Last week Dave Ward wrote a great post Use jQuery and quickSearch to interactively search any data. In his post he explained how to use the plugin and also a work around that is needed to make the plugin play nice with ASP.NET. I recommend taking a look at his post if your new to the quickSearch plugin. Reading through the comments, Jinno wanted to use the quickSearch plugin along with the tableSorter plugin which I thought was a great idea. Dave provided a hint in his comments that to get the two working together you would probably need to "re-tableSorter the table in quickSearch’s onAfter event" which got me started.
