question - this is a table, and the user is trying to search for keywords under the column 2. However, the column 2 has a list of .rtf files. Can they search for a keyword inside the .rtf? Any advice/references would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  • This is definitely possible. Are you asking how to implement such a feature, or how it should work for the user? – maxathousand Jun 18 '18 at 17:43
  • Thanks, Max. How would it work for the user? – karthik rajendran Jun 18 '18 at 18:55

You can consider how Google Chrome behaves, when search term is within collapsed item. User is searching for "password", and Chrome displays a tooltip for the Sync collapsed section, where the search term is.

Try it yourself with chrome://settings URL:

So, just provide some visual indicator to achieve your goal.
