Search box to find texts on the pages

Written by @kerixa 21 August 2012

This Code gives you a text box and if the user wants to search for anything they just need to put their keywords in the box and this code immediately finds the keyword that the user is looking for

Code Snippet:

                                                
                                                <!-- this script is provided by www.htmlfreecode.com coded by: Kerixa Inc. -->

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript>
var NS4 = (document.layers);    
var IE4 = (document.all);
var win = window;    
var n   = 0;
function findInPage(str) {
  var txt, i, found;
  if (str == "")
    return false;
  if (NS4) {
    if (!win.find(str))
      while(win.find(str, false, true))
        n++;
    else
      n++;
    if (n == 0)
      alert("Not found.");
  }
  if (IE4) {
    txt = win.document.body.createTextRange();
    for (i = 0; i <= n && (found = txt.findText(str)) != false; i++) {
      txt.moveStart("character", 1);
      txt.moveEnd("textedit");
    }
    if (found) {
      txt.moveStart("character", -1);
      txt.findText(str);
      txt.select();
      txt.scrollIntoView();
      n++;
    }
    else {
      if (n > 0) {
        n = 0;
        findInPage(str);
      }
      else
        alert("Sorry, we couldn't find.Try again");
   }
  }
  return false;
}
