SearchIn - jQuery autocomplete plugin that transforms your HTML select list to autocomplete field.
It's better to see with own eyes :)
SearchIn works as follows:
You need to include jQuery on your page
Then add HTML code with
<select data-searchin="searchin" id="my-id"> <option value="5">Cat</option> <option value="6">Goose</option> <option value="7">Pig</option> <option value="8">Dog</option> </select>
- SearchIn will automatically search for
data-searchin="searchin"and transform it to
searchin class and attribute
data-value which will hold the value that corresponds to
<select> control after the user selects one and
<select> e.g. if you
<select id="my-select"> then
<input> will have
id="seachin-my-select" with the help of it you can
get current text value and the value itself from
var text = $('input#searchin-my-select').val(); var value = $('input#searchin-my-select').data('value');
$('select.some-select').searchin(); // or with chaining $('select.some-select').searchin().val('Your Country');
Tests were written with Jasmine testing framework and reside in
To run tests you need to open
spec/specrunner.html file in your Firefox browser(Chrome isn't supported).
