flash xml search example
*UPDATE * – URL now links to working copy
There’s an example of the flash based xml search that I plan to write a tutorial for over the weekend since I still don’t have internet. And as of now, it seems complete and I haven’t encountered any bugs yet…
So this is what the script has:
Linking (using deeplinking)
Search Word Highlighting
Search result trimming (50 characters on either side of the word)
Word completion during trimming (If at 50 characters the trimming would cut a word in half it will include the whole word)
Searches on button press and on pressing enter.
Shows multiple results
Handles special characters
Handles Like (searching kit will return KITty)
Clears results on new search.
Displays message when term isn’t found
Searches must be more than 3 characters long
I think that covers the extent on it’s details. I have no clue how long it will be on that server so I am working on just getting some free server space for examples. I will be back with code and tutorials ^_^
