CTRL-F Shortcut Key
Issue ctrl-f from within javascript for page without toolbars

 6:06 pm on May 13, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a page used by non-computer folks. It is full screen with no toolbars showing. I want to invoke the browser "Find in this Page" from within a javascript. How can I do this?

I tried to search this site for references to this topic but the search feature is not working for me!

Thanks in advance for any/all replies.

I figured out that I can do this with window.find() in Netscape.
How can I do it in IE?

How about something that works in Safari?

I can modify this script to do what I need.
