I’m experimenting with making the MXNA search more useful, so I decided to borrow some ideas from Google and build MXNA Suggest. MXNA Suggest lets you search interactively by suggesting terms that other people have searched for in the past as you type. The terms MXNA Suggest returns are ordered by relevance, which is determined by the number of times people have searched for them. In addition to being a potentially useful search interface, it’s also an interesting research tool. It’s sort of a quick and even fun way to see what terms are most popular in the Macromedia community.
Anyway, feel free to view the source and swipe some code if you can use it. It isn’t documented, but it’s pretty clearly written, so it should be easy enough to follow. And if you find any bugs, post them here, and I’ll try to get them fixed. If this proves a useful feature, maybe eventually I’ll move it out of the "experimental" directory and integrate it with the main application.
