TextField problem

i want a text box with a scroll bar so i used the textField in dreamweaver like so:

however users have the option of typing stuff into that box which i dont want. how can i go about getting a text box that looks the exact same but without the user input stuff??

You could place your text within a DIV and then use CSS to format this DIV

so in the body

<div class="myDiv">
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr,  sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt 
ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam voluptua. 

and within your CSS:

.myDiv {
	height: 100px;
	width: 100px;
	border: 1px solid;
	overflow: auto;

The overflow: auto will make sure that a scrollbar is shown if the text doesn’t fit within the DIV. If it does fit, the scrollbars are not shown.
