Example of 'Search as you type' (instant search) in a repeater (grid)

I propose you a simple solution to ‘instant search’ multiple terms into columns of a repeater.

My example allows you to search up to 3 terms into 2 different columns, but you can extend it easily.

Works even if:

  • several spaces are used as separator
  • extra spaces at start or end of the search field
  • you mix uppercase and lowercase characters


  • works for up to 3 terms (but extensible)
  • terms must not contain commas

It’s not a universal solution for all searching needs, but it may be good enough in many cases.
