Quick Search Form for HTML5 Output

Here is a quick search form you can use on another page to open an HTML5 output search in the skin. To use it, change the value for uri (third line) to the URL for your Flare HTML5 help system’s main file.┬áThen place the script and markup in the page markup where you want the form to appear on a web page.

<script>
    function open_help_search() {
        var uri = 'http://www.example.com/default.htm';
        var reference = encodeURIComponent(document.getElementsByName('help-search-text')[0].value);
        if (reference != "") {
            reference = '#search-' + reference;
        }

        window.open(uri + reference)
    }
</script>

<form name="help-search-form">
  <input type="text" name="help-search-text" />
  <button type="button" onclick="open_help_search()">Search help</button>
</form>
