I am designing a web application in java using JSP's/Servlets, where I need to have some list elements to be set to editable. How can I make list boxes editable(Similar to the Address bar of our browser's)? What are the standards in designing web applications? How can I achieve that functionality.
Initially I thought of using text fields below List boxes but as my form is too long I don't want to use these text fields.
Please clarify me about using Editable List box..

There is no such element in HTML.
If you need the functionality, you _have_ to fake it.
You might make a hidden text field that lies on top of a normal select, and when the select is clicked twice (NOT double clicked - clicked, and then after a pause is clicked again), show the textbox populated with the select's value.
When the textbox loses focus, hide it again.
Hope it helps... [ October 17, 2006: Message edited by: Scheepers de Bruin ]
