    I have found a template for the Search Box under the folder ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Search/SearchBox.ascx. Now, I would like to extend the template by adding few other controls like checkboxlist, dropdown etc., into the current sitefinity Search Box template. Kindly let me know how to do it? Whether is it possible to extend the Search Box template, and if so, kindly provide me some sample code.

    Please provide me some sample code, if there is other way around by creating custom class from the available Sitefinity class SearchBox.
