find and highlght on page webview RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi i was searching on web a lot but i couldn't find specific info of what i need :

    when open chm files in windows built-in reader and try to use the the search the reader will find the results and highlight the terms in the standard web-view ,all modern browsers have this functionality and best of them is chrome android whats i notice in chrome is able to highlight exact terms even if there is newline between words ,  what i searched i found how to inject java script highlighter but i don't think browsers like chrome or internet explorer use this method so my question is there library that i can use to modify it that i can play with it by regex or some other method to make it detect newlines or match diacritic text or case sensitive and so ..

    i'm using c# vs for mobile development for developing advanced search engine with lucene.net
