hehe I've had all kinds of pain working with IHTMLTxtRange, and in VB6 too which makes this sort of problem really annoying to track down.

Fortunately I never had to deal with hidden divs (it was an editor, they were displayed) so I didn't hit this particular bug ;)

You can see the actual code IE uses to call this function in res://shdoclc/find.dlg

Wow rich, I didn't know about that (although it doesn't work in IE7). The entire find dialog uses publically documented APIs - that's cool!

And it's even amusing, I've had to work with the text range enough to know what stuff like selection.type == "None" or "Text" and even "Control" means. Kinda surprising how much of that code I understand after moving on from the VB development world 2 or 3 years ago.

Thanks for the tip, Rich - I never knew you could do that!

BTW, it works for me in IE7, too.

heheh it works in IE7 on XP, but not Vista (at least for me).

I just tried the new inline search today. Awesome feature! I don't know how I lived without it for so long and I've only used it once so far! Thanks for putting the effort into this.
