Find text on a webpage

Recommended Posts


I need to do a MouseClickDrag to highlight text on a webpage.

Can I do a regex call for this to find text in an html document?

There is text inbetween then line but at the start of what i want to highlight and copy the regex call would be


where the .* is for anyone that is not keen on regex will match the remaing characters on the line I know my regex is correct

I need the cursor to click and highlight starting at the beginning of this string 2011-10-13-

The date 2011 should suffice but if there is a way to highlight the regex match and copy that out of the html document while viewing in IE that is what I am trying to accomplish
