for search input you have a couple options. you could go with html5, but it only works in modern browsers (ie10+) and the appearance will be dictated by the browser.
<input id="mysearch" type="search" />

or, you write it with css and use a background image of a magnifying glass inside the input.

for the exlamation marks, that's called validation, and you can do it clientside via javascript. if you're using jquery, then the validate plugin is the most ubiquitous. the appearance of erroneous fields (incldung the !) is set via css.

if you. eed a more specific solution, please post a link to your page

there are plenty of examples on the web. you need to find something that is close to what you want to acheive, create a page or a jsfiddle, and share the link. as the asker of the question it is your responsibility to do the leg work.

at an absolute minimum, you need to provide a page with input fields, and a reference to jquery, as well as the icons you would like to use fir the search field and the error states. jsfiddle.com makes this very easy.

The zoom image is just a simple image placed after your input box - it's nothing special
And Kyle has already told you about the jquery validations for indicating a field is wrong.

Gary,
I am looking for coding.. thought the zoom is the image thing. i am unable to figure out how to code the background image to work as search query when clicked.

validation is cool too but if i see the code of an existing one or plugin perhaps i can use it on the site

i am unable to post the link as its for personal customer where i am working on design and try to get in coding done.it may take some time to understand once i know how .

appreciate your input
