Description

17 years ago
I use

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010118


I wanted to sent free SMS on the pages

http://www.free-sms.com/freesms/free_sms_form.php3

and

http://sms.dialing.de (-> choose D1 or so)

The textbox to enter the message (130 - 160 characters) didn´t
show a coursor as I clicked into it, but the text appeared.

As the text exeeded the line or the row, no scroll-bar was schown.

Thanks.

Bye,

Daniel

I can reproduce, mozilla0.7 win32. I suspect the wrong css though, as apparently
this page has not been modified for NS6, and apparently also they use 6
different stylesheets, one for each platform/browser couple.
Could try to provide a small testcase that allows us to reproduce this bug,
without the extra stuff? thanks alot,
Fabian.

On linux (2001-02-12-08) I am seeing a cursor in the textarea.  As for
scrollbars, the source sayeth:

<textarea cols=32 name=textarea rows=4 style="OVERFLOW: hidden"
wrap=VIRTUAL></textarea>

setting the overflow to hidden naturally means no scrollbars.

Reporter, are you still seeing the cursor problem?

still no caret on build 2001021304 win32.
I guess boris is right scrollbars won't appear if overflow is set to hidden.

there are a few errors in the file:
1. there is a nested textarea
2. there are mismatched start/end tags

try removing the nested textarea and ensure that the textarea has an end tag:
<textarea
  name=textarea 
  cols=32 
  rows=4  
  onChange=CheckLen(this) 
  onFocus=CheckLen(this) 
  onKeyDown=CheckLen(this) 
  onKeyUp=CheckLen(this) 
  style="OVERFLOW: hidden" 
  wrap=VIRTUAL>
</textarea>
