I am trying to make a javascript search. I have one page that consists of a table. I would like to be able to search the page for a term and if that term appears in a certain row of the table, it will return the entire table row.

i.e. if I search for "hello" and there is a row in the table with the contents "hello my name is adam", it will return then entire row.

ANy help would be appreciated! thanks in advance.

for(c=0; c text = tbl.rows[r].cells[c].innerText;

Your table should have an id,e.g. "myTable" and be enclosed in a form that will go like this:
