Search with HTML forms and Frames

You can generate a HTML search form with frames by using the [Search Form] button, or by using [Tools | Generate HTML Form].

The default name for the search result frame is "afsresult" and can be changed by modifying the "Name of Result Frame" field in the Form Generator. If you prefer your search result to be displayed in the SAME frame as the search form, use "afsform" as the value for "Name of Result Frame" field in the Form Generator.


You will then see a form similar to the image below. Search form is in the LEFT frame and search results will be displayed in the RIGHT frame.

To customize the form, all you need to do is to modify the HTML code of the search form inside the left frame. The search results will be displayed in the frame named "afsresult", or in the frame you specified in the "Name of Result Frame" field.

(B) Default file loading: The default HTML file loaded in the result frame before any search.
(C) Form Folder: The folder where the search form, frames and other related files are stored.
