Find Dialog

Question: How do I invoke the browser's Find dialog from JavaScript?

Answer: In Netscape Navigator 4.0 or newer, you can call the window.find() method to invoke the browser's Find dialog. Try it now:

This example was created using the following code:
<input type=button value="Find (Netscape only)"
onClick="if (navigator.appName=='Netscape'
&& parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>3) window.find();
else alert('Your browser does not support \'window.find()\'!')
Internet Explorer does not support window.find(). However, in both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, you can use a script that finds a string on the page. For more information, see Searching for text. Copyright © 1999-2006, Alexei Kourbatov
