Try Anchor tag
Answered By Moderator1 on 10/15/2008 8:40:39 AM

You can try with anchor tag <a></a> instead of Link button. You can also create anchor tag dynamically with the following syntax.

HtmlAnchor hrefA = new HtmlAnchor();
hrefA.HRef = "#A";
hrefA.InnerText = "A";

The general Html syntax for the clickable anchor will be like

<a href="#A">A</a>

The Html syntax for the destination anchor where you want focus will be
<a id="#A">America</a>

Hope this will help you.

Hi.. I tried ur solution.

Actually my requirement is List of items are shown.
If I click a letter(link), the list of items should be displayed and the word which starts with letter(which is clicked) should be enabled or bold...

There must be difference between the selected one and unselect...

Thank u...
