Hi there,

just wondered if somebody can give me a hint as to how i can control the form xhtml output, for example for hte search form.
I would like to use an <input ... element of hte type="image" do i can customise the search form.

i followed the tutorial here http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorial:4-site-search

however i can't seem to find anywhere how to control form output ... Thanks.

Hi,

If you want to use an image type submit button, you'll need to find the line in Page_Controller where it creates a new 'FormAction' and replace it by an ImageFormAction.

You can find the docs for ImageFormAction here: http://api.silverstripe.com/forms/actions/ImageFormAction.html

Hope this was helpful.
