Hey, folks,

I wonder is there a way that we could decorate the generic Search function to apply search onto ecommerce module.
For instance, could search by Category, Artist, and even additonal fields that developer cutomized in their product.php.
Any suggestions or ideas for achieving that?!
Thanks in advanced.

I'm wondering that too.
I want to search the product InternalItemID (productcode)

SS 2.3.4
mysite > page.php

* Site search form
function SearchForm() {
$searchText = isset($_REQUEST['Search']) ? $_REQUEST['Search'] : 'Search';
$fields = new FieldSet(
new TextField("Search", "", $searchText)
$actions = new FieldSet(
new FormAction('results', 'Search')

return new SearchForm($this, "SearchForm", $fields, $actions);

* Process and render search results
function results($data, $form){
$data = array(
'Results' => $form->getResults(),
'Query' => $form->getSearchQuery(),
'Title' => 'Search Results'

return $this->customise($data)->renderWith(array('Page_results', 'Page'));
