A Search Bar proxy lets you create a field that can be used to perform searches in your output. When you build the output, the proxy is replaced with the generated search bar.
- Open a master page that you will use when generating the target.
- Place your cursor where you want the search bar to be shown in the output.
- Select Insert > Proxy > Insert Search Bar Proxy. The Search Bar Proxy dialog opens.
If you have added a Search Bar skin component to your project and want to use it to control the look of the search bar, you can select it from the Skin File field.
See Editing Skin Settings and HTML5 Skin Styles.
If you do not select a Search Bar skin component in this field, Flare uses the first one it finds in your project (if one exists). Otherwise, Flare provides a default design.
Note: The Search Bar proxy and skin component are not supported in HTML5 Tripane output.
- Click OK. The proxy is added.
- Click to save your work.
After inserting a Search Bar proxy, you can edit it. To do this, open the topic or master page where the proxy is inserted, right-click on it, and select Edit Search Bar Proxy.
