Do you mean that the table search doesn't work at all or that the search term is just not highlighted in the table cells?

Hi, The table search can work to output the searched rows, but I want to see the search text as highlighted in the cells, such as the function of find() from the browser ( when you press the keys "Ctrl+F', and then input any words), you will see the searched text as highlighted with yellow color.

Thanks,James

This is expected behavior. Table search should only add filtering and show only the rows that contain the search term. Please try to add additional information to your first post, the answers should only contain a solution for the problem presented in the question (first post).
