    Thanks Colin, Below is my code. So can you please tell me how to include the custom search to filter the span class inside the td. It will be very helpful if you could send me a sample code

        table.columns().eq(0).each(function (colIdx) {
    
            $('input', table.column(colIdx).footer()).on('keyup change', function () {
    
    
                table.column(colIdx)
                    .search(this.value)
                    .draw();
            });
        });
