Doing seach function on auto scroll load feature like facebook

I have done the auto scroll load feature like facebook. I fixed it, everytime when i scroll to the bottom it will auto load another 4 data row from my database and display on in HTML. By the way i also want to do a search feature.

For search feature, i'm using jcfilter (https://github.com/jaschahal/jcTextHighlighterFilter/tree/master/jcFilter/jquery) which is search the same wordings. Now the problems come, if i did not scroll to bottom it won't load extra 4 rows of data. that mean my search feature only search for the 1st 4 data that display. Is there any idea on the search feature? Let said total have 12 data, but at the very 1st it only display 4 data. when i search for similiar words, the search features will go through all the 12 data and filter out the data that have similiar word.

if not the search feature i currently done is useless.

Hi Jackie,

What sort of backend are you working with?

In the event you are working with a backend and you need to dynamically create content on your page from your backend (i.e. facebook notifications) then I would suggest you use a mix of AJAX and jQuery UI to make that possible. If the content is already existing, and you want to hide it until your user scrolls to a certain point of the page, I would suggest you just look into the jQuery UI library for the given effect you want.

Hope that helps, Dylan
