Post from one search box (on master page) to another search page's query and display result.

Hi, I am using the code for a search using index server from this page  I want to post to the search from a text box on another page.  E.g. I have a navigationg box at the top of my page, included in all my page which has a search box and a submit button.  I want, when a user types in their search term, for the query to be posted to the search page and the results shown in one motion like google for example.  The search offers a number of different search options such as all words, any words etc. I would be quite happy for it to be an all words search and then have an "advanced search" link for the other options.  I am sure other people would have come accross this problem before.  I have tried a couple of different ways.  With it seemed the result cant just be posted to another page although I could be wrong.  I am new to all this although I am frantically reading up on programming to try and stop sounding like such a lame ass on these forums!

 I have investigated a number of ways of doing this.  I think server.transfer or httpwebrequest.  However, although I might be able to post the info from a text box to another page's text box (e.g. the search page)  I need it to display the results.

Search query returns XML results. How do I get the results back to the page that submitted the query or a new page.
Hello,I have a search page with a text box and button. When I search for a keyword, my page sends parameters to a search appliance that returns XML results.

Multiple forms on one page, how do I post on to another page?
I have several submit buttons and text boxes, datagrids, etc. on a single page. I want one particular text box and submit button to POST to another page. Since there is only one form tag with postback, is this possible. I need POST instead of querystring because the string may be long (it's a search field) and the results are too large to fit on the same page. Can I take my text box value and submit that to another page from a page with numerous other postback actions on it? if(youTryToBeSmarter) { i.WillTryToBeNicer(); } You can do a couple of things: (1) Use a non-serv...
