For Windows and Mac clients, you can define an Internet search engine for use with Open Mobile. If enabled, users will be able to perform Internet searches directly in Open Mobile. To enable search, select it in the Open Mobile Portal. Then, upload a search file, which is an HTML file formatted as follows:

  • The file must be self-contained, requiring no additional resources uploaded, but may reference external or internet resources. It should not refer to itself, as the upload process may change the filename.
  • Maximum size of the search window in Open Mobile is 319 pixels wide by 125 pixels high.
  • Specify html { overflow: auto } in the CSS line to prevent the vertical scrollbar from showing.
  • Avoid the use of any scripts, if possible.

An example search file is shown below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

  <meta name="description" content="" />
  <meta name="keywords" content="" />
  <style type="text/css">
