Specify search source for a typeahead search widget (widget options schema), style a typeahead with CSS

several options

1) easy option - configure from the widget instance in designer:

[ html to embed the widget - optional

<div id="repissue-search" class="hidden-xs wrapper-md" ng-init="c.trackPage()"> <div class="wrapper-md"> <h1 class="font-thin m-b-lg sp-tagline-color" ng-bind="options.title"></h1> <h4 ng-if="options.short_description" class="m-b-lg sp-tagline-color" ng-bind="options.short_description"></h4> <div class="search-bar"> <sp-widget widget="data.typeAheadSearch"></sp-widget> </div> </div> </div>

server script:

data.typeAheadSearch = $sp.getWidget('typeahead-search', options.typeahead_search);


Now go to edit option schema from designer:

then go to the typeahead widget on the portal and click ctrl>right-click and select

this is where you can specify the search source by its sys id:

{title:'Search incidents', size: 'md', color: 'default', contextual_search_sources: 'd12dd5cadb8d6c10f04aad050596195c'}

2) with embedded widget - specify search source in server script:

<div> <widget id="typeahead-search" options=data.search_options></widget> </div>

Server script: sys id is the sys id of the search source, display value is its name

data.search_options = '{"contextual_search_sources": { "value": "d12dd5cadb8d6c10f04aad050596195c", "displayValue": "My Incidents" }}';

style the typeahead to add rounded edges and colors etc

.sp-tagline-color { color: $brand-primary; } #homepage-search > div > h1 { width: 600px; margin: 0 auto; } .search-bar { width: 600px; margin: 40px auto 0 auto; /* adding margin between search and title */ /* Customising the search bar */ input[name="q"] { border-top-left-radius:$search-border-radius; border-bottom-left-radius:$search-border-radius; color: $input-color !important; } span.input-group-btn { button.btn-default { border-top-right-radius:$search-border-radius; border-bottom-right-radius:$search-border-radius; border-left: none; color: $brand-success; } } }

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
