Hi,

I am currently working in a project where IFrame is blocked. Hence, the top navigation and left navigation panes of the webhelp output were not loading. Now, we have manually created a TOC and the Index page which are working. However, we are unable to create the Search feature. Although there is a search feature available in Robohelp 17 (Insert>HTML Form>Search Field), it is also not working. Can anybody tell how the search feature under HTML form can be made to work?

If this can be done, then the webhelp can be used avoiding IFrames.

Or else, is there anyway to avoid generating outputs in IFrames?

If you look at the HTML in a topic, there is nothing behind the field and I don't think I have ever seen anyone use it. I believe it requires some home brewed code and a database behind it, so not what you are looking for. I couldn't find it described in the help either.

The only thing I can suggest is to see if this page on my site would be a solution. Zoomsearch 7 in RoboHelp The help would be accessed from a link in a topic to another page. Zoomsearch is what I use on my site so you can see it working there.
