Hello all,

I have a code that searches a page and then highlights the information that is found. I would like to create a code that if it is not on page A then it should stop and search page B. If it is not on both pages then it will return nothing. Below is the code that I have that searches a page.

$("body").delegate("#inoiceNumber_a", "click", function(e){
      JumpAndSearch("#inoiceNumber", "si_", "#divSearchErrorMsg", SPSITENAME + "invoiceInformation.aspx");
});


Now if I can only let it search two pages if it doesn't get it in the first page.

Thanks in advance.

You can't access more than 1 page at a time in jQuery. You would need to code this on the backend or load the second page inside of the first page with ajax.

Oh ok. Well can jQuery do a window pop for the second page. If so I can it be done?

Yes you could load the second window in a popup or lightbox and do your highlighting from there. You could pass the information to be highlighted after a hash tag, then have your ready function check for the existence of that hash tag and highlight content.
