I have a topic that contains 2 frames. The first frame (frame 1) is a topic that I want to add a search field to. The second frame (frame 2) displays external content (a directory listing of files). I'd like users to be able to enter all or part of a file name in a search field in frame 1 and have the matching filenames in frame 2 highlight.
I could tell users to use the "Find on this page" option in the IE toolbar but I'd prefer to put the same type of field directly in my topic.
Is this possible? If so, how?
Thanks so much,
There is nothing out of the box that could achieve this. It sounds like a scripting solution could be provided but I'm afraid that is not an area I know a lot about.
There is a link to a Find in Page script in Item 2 at http://www.grainge.org/pages/snippets/snippets.htm#robohtml. I'm not sure it will work for your specific requirement but it is worth a try.
