Turning off search hit h'lights

 ğDoes anyone know how to turn off search highlights?
storrier Hello helpers -

I have been using Activ for several years and very happy with the s'ware.

I have for the first time, decided to highlight the search hits, using the scripts posted on the Active site.

The highlites work great, except the searched word/s stay h'lighted, even after the page has been closed and re-opened.

By going back to search (without entering a word), seems to turn the highlighs off - but can't expect a reader to do this.

Has anyone got the necessary piece of script to add into the 'hilite' script that will turn the h'light off when the page/s are closed???

Thanks in advance,

storrier Well....we are not exactly being knocked over in the rush, are we?  Doesn't seem to be much activity in this forum now - bit of a shame.

However, I want to report that after a considerable number of emails back and forth from Sunil, we have pretty well sorted this issue.  I really just want to leave a BIG thank you here for him - he spent lots of time and effort for me - THANK YOU Sunil - heaps appreciated!!

rlemire Storrier;

You probably did not get much re-action because your problem is unique and Sunil may be the only person who could answer your question. (Sometimes it takes awhile for him drop in)

There are many who monitor this forum and would likely answer questions if they feel they can contribute towards a solution.

Unfortunately there are also a number of new members who abuse the forum and most of their posts amount to nothing more than self serving spam with absolutely no value to anyone. I'm not saying your post was in this category -- but that may explain why you do not see many meaningful contributions to the forum.

storrier Ron,
Thank you for your reply - yes, I realise there are those who take any / every opportunity to further their own cause in ways not in accord with the forum's aims - there will always be those kinds of people.

However, the 'genuine' ones know who they are and will usually help out wherever they can - there must be lots who have benefited from your input over the years.  

Thanks again - good wishes,

EBookCompiler You need to email me if you have a support question - webmaster at ebookcompiler.com - I don't read every thread on the forum.

The hit highlights are done using a JavaScript. You have the source for the Javascript so you can change it to do whatever you want.

You could also add a link or something to your pages, saying

<A HREF="##SEARCHRESET()">Remove Highlights</A>
