    Question Is it possible to dynamically populate a textarea with data from a database?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to re-create a listbox with the textarea element.
    Is it possible to dynamically populate the textarea with data from a database?.
    I want the data to list vertically like a listbox.

    If this possible, can you please provide an example of how I can go about doing this?.

    Thanks,
    Reina

    I'm confused.
    why do you need <textarea> for the listbox???
    why would you need access to db AFTER the page has loaded (at least that is the way I interpret "dynamically")
    if you are talking about populating a field when the page is loading, it has no relevance to how you get the data (database or not), but how you represent it.
