A Search Results proxy works with the Search Bar proxy and allows you to create a container that is used to display the results of end user searches in your output. When you build the output, the proxy is replaced with the generated search results.
- Open a topic that you want to use to hold the search results. Do not insert this kind of proxy into a master page.
- Place your cursor where you want the search results to be shown in the output.
- Select Insert > Proxy > Insert Search Results Proxy. The Search Results Proxy dialog opens.
A skin component lets you control the look of generated search results. If you have added multiple skin components to your project, you can use the Skin File field to select the one to associate with this proxy. You can then edit that skin component to change its appearance.
See HTML5 Skin Styles.
Note: The Search Results 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 Results proxy, you can edit it. To do this, open the topic where the proxy is inserted, right-click on it, and select Edit Search Results Proxy.
