#Examples (require src/leaflet-search.css)

Adding the search control to the map:

map.addControl( new L.Control.Search({layer: searchLayer}) );
//searchLayer is a L.LayerGroup contains searched markers 

Short way:

var map = new L.Map('map', { searchControl: {layer: searchLayer} });

#Advanced Examples

Ajax request to search.php for retrieve elements locations:

map.addControl( new L.Control.Search({url: 'search.php?q={s}'}) );

Request to third party JSONP service, implements Geocode Searching using OSM API:

map.addControl( new L.Control.Search({
    url: 'http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&q={s}',
    jsonpParam: 'json_callback',
    propertyName: 'display_name',
    propertyLoc: ['lat','lon']
}) );

Search and color features vector in GeoJSON layer:

var searchControl = new L.Control.Search({layer: geojsonLayer, circleLocation:false});
 
searchControl.on('search_locationfound', function(e) {
    
    e.layer.setStyle({fillColor: '#3f0'});
 
}).on('search_collapsed', function(e) {
 
    featuresLayer.eachLayer(function(layer) {
        featuresLayer.resetStyle(layer);
    }); 
});
 
map.addControl(searchControl);

Static data source:

var data = [
    {"loc":[41.575330,13.102411], "title":"aquamarine"},
    {"loc":[41.575730,13.002411], "title":"black"},
    {"loc":[41.219190,13.062145], "title":"cyan"}
];
 
map.addControl(new L.Control.Search({
    markerLocation: true,
    callData: function(text, callResponse) {
        
        //here can use custom criteria or merge data from multiple layers
 
        callResponse(data);
    }
}) );
