TextBox - Read Only AND scrollable?

    Setting a Web control textbox to readonly makes it impossible to click on
    the control, and then use the arrow keys to scroll to the end of text that
    is partially hidden. Is there any way around this? ReadOnly seems to
    "lock" input - which is good for preventing changes, but bad for scrolling.

    Thanks

    You could use an IFrame, or an embedded DIV instead.
