Case-sensitive Live Search on a Table with jQuery

I have a Live Search on a Table using jQuery. It works really well but is not case sensitive so

jim
will not show the same as
Jim
.

Demo: http://jsfiddle.net/qxks62x9/



$("#search").on("keyup", function() {
var value = $(this).val();

$("table tr").each(function(index) {
if (index !== 0) {

$row = $(this);

var id = $.map($row.find('td'), function(element) {
return $(element).text()
}).join(' ');





if (id.indexOf(value) <0) {
$row.hide();
}
else {
$row.show();
}
}
});
});

table, tr, td, th{
border: 1px solid blue;
padding: 2px;
}

table th{
background-color: #999999;
}

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<table>
<tr><th>Forename</th><th>Surname</th><th>Extension</th></tr>
<tr><td>Jim</td><td>Carey</td><td>1945</td></tr>
<tr><td>Michael</td><td>Johnson</td><td>1946</td></tr>
</table>
<br />
<input type="text" id="search" placeholder=" live search"></input>




Answer

You can just lowercase both strings.

  • (id.toLowerCase().indexOf(value.toLowerCase()) < 0)
