Lotus Note Search in view

Under Domino r5 I'm trying to setup a form that has an embeded view to display in a browser. No problem so far. What I'm having trouble with is adding the search capability. I want to add a search field with a search button on the form above the embeded view. When the user types into the field the words to search on, and pressing the button the page will display the results on in the same view format.

- I have already create a viewtemplate and a searchtemplate to match.
- I add some pass-thru html to include a form and input field and a submit button. Here is a snipit:

<TR VALIGN=top><TD WIDTH="80%" COLSPAN=2><IMG SRC="/download.nsf/4b1cbf1bfffeee3885256525004b11c9/$Body/0.3D16?OpenElement&FieldElemFormat=gif" WIDTH=10 HEIGHT=10><FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/download.nsf/$$SearchTemplate+for+Download+File+2?SearchView">
<font size =-1>

<table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2 border=0 noshade>
<tr><td align=left valign=center><font face="Sans-Serif" size =-1>
       Search for
</td><td align=left valign=top colspan=2><font face="Sans-Serif" size =-1>
      <input name="Query" size = 45 VALUE="">
      <input type="submit" value = "Search">
</td></tr>

<!--spacer--><tr ><td valign="center"><img src="/icons/sv_dot.gif" border=0 align ="center" height=10></td></tr>

</table>


<!--spacer--><tr ><td valign="center"><img src="/icons/sv_dot.gif" border=0 align ="center" height=10></td></tr>

<tr ><td valign="center" BGCOLOR="#C0C0C0" colspan=2>
<img src="/icons/sv_dot.gif" border=0 height=2></td></tr></table>

<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="%%PostCharset" VALUE="ISO-8859-1">
</FORM>

This was basically cut from the default view search form.

The problem is that every time I submit the search I get an error and the URL shows: http://host/download.nsf/$$ViewTemplate+for+Download+File+2?OpenForm&Seq=1

I'm not sure why I get the Seq=1, but if you can tell me what my problem is and how to fix it or have an even better solution that will allow me to include search functionality within my form and return results within my form please tell me.

You could put this HTML on the form where you want the search bar to be:

<form method=\"post\" action=\"./WebSearch?SearchView\"><input name=\"Query\" value=\"\" size=30 maxlength=40><input type=\"button\" Value=\"Search\" onClick=\"noEntry()\"> <script language=\"JavaScript\"> function noEntry() { if (document.forms[0].Query.value.length<1) { return false; } else { document.forms[0].submit(); } } </script>

I not sure what anders is trying to say but snocross, your code gives me the same problem as i described above. Creating the search form thru html is not the problem. If I add your code to my page as pass thru html I still get the "The page cannot be found...." and the url shows:

http://host/download.nsf/$$ViewTemplate+for+Download+File+2?OpenForm&Seq=1

There's a detailed description available on notes.net of how to combine a search and a view in a form.
Just go to www.notes.net, go to Iris Today and look up the article called "Combining forms and views for friendlier Web applications (Part 1)"

It explains how to add html or a calculated field to put a search on top of the view and then have the results look the same way.
