In Holland we have a saying: standing on the shoulders of giants, even a midget
can look further ahead. Standing on the shoulders of giant Jake, I can combine
two of his ideas:
- a pure html form on any page
- the ?CreateDocument url string (see the url cheat sheet on notes.net)
in any form/page/view/etc: put the following pass-through html:
The above creates a form on your form/page/view/etc with a field called
searchQuery and a submit button next to it.
Create a form "available to Public Access users" called "Return" with two
fields: searchQuery (editable, text) and $$Return (computed, text). Make all
the required calculations on the searchQuery field in the $$Return field.
e.g. "[/yourdatabase/yoursearchview?SearchView&Query=" + searchQuery +
(keep square brackets)
That is it, simple and effective.
