Search Highlight in jQuery


This project will teach teach you how to include a search highlight in your website in an easy way using jQuery. What we'll do is to download highlight jQuery plugin and customize the codes. Here is the sample code that I created using highlight jQuery plugin:

  1. $(document).ready(function() {
  2. $('#search_btn').click(function(){
  3. var search_str = $('#str_search').val();
  4. $('body').unhighlight().highlight(search_str);
  5. });
  6. });

Just simply include the downloaded highlight jQuery plugin and jQuery plugin on your project.

Hope you learn from this.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
