dynamically.

Is there any way to store URL in text box. Currently I am able to add new Text box dynamically by clicking on Add button. Beside this I am also able to open appropriate URL if I click on Text box.

But "how to show contain of text box as a URL." same as we have in tag.

It is impossible to make a textbox have a working url in it.

You can format the entire element it with CSS to have underlined text.

Sachin,

You can have the feel of URL existing in the text box with this piece of style below.
<textarea name="comments" cols="50" rows="10" style="text-decoration:underline;font-family:Arial;font-size:8pt;color:blue;">http://www.google.co.in/</textarea>;

But having a active URL inside textbox is not possible.


 
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
