Search box


hi guys, is there a way to create in Javascript or Jquery to have a search box and search for the data within the HTML page.

In the HTML page, there's a lot of links.

Basically the HTML page looks like this:

File No 1 - Link to File No. 1
Document 2 - Link to Document No. 2
PDF 3 - Link to PDF No. 3 etc..

I don't know whether there's way to have a search box using Jquery or Javascript and let the user search on the text box and find those links from within the page itself.

Thanks for any input :)


First Google search returned this. It has the source and a working example. Let me know if it doesn't suit your needs.


Use jQuery plugins having a lot of extra functionality that makes searching easier.
