View Full Version : search a list of strings in a certain web page

I have a list of strings (each is a title) in a table.
I would like to use an asp page to search each title in a certain web page (one web page for all searches),
anf id it exists or not, I would like to get that info in a table/list/column.

The part that I do not know is how to make this "find", and have a positive answer of that find or not.
Maybe it is possible to invoke the find option in IE (Edit->find OR "ctrl+f").

Thanks very much

You can use window.find() (http://www.devguru.com/Technologies/ecmascript/quickref/win_find.html) Javascript method to invoke the Find Dialog in Netscape. Here is the cross-browser solution (http://www.javascripter.net/faq/searchin.htm) that also works in IE.
