Making small modifications to the search widget

  • Making small modifications to the search widget
  • Hi,

    I'm trying to make a few adjustments to the standard search widget (example: placeholder text). According to this post: I need to make an default template:

     <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sitefinity" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" %>
    <fieldset id="main" class="sfsearchBox" runat="server">
        <asp:TextBox ID="searchTextBox" runat="server" CssClass="sfsearchTxt1" />
        <asp:Button  id="searchButton" runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:SearchResources, Search %>" OnClientClick="return false;" CssClass="sfsearchSubmit" />

    and map this to the control. like this:

    HostType: "Telerik.Sitefinity.Services.Search.Web.UI.Public.SearchBox"
    LayoutTemplatePath: "~/App_Data/Sitefinity/WidgetTemplates/SearchBox.ascx" 

    When I modify the SearchBox.ascx with for example an other css class nothing changes. Am i forgetting something?


  • After some fiddling I tried rebooting the webserver (IIS) and this seems to do the trick! 

  • Hi Jos,

    I am glad you have resolved the issue. Please, keep in mind that registering new controls and widgets or making changes in their server code requires restart of the application.
