Gsearch is a tiny, fast jQuery live search plugin that allows to search through large element sets and highlight matched text like the search result. The plugin will autumatically generate a sticky search filed which allows to search text through a particular container as you type.

How to use it:

1. Add jQuery library and the jQuery Gsearch plugin's script into your webpages.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="gsearch.js"></script>

2. Create an inline element to place the sticky search field.

<span id="update_stiky_search"></span>

3. Call the function and specify the target container you want to search text through (Default is 'body').

$('#update_stiky_search').GSearch({
  content_main: $('.main')
});

4. Call the function and specify the target container you want to search text through (Default is 'body').

$('#update_stiky_search').GSearch({
  content_main: $('.main')
});

5. Change the background color of matched text.

$('#update_stiky_search').GSearch({
  content_main: $('.main'),
  background_color: 'yellow'
});

6. Adjust the top margin of the sticky search field.

$('#update_stiky_search').GSearch({
  content_main: $('.main'),
  background_color: 'yellow',
  margin_top: '100px',
});

7. By default the plugin will add the CSS class 'highlight' to all matched text for further styling. You can change the CSS classname in the JavaScript.

$('#update_stiky_search').GSearch({
  content_main: $('.main'),
  background_color: 'yellow',
  margin_top: '100px',
  highlight_class: 'highlight'
});
