Put this in you header (somewhere between <head> and </head>):

<script language="javascript">
function SearchRedirect()
{
    var objSearchTextBox = document.getElementById("searchTextBox");
    document.location.href = "searchresults.aspx?Keyword=" + objSearchTextBox.value;
}
</script>

and then modify you button like:

asp:ImageButton  ImageUrl="/Style Library/Aurelium/images/layout/header-search-btn.png" ID="srchImage" runat="server" title="Zoek" OnClientClick="SearchRedirect();return false;"></asp:ImageButton>

Hello, it works but I still have a problem.

The sharepoint search results page is in a specific folder
/search/results.aspx

I need that this code works from any place in the website and the code you sent me is to be placed on a masterpage

 document.location.href = "~/search/results.aspx?k=" + objSearchTextBox.value;


the problem is that the ~ token seems that doesnt work in javascript, can you please help me with  this.

Thank you

So use the full path :

document.location.href = "http://www.yourdomain.extension/path/to/search/results.aspx?k=" + objSearchTextBox.value;

Open in new window

Sorry for not returning until now.

Please change:

    document.location.href = "searchresults.aspx?Keyword=" + objSearchTextBox.value;

to:

    document.location.href = "/search/results.aspx?k=" + objSearchTextBox.value;

(provided that the full path is: "http://<hostname>/search/results.aspx?k=something")
