    Question How to Display search results without a Frame.

    Hi,

    I am using a Javascript code snippet for my website for doing page searches on a site - on local system network (not hosted/no php). The files are pre-indexed and thus searched.

    With the help of 'Xelaho' who was very helpful, I was able to add two types of search options - a Keyword entry based one and a 'Dropdown' choice one.

    Both the options work well when they are used separately, But now my issue is to integrate these both options on a single page without using frames for displaying the results for - Keyword entry and Dropdown search.

    I believe something in the code prevents the search data to show up or either of the controls for the search.

    Can anyone help?

    The code for normal keyword entry search is (instructions to not change 's')

    Code:
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form>
    <table width=100% cellpadding=5 style="background-color:#EFF;border:2px solid #069"><tr><td align=center>
    <em>Site Search</em><br>
    <input type="Button" value="Go!" onClick="return NS()">
    <input type=text name="s" size=24 onKeyDown="if(event.keyCode==13)return NS()">&nbsp;<input type="Button" value="Go!" onClick="return NS()">
    </td></tr></table>
    </form>
    <script>
    The code for Dropdown search is :

    Code:
    <select name="s">
      <option value="value1">Value 1</option> 
      <option value="value2">Value 2</option>
      <option value="value3">Value 3</option>
    </select>
    this is the whole code for the search

    Code:
    <title>Site Search</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    body {color:#000000;font:10pt Verdana,Tahoma,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif}
    em {color:#0000FF;font:bold 10pt Verdana,Tahoma,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif}
    b {font-weight:bold}
    -->
    </style>
    <script language="JavaScript">

    so, will the go button on the left just return results from the dropdown and the go button on the right just results from the input box?

    Or if not, how else will the code know what it is supposed to be searching for?

    no, what I'm asking is this: say the user types something into the text box then changes their mind and selects something from the dropdown. They press the go button - how does the code know which value to search for? Is there a preference? Or does the search from the dropdown start as soon as the user chooses an option, and they only have to press the button if they're using the textbox?
