View Full Version : Find string on page problem

Mar 8th, 2008, 08:03 PM
Hi Guys,
I am a newbie to javascipt so hopefully I can easily communicate my problem to you all.

Below I have included some simple code that finds a specified string on a page.
Fairly simple looking, creates a new TextRange() object with the text contained by the body.
findText() and select() methods are then used to located the string...easy!!

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Script-Type" CONTENT="text/javascript">
<script language="JavaScript">
function function1()
var q = document.body.createTextRange();

<input type="button"


My problem is not really with the code itself, its the fact that I cannot implement this in Internet Explorer Mobile.
Looking at the IE mobile documentation (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb415428.aspx) its clear that it has diminished functionality (compared to IE) with regard to scripting, thus it does not contain the createTextRange() method.

I was hoping someone may have some idea of how to go about implementing the above code in IE mobile (if even possible).

Thanks for your help,
