hi shane,

this is the entire code u need to run google Custom Search  that uses (AJAX Search API)
the result is stored in <div id="results_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e">
even if I put this div in a table it still float!


<form action="" id="searchbox_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e" onsubmit="return false;">

  <div>

    <input type="text" name="q" size="40"/>

    <input type="submit" value="Search"/>

  </div>

</form>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/coop/cse/brand?form=searchbox_014225229805397440211%3A2nf7dwv2h4e&lang=en"></script>
 

<div id="results_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e" style="display:none">

  <div class="cse-closeResults"> 

    <a>&times; Close</a>

  </div>

  <div class="cse-resultsContainer"></div>

</div>
 

<style type="text/css">

@import url(http://www.google.com/cse/api/overlay.css);

</style>
 

<script src="http://www.google.com/uds/api?file=uds.js&v=1.0&key=ABQIAAAAtxM1lWeZiDd1zIcRffMrthQtyEiWRX5NtO9WcwCf_PcxrQYPQBQvGKuOH_Zu-yn_FSgyhelqhIoHIQ&hl=en" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="http://www.google.com/cse/api/overlay.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

function OnLoad() {

  new CSEOverlay("014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e",

                 document.getElementById("searchbox_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e"),

                 document.getElementById("results_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e"));

}

GSearch.setOnLoadCallback(OnLoad);

</script>

I'd suggest makign a copy of this at www.yourdomain.com/css/overlay.css

You can then edit it now.

Download a firefox plug in called Firebug, it lets you inspect elements. Make the search and get the box that floats in your browser, then hit F12 to launch firebug. Click on Inspect element on the left of the firebug window.

You will now see that the elements in the main window go a blue colour when you highlight them. find the element that is floating and left click.

in the firebug panel you will now see the code and on the right its css. Play around with the css to make the desired effect. When you have the panel how you want. edit your local copy of overlay.css

Hope this helps. let us know.
