Hi, we are converting a VB application to Java based. In VB we have the data being displayed in a scrolling window . I am not sure about the name of the control object that is being used in VB for doing this. I want to have a similiar window on my JSP page. Has any one done it ? Where can I find a scrollable window like that ?
The easiest way to get a scrolling window inside your page is to use an iframe. An iframe is like a normal frame in that it opens a view of another HTML page, but different from normal frames in that it doesn't require a frameset - it works more like a table cell or div within the rest of your HTML. ..Unless by "scrolling window" you mean a form element, in which case you might be looking for a list box (a list of values from which the user can select, like a drop-down menu, but expanded). That's accomplished by using a <select> element with the rows attribute set to >1. hth, g.
