Search bar linked to list view - no results until search term

  Asked By: Celia    Date: Jun 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1797

Wonder if someone could help me. I am running SPS 2003. I have a
search bar (just some javascript code in a CEWP) that I have linked to
a list view which is full of questions (and answers) regarding my
organisation. Having linked the 2 in FrontPage they work well, ie.
when someone enters a search term and clicks Go it returns all List
items containing the term.

However, when people first get to my page containing the web parts the
list view is empty, which makes sense and nothing have been entered in
the search, but it would be much better if when they first arrived
there was a full list of the questions in the view which they could
then reduce if necessary with the search. Does anyone know of an
ingenious way to make this happen?

When the page loads, can you simulate a search  using JavaScript?
