Clearing a Custom Function Display within Search

Hi

 

I've implemented Brian Dunning's Custom function (https://www.briandunning.com/cf/578) for highlighting text within search results.

 

Let ( [

// TEST FOR MATCH

pos = Position ( text ; searchString ; 1 ; 1 )

] ;

// IF MATCH IS FOUND

Case ( pos ;

// BEGIN CALCULATION

Let ( [

textBefore = Left ( text ; pos - 1 ) ;

len = Length ( searchString ) ;

string = Middle ( text ; pos ; len ) ;

textAfter = Right ( text ; Length ( text ) - pos - len + 1 )

] ;

textBefore & TextStyleAdd ( string ; HighlightYellow ) & HiliteSingle ( textAfter ; searchString )

) ;

 

I have a field called gUniversalSearch into which the search string is typed and a text field called study titles which it searches. The custom function is applied to the latter as a calculated value.

 

The search is driven by the following script.

 

 

It is kind of working, but I have two questions and would appreciate any help.

 

When I perform a search not all instances of a search word get highlighted and I would like to clear the highlighted text. Is there something in my above setup that is missing?

 

Thanks

 

Best Wishes

 

Gary
