Search Box Example using HTML:

The Search Bar / Box example uses PLAIN HTML.

Basically it collects information from the HTML form, puts the value into the appropriate dff_…. Variable and pass the information to whatever page you have the Price Search Engine script integration.

How does search textbox in html works?


A search box is actually an HTML form placed on a page that acts as a search tool in a website. Before you can add it to your website, you need a crawler or a spider to crawl your website and collect information. You need to have a database of all the searchable items within your site for the search box to work.

If you have a search box on your website, it is your own search engine that will help users search things within your domain. A simple search box looks like this:

<form action=”URL” method=”get” name=”searchform”>
<input type=”text” value=”” name=”s” />
<input type=”submit” value=”Search” name=”search” />

The example is already a working search form. You just need to replace “URL” with the URL of the file that will perform the actual search. On the other hand, there is a much easier way of putting a search box on your website without the need to code your search file. Go to Google Custom Search to create a custom search box for your website.

The code looks something like this:
