[Gambas-user] WebView - Findtext

The qt webview component has a Findtext method.


The first issue I am trying to resolve, is that the search function does 
not have a 'whole word' parameter.

ie: if you search for '*can*' it will highlight 'va*can*t'.

The second issue is that there is no way I can find to return the search 
'start position' to the top of the page.

If you are searching for a list of words in order. Apple,Banana,Pineapple.

and the text is:






After the first search item is complete (Apple) then a search for the 
other items in the list returns zero found.
The search pointer is set to the final 'apple' in the list and no other 
search items from the list are found.

Is there a way to start a search at the beginning of the document ?

Note# MyWebView.Refresh does not do this.- Tested.

Note# Setting the 'wrap' parameter in the findtext method to 'True', 
puts the search into an endless loop.

Any ideas ?
