I've seen this effect on other sites, but I don't know how to do it. What I'm trying to do is enable the user to highlight a portion of text on a webpage, then click an "edit" button and a little window will popup with that highlighted text in an editable mode (or it could be the entire paragraph tag that the highlighted text sits in). Then I want them to be able to edit the text however they want, click a "save" button, and the text updates within the webpage. I know how to do the last part of this, but I don't know how to make the popup window work and include the highlighted text.
Is there a way to selectively highlight text in an OverLib popup? I'd like to be able to make some text stand out from the rest of the text that is displayed.
I tried using a one-cell table with background set to yellow, but that caused the popup not to work at all (this might be a syntax problem - I haven't been able to find any syntax examples for putting a table inside an OverLib call)
I dont know how to make the function, i would like it so that when the user enters the text it searchs the text on the page and hilites behind the text yellow. So its a bit like a "find" function that hilites behind the word that it is asked to find.
I have a webpage that has a texbox with states that the user can select using ajax auto complete extender. The states are separated by the ; character. Is it possible to select everything between the ; characters if a user clicks on any of the text between them.
What I want to do specifically is add a CSS class to strings that start with an @ symbol. I can't seem to find any examples online and I haven't had enough experience with jquery to figure this out on my own.
I want it to highlight either the first word only, or just the line that the @ symbol is found on.
I've tried to do it using the funciton below, it cycles through allright, but only highlights each field whilst it is in focus, then loses it when it moves to the next field. The result is that only the last text/textarea within the form is highlighted. My aim is to highlight all fields for subsequent spell checking.
I'm working on an educational website for reading strategies where I would like to have the possibilty for the user to highlight text and the possibilty to check their highlighted answers.User task: Mark all the cause and effect connectors (because, so, therefore etc) in the text.Now I want the user to take the mouse and go over the text and mark all these connectors in the text. After marking the entire text the user will get feedback for his correct and incorrect answers and a possibilty to correct his mistakes.If the user marks in the sentence "He got hurt, because he fell of his bike." the word 'because' I would like somewhere else on the page be written that he did this correctly. If he would mark the word 'hurt' I would like the user to get a feedback saying that this answer is incorrect.Is this possible with simple html or do I need something else. If I need something else what do I need and maybe there is already a ready to use script for this.
I'm working on a JSP application, and wish to define a text-field so that it becomes marked (highligted) when it obtains focus.
I've tried giving the text-field a value when it obtains focus, but the value is not marked. So if i wish to alter the value, I have to manually delete the given 'onFocus' value before I set a new value.
<INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=test size=30 want this to be highlighted!'">
I'm missing something to highlight the text-field text in the code above.
I have spent the last week trying to figure out how to do the following: User types some text in a text box. The autocomplete queries a php script that returns JSON of matched values. I have got thedrop down list to show these values but I cannot for the life of me get the matched characters to turn bold. For example, if the user types in "rav" and my list contains:
RAVEN RAVE RAVEL
then I want it to appear as
RAVEN RAVE RAVEL
My current JS code is as follows (along with HTML):
