I have a request to add a "find" feature to one of the pages in my web application. Does anyone know of a way to have a button that, when clicked, will call Ctl + F? This would effectively perform the same operation as clicking Edit -> Find.
Any resources you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I have my own find script I made

I think that onclick="window.find()" works in newer browsers...not 100% sure.

I tried your suggestion of window.find() but I couldn't get it to work on IE6. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Do you know of any way to get it to work in IE6? My application is on our intranet and we only support IE6.
