Blog post: Highlight Text Inside a Textarea
Really nice. I like it. 😃
That's cool. I'm curious... What would be a real-world application for something like this? Did you find a need for this, or did you just want to see if it was possible?
@stevenmonson I used this concept for a regex tester: http://regexstorm.net/tester?p=%5cw%2b&i=Words!+More+words!
I made that site forever ago, so the highlighting code is aging. Hope to upgrade that site with what you see here. :)
