How To- Search records or data in gridview using jQuery

In my previous post, I explained bind the gridview using jQuery. Here I am going to show you how to search record or data with in Gridview using jQuery.

In previous posts, I explained Page Scroll to Top with jQuery, Automatically Refresh Page Using Java Script , How to Create a Textarea Character Counter, Animated Sliding Recent Post Widget For Blogger, Change Input to Upper Case using Java Script, Calculate Age from Date of Birth Using Java Script, jQuery .toggleClass() example and some other articles related to C#ASP.Net jQuery, Java Script and SQL Server.

First take a look on our problem or requirement.
Grdiview Data

As you can see on above image, there is a Gridview which is populated with records and a Textbox with a Search button. Our requirment is when user enter some text in Textbox and click on the Search button, filter the records from Gridview on any of the column. For example:- "ma" is entered then only those rows should be visible which have "ma" in any of the column. It can be in ID, First Name, Last Name or Email ID column.
Filtered Data
After understanding the acquirement, now take a look on ASPX page markup.

            var counter = 0;
            //Get the search text
            var searchText = $('#<%=txtSearch.ClientID %>').val().toLowerCase();
            //Hide No record found message
            $('#<%=lblMessage.ClientID %>').hide();
            //Hode all the rows of gridview
            $('#<%=grdDemoGrid.ClientID %> tr:has(td)').hide();
            if (searchText.length > 0) {
                //Iterate all the td of all rows
                $('#<%=grdDemoGrid.ClientID %> tr:has(td)').children().each(function () {
                    var cellTextValue = $(this).text().toLowerCase();
                    //Check that text is matches or not
                    if (cellTextValue.indexOf(searchText) >= 0) {
                if (counter == 0) {
                    //Show No record found message
