jQuery Plugin To Filter Rows Of An Html Table - Table Filtering

A lightweight jQuery client-side table filtering plugin that allows to show/hide table rows depending on the value of input field you typed.

How to use it:

1. Create a normal input field to filter through your tabular data.

<input type="text" id="filter" placeholder="...type here...">

2. Add the CSS class 'filter-cell' to the table cells you want to filter.

  <td class="filter-cell">Ellen Ripley</td>
  <td>[email protected]</td>
  <td class="filter-cell">Dwayne Hicks</td>
  <td>[email protected]</td>

3. Put jQuery library and the jQuery Table Filtering plugin's script at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.tableFilter.js"></script>

4. Call the function on the top container and specify the html table you want to filter.

  tableID: '#YOUR-TABLE-ID'

5. Possible plugin options.


  // CSS selectors
  tableID: '#filter-table',
  filterID: '#filter',
  filterCell: '.filter-cell',

  // auto focus on load
  autoFocus: false,

  // is case sensitive?
  caseSensitive: false,

  // text for no results
  noResults: 'no results found',

  // The plugin will determine the # of columns based on first row.
  // If your first row has less columns than rest of table you can set column count here
  columns: null
