Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the foundLoc function to determine the location in the stack window where the found text is shown.

Value:

The foundLoc function returns two positive integers separated by a comma.

Comments:

When the find command finds text, it surrounds the text with a box. The first item of the return value is the horizontal distance in pixels from the left edge of the stack to the left edge of this box. The second item of the returned value is the vertical distance from the top edge of the stack window to the top of the box.

The foundLoc function is cleared when the text selection moves into the foundField or when the current card is closed. At the same time, the box the find command draws around the found text disappears. If there is no box, the foundLoc function returns empty.
