google search field

I am making a simple iOS web browser within my app and I think I figured out everything I need to do except one. The URL field works fine but how do I create a google search field?

If the user just wants to input a search term into the search field, how can I search for terms using google's search engine?

Hi Coffee1633.

I have attached a stack that allows you to conduct a google search from a native text field.

Once the search term has been entered, a google search URL is generated and this is set to the mobGui created browser control.

All relevant code of this stack in the the "search" button.

I hope this gives you some leads

Kind Regards,

I have been away for a while and I see this update to my original post. Thank you. This was a great help.

Hi Coffee,

I don't mean to hijack your thread but there is apparently no way to send you a private message - so I need to result to a public message like this.

I also live in Japan, would you be up for meeting and perhaps speaking about livecode some?
I'm new to this as well and it'd be neat to work with someone that also is using it. Anyway, just throwing that out there ;).
