Search Fields by DanRabbit Search Fields by DanRabbit
This is my first attempt at modular design. In this bit I've tried to assess the common functions of a search field and create a nice organized widget that will fit into any application and allow for a simple or expansive feature set.

What do you think about adding more light to the focused search box? I mean more like Mac OS X - [link]

You should probably stick to plain dropdowns for autocompletion. I do particularly like the inactive state.

Dan, not only am I a huge fan of both you and your work, but I am a huge fan of Quickly and PyGTK.
Furthermore, I kid you not, but today I was working on a sexy elementary-esque desktop dictionary, and was thinking: "Damn, why doesn't someone make a quidget for this!?"

So I am unimaginably enthused and excited that you have done this, and I am happy and very eager to work with this ASAP, and do any testing if you so need. I think that these sorts of widgets will take Ubuntu to totally new levels; GTK widgets are, I think, THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect in the potential for an app-based software community.

Again, I'm super excited and thankful you have started this project, search in particular, and can't wait to see what you do next.

Keep up the superb work!!

Hey, I'm glad you are super excited about it :D I would love to get a really solid set of quickly widgets going. I'm sure if we get something built that it wouldn't be a problem to merge it into the official quickly stuff. Just let me know when you have something and I'll make sure it gets to the right people :)

thanks for the help!

Wow, That looks pretty fantastic! Is this going to use zeitgesit to search?
I find i can't search for anything with zeitgeist seeing as when I search the majority of what i look for hasn't been looked at...
Anyway, Great mockup, the progress bar is a very good way to provide visual feedback
Keep up the amazing work

It's meant to be modular, so it would work with whatever the developer of a particular application tied it in to.

Well it certainly looks like I missed the point ;)

Very nice, and classy. ^.^ Hm, would you be able to use the scroll wheel to select different search options, instead of having to click twice?
