    Is there a way to lunch Edit -> Find (on This Page) from a button?

    Hello

    Because I don't want to tell my users to go to Edit menu then click Find (on This Page).

    Thank you..

    For Netscape, you can invoke the Edit-Find dialog by:

    window.find([string[, caseSensitive, backward]])

    where string is the string to find, caseSensitive and backward are booleans. All the arguments are optional, so you may just call window.find().

    Look for a cross-browser Edit-Find script in dynamicdrive.com. There's one in there.

    I don't think you can programmatically bring up the Edit-Find dialog in IE. You can modify the DD script to make it look like the real Find dialog.
