IE DOM Hackery

Recommended Posts

PoorLuzer

People,

I need help - technical ones, to implement a need I have.

I want to highlight certain text in IE 6 and insert some HTML code automatically into the corresponding section of the source code (DOM?).

For example,

I highlight some text in a web page opened in IE 6 and it gets highlighted in yellow (the script finds out which element corresponded to the selection and inserts/injects HTML to highlight it).

OR

I highlight some text in a web page opened in IE 6 and it gets transformed into a clickable link (the script finds out which element corresponded to the selection and inserts/injects HTML to turn it into a hyperlink).

and so on ...

Is this impossible to do?

Has this been done before?

Anyone even started out on doing this or something similar?

[suggestions on Chrome, FireFox, Safari... you get the idea.. nopes not interested.. IE its gonna be]

We did something similar here.

This code seems to address the issue of highlighting - I believe I can get that done already.

What I want to stress on is the "locate the element in the DOM/Source corresponding to the selected text/object in the rendered view" part.

But thanks anyways for some cool highlighting code!

However, hope everyone understands the primary focus of this thread now :-)
