    Hello there..

    I’m working right now on the Ajax search implementation.
    We want to replace the GP search with the Ajax search.

    Means:
    – Search Icon on Desktop to open the search instead of a search box and type to search.
    – Search icon on tablet and mobile and type to search.

    We followed this (https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/woocommerce-product-search-widget/page/2/) support topic and we was able to add the Ajax search to the Header.

    Current Settings:
    – Custom HTML Widget in the Header
    <span class="custom-search-item" title="Search"><a href="#"><span class="screen-reader-text">Search</span></a></span>

    – Add Code in GP Elements to hook in the Ajax search via shortcode
    <span class="custom-search-item" title="Search"><a href="#"><span class="screen-reader-text">Search</span>[wcas-search-form]</a></span>

    Settings here are:
    – Hook: inside_mobile_header
    – Execute Shortcode: ON
    – Execute PHP: OFF
    – Priotity: 10
    – Displayrule: Entire Site

    – Add jQuery via Plugin (Snippets) to add the function

    add_action( 'wp_footer', function () { ?>
    	<script>
    
    jQuery('.custom-search-item').on('click', function(e) {
        jQuery(this).toggleClass("close-search");
        jQuery('.dgwt-wcas-search-wrapp').toggleClass("visible");  
        e.preventDefault();
        });
    
    	</script>
    <?php } );

    – Insert some CSS to style

    .custom-search-item a:before {
        content: "\f002";
        font-family: GeneratePress;
        width: 1.28571429em;
        text-align: center;
        display: inline-block;
        margin-left: 10px;
    }
    
    .custom-search-item.close-search a:before {
        content: "\f00d";
    }
    
    @media (max-width: 768px) {
        #mobile-header>.inside-navigation {
            align-items: center;
        }
        .dgwt-wcas-search-wrapp {
            order: 5;
        }
        .custom-search-item {
            order: 3;
            padding-left: 20px;
            padding-right: 20px;
        }
        
        .dgwt-wcas-search-wrapp {
            max-height: 0;
            visibility: hidden;
            pointer-events: none;
        }
        .dgwt-wcas-search-wrapp.visible {
            max-height: 100%;
            visibility: visible;
            pointer-events: auto;
        } 
    }

    This is our current setup.. we followed the other topic but unfortunately it’s not working properly n our page. 🙁

    Hi there,

    Something like this might be better: https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/replace-gp-search/#post-1272331

    That way you can just filter your custom search into the search div and use our existing JS/CSS.

    Let me know 🙂

    Hi Tom,

    Beast! Nice.. this is exactly what i’m looking for!
    If we get this sh*it done, I’ll buy you a beer 🙂

    So i tried to implement the stuff.. it works 80%.. nice…

    Current Settings

    – Add function via Plugin (Snippets)

    add_filter( 'generate_navigation_search_output', function() {
        return sprintf(
            '<div class="navigation-search">%s</div>',
            do_shortcode( '[wcas-search-form]' )
        );
    } );

    – Add Code in GP Elements

        margin-right: auto;
    }

    On Desktop:
    – The Ajax Search is in a big whit box actually is ok. But the Ajax only take 50% of the space.
    – It’s not possible to klick on the Search icon and type. I have to click again into the search box to search
    – Next to the site logo on the left side, there is a search icon and a X.

    On Mobile / tablet:
    – If I click on the search icon, the search bar will open. But then I have to click again on the search bar. After that click the Ajax search will open and i have to click again to type. Is there a way that I only can click on the search icon and type?

    Thanks & Cheers!

    Is there a reason for the Element and all of the CSS? The standard toggle should work without all of the extra stuff.

    Let me know 🙂

    Hi Tom

    Fair question.. I just followed the topic which you mentoined. 🙂
    So for now I removed the element:

    <a href="#" class="custom-search-toggle">
        <svg viewBox="0 0 512 512" aria-hidden="true" role="img" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" width="1em" height="1em">

    The additional Search icon and X are gone. Cool!

    Also I like the position of the Search bar if I click on the search icon in the navigation. So for that I need some CSS. Maybe its to much CSS.

    But the search box still looks strange.. and start typing after a click on the seach icon is not possible. 🙁

    Adding this may help with the appearance:

    .navigation-search {
        background: transparent;
    }

    As for the focus issue, that’s a bit harder.. You could try jQuery since you’re already loading it:

    jQuery( '.search-item a' ).on( 'click', function() {
        jQuery( '.dgwt-wcas-search-input' ).focus();
    } );

    Hello Tom,

    Thanks! The Focus now works and its really cool.

    But I notices some UI issues when it somes to scrolling.

    When the Search Bar and the results are shown, we see no problems.
    But when we scroll up and down, the results box does not move very smooth.
    Also it overlaps the search bar sometimes. Here you can see what we exactly meaning 🙂

    https://ibb.co/6yxfPpp

    So is there a way the wen can fix this whit CSS or so?

    Currenty we only us this CSS here:

    .navigation-search {
        top: 100%;
    }
    
    .dgwt-wcas-search-wrapp {
    	max-width: inherit;
    }

    Cheers

    It’s hard to tell since the results close when developer tools are open. It seems like they may be using javascript to calculate the top position. It does actually seem to be working, it’s just a little laggy. I’m not sure if there’s a solution for that – you may need to check with them.

    Hi Tom,

    Yes.. but when the developer tools are open and you type in the search box with will open again.

    It’s working i a way yes.. but when I implement the search without replacing the GP Search its is much smoother and I have no display issues.

    #1362462

    Yea, I believe that’s due to how the plugin is calculating the position of the results. I’m not sure there’s a way around it, unfortunately. However, you can ask their developers if they have any ideas.

    Hi Tom, thanks! 🙂

    I just noticed that the focus not work as expected. Sometimes it works sometime not.
    Is this something from GP?

    add_action( 'wp_footer', function () { ?>
    	<script>
    
    jQuery( '.search-item a' ).on( 'click', function() {
        jQuery( '.dgwt-wcas-search-input' ).focus();
    } );
    
    	</script>

    Hmm, is it possible to give the custom search input a custom class? It would be great if we could give it the search-field class. Then, GP would focus to it automatically.

    #1374914

    Hi Tom

    Thanks for the info. Now I was able to add the “Search-field” class.

    add_filter('dgwt/wcas/form/html', function($html){
        return str_replace('class="dgwt-wcas-search-input"', 'class="dgwt-wcas-search-input search-field"', $html);
    });

    And I also remove your focus code before. Or do I need this?

    add_action( 'wp_footer', function () { ?>
    	<script>
    
    jQuery( '.search-item a' ).on( 'click', function() {
        jQuery( '.dgwt-wcas-search-input' ).focus();
    } );
    
    	</script>
    <?php } );

    Now the focus works! But only one little issue..

    If I open the search bar with the search icon, the icon stays there. Is there a way to hide the search icon when the search bar is open?

    Btw: The Ajax search plugin has her own way to replace the GP search: https://ajaxsearch.pro/docs/integrations/generatepress-theme/

    Cheers

    You can remove the javascript.

    To hide the close icon, you can do this:

    .search-item.active {
        opacity: 0;
    }
