    In this paper, we study a regression model in which explanatory variables are sampling points of a continuous-time process. We propose an estimator of regression by means of a Functional Principal Component Analysis analogous to the one introduced by Bosq [(1991) NATO, ASI Series, pp. 509-529] in the case of Hilbertian AR processes. Both convergence in probability and almost sure convergence of this estimator are stated.
