Before you configure Instant Search settings in a viewer, you should configure Instant Search in the site.
The Instant Search page allows you to configure Instant Search settings for a viewer. In general, you should not need to change these settings—the default values have been adjusted to work for the speed people usually type, the amount of information people can realistically work with, and so on. The only setting you might want to change is Maximum Results, which limits the number of search results that are shown.
You can navigate between search hints by pressing the up-arrow and down-arrow keys on the keyboard.
To open an HTML5 Viewer's Instant Search page in Manager:
In the side panel, click Instant Search.
The Instant Search page has the following settings:
Search Hints: When this checkbox is selected, the viewer suggests search terms to the user. The user can click a hint to search for the term given in that hint. By default, the Search Hints checkbox is selected.
When the Search Hints checkbox is cleared, the viewer does not display search hints.
Give Precedence to Nearby Results: To rank search results by how close they are to the center of the current map and relevance to search terms, select this checkbox. To rank search results only by relevance to search terms, clear the checkbox. By default, the checkbox is selected.
Autocomplete Delay (ms): The number of milliseconds to wait after the user stops typing before search hints are displayed.
Minimum Prefix length: The number of characters the user must type before search hints are displayed.
Maximum Search Hints: The maximum number of search hints to display.
Maximum Results: The maximum number of search results to show.
