Before sometime I had written a post on jQuery case-insensitive expression filter. Now today we will learn about how to put simple filter for our HTML table using jQuery and it’s case-insensitive expression.
Yes, we are in the world of AJAX where we don’t live without jQuery, Prototype or Mootools but when it comes to explaining someone that how raw ajax works, you need an example of plain AJAX which we have been using 5 years back when these libraries were either just born and were not as famous as today. Because my favorite jQuery has become a de facto standard when it comes to DOM manipulation or AJAX.
Recently I have to give an example to one of my friend on how raw AJAX works and here I am sharing that sample with my blog readers as a reference.
Most of the time to search through DOM and filter text we need a jQuery Expression/filter which gives us case-insensitive result. I believe it’s required to have it as a part of jQuery base-library but anyway writing your own is very simple.
I have gone through some of other implementation before writing this but here this version is complete copy of jQuery library’s “contains” filter except it is case-insensitive.
jQuery 1.5.2 is released (on April 2nd) as a bug-fix release of jQuery version 1.5.x, fixing about 18+ issues/bugs reported. Along with that couple of days back on 31st March 2011 jQuery Mobile’s alpha-4 version has been released.
jQuery mobile project is making good and steady progress though from their road-map published earlier I was expecting production ready release of jQuery mobile in Jan 2011. As I have invested into jQuery mobile as a technology and tool for one of my project and it’s obvious that I can not release that when framework itself is not mature for production.
