I have a div that contains hundreds of lines. I want to create a function that allows me to find a text and scroll into it:
So, I enter the wanted text in an input text, I click on the "Go" button that will trigger the "findAndScroll" function then I get scrolled to that text.
You can use a function like this to find the text and highlight it. You can then scroll to the highlighted element like this:
var offset = $("#id_of_highlighted_element").offset().top; window.scrollTo(0,offset);
or you can simply go the id like this
window.location = "#id_of_highlighted_element";
However window.scrollTo is more flexible because you can set the element to wherever you want on the page.
