Is there any way to get expandable search. Like you click on search icon and it expands into search bar.
Searchbar that shows it’s own page/search results and darkens the current page. Mostly all apps have this kind of searchbar.
e.g Facebook, Linkedin, Whatsapp, Apple Mail, Apple App store, Settings app… - When you click on searchbar in these apps, it shows search results differently in it’s own list.
As I mentioned, lot of apps have that kind of searchbar - Facebook, Linkedin, Whatsapp, Apple Mail, Apple App store, Settings app, Inbox by Gmail…
It’s difficult to explain but if you have any of above app, it will be easy to understand.
I have implemented a persistent search mostly following google design except the search is accessed via a search icon from homepage which pushes a search page. It stores and displays recent searches and highlights searchstring in text when searching.
Can upload a sample project if it would help anyone.
