Currently, I have a simple GridView search setup on a page within my Sharepoint site. It's very basic (code is attached).

What I need to do is have a small web part on the home page with a small search field and a search button that displays the results on the existing search page. I'm not sure what the easiest way to accomplish this is since my current search does not use query strings.

I'm up for any recommendations. Thanks.
