 Hello Everyone,

I want to select text from Webview and than Highlight it.

 I am able to get the selected text using *emulateshiftHeld() *method but If
i try to search it in file and than Underline it the problem is that it
doesn't know the position of text so it underlines that word in whole file
as many time it is repeated.

So i want to find the position of that text (which will be known only at
runtime) in webview. Can anyone please help me??

Awaiting for a positive reply..

 emulateshiftHeld is not a documented function. I would recommend
finding another way. The problem with using undocumented features is
the have a nasty habit of going away, changing or suddenly doing
something you didn't expect. If you want your app to not break
unexpectedly, use documented features only.

1. What's the minimum requirement for a phone to run Android?

What's the minimum requirement for a phone to run Android both
technical spec-wise and feature-wise? I believe that, feature-wise,
there are no requirements... so basically just the basic numeric pad,
direction pad, call and end call button, and a viewing screen (the
basics of any cell phone) would be the minimum requirement. Am I
right? I'm just wondering, for future ideas of an app that will run on
any android phone. This is the major issue of Android in comparison to
the always consistent iPhone specs.
