Search Box

A search box or search field is a common GUI element used in computer programs, such as file managers or web browsers, and on web sites. A search box is usually a single-line text box with the dedicated function of accepting user input to be searched for in a database. Search boxes on web pages are usually used to allow users to enter a query to be submitted to a Web search engine server-side script, where an index database is queried for entries that contain one or more of the user's keywords.

Search boxes are commonly accompanied by a search button (sometimes indicated only by a magnifying glass symbol) to submit the search, although a search button may be omitted as the user may press the enter key to submit the search, or the search may be sent automatically to present the user with real-time results.

Famous quotes containing the words box and/or search:

    It all ended with the circuslike whump of a monstrous box on the ear with which I knocked down the traitress who rolled up in a ball where she had collapsed, her eyes glistening at me through her spread fingers—all in all quite flattered, I think. Automatically, I searched for something to throw at her, saw the china sugar bowl I had given her for Easter, took the thing under my arm and went out, slamming the door.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Still, I search in these woods and find nothing worse
    than myself, caught between the grapes and the thorns.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
