Live Search JQuery Plugin

This plugin enables ordinary text inputs to have live seach capabilities. As a user types, the plugin calls a specified function.


  • Query Delay
    • Only executes the callback after a delay (default is 250ms) so that fast typers won’t drown your website with too many calls.
  • Minimum Search Length
    • Specify a minimum search length (default is 3 characters) so that your system doesn’t get incomplete and broad searches.
  • Initial text
    • Display initial text (default is “Search”) that is automatically cleared when a user focuses on the text input. Style this by using the class “inactive_search”.
  • Multiple Instances
    • This plugin written so that you can have multiple live search text inputs on the same page.
