This time I want to show how you can add a search text box in your web page using Google's search engine, so you can get full search functionality without writing any code, no matter what programming language you use
<form action="http://www.google.com/search" method="get" name="searchform" target="_blank">
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<input name="sitesearch" type="hidden" value="http://nereolopez.blogspot.com" />
<input alt="search" name="as_q" size="20" type="text" value="Search this web" />
<input title="Search" type="submit" value="Search" />
This is just an HTML form which contains a hidden field with the URL where we want Google to search, an input (
) where user can input what he/she wants to search, and a submit button.
of the form is the Google's Search Engine URL and will be opened in a new tab in the browser when user clicks the submit button.
As we are using the
method, the resulting URL would be something like this:http://www.google.com/search?sitesearch=nereolopez.blogspot.com&as_q=silverlight
If you want to check how it works, just check this example
Hope you like it. As ever, please feel free to leave any comment, suggestion or question.
Thanks for reading!
