Search Control – fulltextSearchBox

🚧

VTEX has two search options - VTEX search and VTEX Intelligent Search. This article refers to the VTEX search. To learn more about the VTEX Intelligent Search application, see this track.

The <vtex.cmc:fullTextSearchBox /> control is responsible for generating the search box. Besides the search filed, the control renders a combo for restricting a search in one department. Below we have an example of the control with no application of CSS:

Search is a functionality that must be available on all the pages of a store. That is why it is suggested inserting the control inside a subtemplate. The search control is used within the subtemplate of the store header.

HTML rendered by the control

<fieldset class="busca">
  <legend>Buscar no site</legend>
  <label>Buscar</label>
  <select id="ftDept4aceafb578de4c7caf31e06bcc8d45b9">
    <option value="">Todo o site</option>
    <option value="1000000">Integracao</option>
    <option value="1">Eletrodomésticos</option>
    <option value="3">Moda</option>
  </select>
  <input type="hidden" id=ftIdx4aceafb578de4c7caf31e06bcc8d45b9 value="" />
  <input id="ftBox4aceafb578de4c7caf31e06bcc8d45b9" class="fulltext-search-box" type="text" size="20" accesskey="b" />
  <input id="ftBtn4aceafb578de4c7caf31e06bcc8d45b9" type="button" value="Buscar" class="btn-buscar" />
</fieldset>

The autocomplete functionality is already provided for in this control, and it is only necessary to customize its CSS. Autocomplete is activated as soon as a client inputs three characters in the search field. Below is the html generated by the autocomplete:

<ul class="ui-autocomplete ui-menu ui-widget ui-widget-content ui-corner-all" role="listbox" aria-activedescendant="ui-active-menuitem" style="z-index: 10; top: -3334px; left: 667.5px; display: none; position: relative; width: 507px;">
