 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.

I may be answering my own question here.  The power control widget had
the GPS antenna selected to "on".  When I turn off the GPS antenna in
the power control widget, the antenna goes off.
