how to add link to input field


I have an asp page that display clientname in input box (read only). I want to be able to click on client anme and it take me to another page, custdetail.asp. How can I do that?

<td width="130" > <input class="ver10pxblk" type="text" readonly size="22" value="<%= clientname %>"> </td>

Thanks in advance

RE: how to add link to input field

Would this do it?


<td width="130"><a href="custdetail.asp"><%=clientname%></a></td> 

RE: how to add link to input field


Thanks xwb but this won't work. it has to show in input box.

RE: how to add link to input field

Does it have to be an input box or a box with a border? If it is a box with a border, set the border width in your td element.

RE: how to add link to input field

xwb, can you please provide sample code for a box with a border?

RE: how to add link to input field

Something like this will give you a red border, 2 pixels wide with a 4 pixel border around it.


<td style="border:solid 2px #FF0000; padding:4px">
