Using the Find Method of the Window Object


Can I find the text on an HTML page from another window (where the find option is available)?


If you are using Netscape Navigator 4+, you can use the find method of the Window object. This method works just as you would expect in that you can specify the string to look for, case-sensitivity, and direction. The syntax is as follows:

window.find(StringTLookFor, IsCaseSensitive, SearchBackwards)

IsCaseSensitive and SearchBackwards are booleans. Specify either TRUE or FALSE for these variables. Alternatively, you can call the find method with no arguments. Doing so will invoke the Find dialog box, allowing the user to specify their own arguments.
