My master page has a Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.SearchBox control and it no longer works.

What's the alternative now?

Hello thelyrist,

Can you provide some more description about this issue "Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.SearchBox control and it no longer works"

I built my template to include a custom Search Box as the client didn't like the default look and feel.  I found the code in the forum but I can't seem to locate it anymore.

I have the following defined in my template.

<sitefinity:SearchBox id="searchBox" runat="server" UseSearchButton="true" ClientIDMode="Predictable" LayoutTemplatePath="~/App_Data/Sitefinity/WebsiteTemplates/clientSite/WidgetTemplates/SearchBox/search-box.ascx"></sitefinity:SearchBox>

It was working just fine in 4.0 but it stopped working since I upgraded to 4.1. 

Error 3 The type or namespace name 'SearchBox' does not exist in the namespace 'Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\wwwroot\clientSite\www\App_Data\Sitefinity\WebsiteTemplates\ClientSite\App_Master\ClientSite.Master.designer.cs 67 53 SitefinityWebApp

The code of the ACSX:
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="search-box.ascx.cs" Inherits="SitefinityWebApp.search_box" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="sitefinity" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" %>
  function goSearch()
    var searchBox = document.getElementById("searchBox_ctl00_ctl00_searchBox");
    if (searchBox != null)
      if (searchBox.value == '')
        alert('Please enter your search term.');
        window.location = '/search?indexCatalogue=site%2Dsearch&&wordsMode=0&searchQuery=' + searchBox.value;
<div id="applesearch">
  <div class="floatLeft">
    <span class="sbox_l"></span>
    <span class="sbox"><asp:TextBox ID="searchBox" runat="server" CssClass="sfsearchTxt" /></span>
    <span class="sbox_r" id="srch_clear"></span>
 <div class="floatRight">
  <asp:ImageButton ImageUrl="~/images/search-button.png" runat="server" OnClientClick="goSearch();return false;" />
  <asp:LinkButton id="searchButton" runat="server" Text="Search" OnClientClick="return false;" CssClass="sfsearchSubmit" Enabled="false" Visible="false"></asp:LinkButton>
 <div style="clear"> </div>

I had to do the hack above because the client wanted an image as the search button, and the searchbox templete uses a linkbutton.

 There are quite a few bugs that 4.1 sp2 might have fixed, but it am stuck with 4.0 as I can't get the code to compile in 4.1 as Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI no longer has the class "SearchBox".  Is it renamed or removed?

Due to a past deadline and some other bugs in the original 4.1 release, I decided not to upgrade.  Please kindly offer any suggestions / workaround as needed.  Thanks!

Hi Thelyrist,

Can you please try using the following namespace: Telerik.Sitefinity.Services.Search.Web.UI.Public and let us know if any problems persist?
