Examples

The following example shows how to use the inRange method to show that two TextRange objects are equal.


<html>
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload=fnCheck;
function fnCheck(){
    var oRng1 = document.body.createTextRange();
    var oRng2 = oRng1.duplicate();
    var bInside = oRng1.inRange(oRng2); // returns true;
}
</script>
   
<body>
    <div id=div1>
    Content for division 1.
    </div>
    <div id=div2>
    Content for division 2.
    </div>
</body>
</html>

The following example shows how to use the inRange method to show that two contained ranges are not equal.


<html>
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload=fnCheck;
function fnCheck(){
  	 var oRng1 = document.body.createTextRange(); // create a text range
	   var oRng2 = oRng1.duplicate();		// create a duplicate range base on oRng1

    oRng1.moveToElementText(document.getElementById("div1"));
    oRng2.moveToElementText(document.getElementById("div2"));
    var bInside = oRng1.inRange(oRng2); // returns false;
}
</script>
   
<body>
    <div id="div1">
    Content for division 1.
    </div>
    <div ID="div2">
    Content for division 2.
    </div>
</body>
</html>
