CSS Question

Implementing a search bar to filter list items

I have a list of items that I want people to be able to filter through using a search bar. The list is currently separated into 6 categorys, when you click a category title it's content is displayed.

It's the content of these categories i'd like users to be able to search through.

I have added the search bar, that should automatically filter as you type but it isn't working.



$(document).ready(function() {
var tcc = new $.ToClickControl($('.infoContainer'));

$('#box').keyup(function(){
var valThis = $(this).val().toLowerCase();
if(valThis == ""){
$('.three-quarters-column > li').show();
} else {
$('.three-quarters-column > li').each(function(){
var text = $(this).text().toLowerCase();
(text.indexOf(valThis) >= 0) ? $(this).show() : $(this).hide();
});
};
});

});

;(function($) {

$.ToClickControl = function(el, options) {

var defaults = {
activeClass: 'activeOption',

onCallback: function() {}
};

var plugin = this;

plugin.settings = {};

var init = function() {
plugin.settings = $.extend({}, defaults, options);
plugin.el = el;

active();
bindEvents();
};

plugin.Destroy = function() {
unbindEvents();
plugin.el.removeData();
};

var bindEvents = function() {
var select_container = plugin.el.find('.selectOptions');
var matching_container = plugin.el.find('.matchingOptions');
var activeClass = plugin.settings.activeClass;

select_container.find('p').on('click', function() {
if( $(this).attr('title') && !$(this).hasClass(activeClass) ) {

plugin.el.find('.' + activeClass).removeClass(activeClass);
$(this).addClass(activeClass);

matching_container.find('div[title]').hide('fast');
findMatch(matching_container, $(this).attr('title') ).show('fast');

}
});
};

var unbindEvents = function() {

};

var findMatch = function( container, title ) {
return container.children('div[title="' + title + '"]');
};

var active = function() {
var select_container = plugin.el.find('.selectOptions');
var matching_container = plugin.el.find('.matchingOptions');
var activeClass = plugin.settings.activeClass;

if( plugin.el.find('.' + activeClass) )
findMatch(matching_container, select_container.find('.' + activeClass).attr('title') ).show();
};

init();

};

})(jQuery);
