search screen isnt working

Does anyone know how I might setup up a search screen? It doesn't seem to work when I press the search button.

Re: search screen isnt working

Can you share some more detail about the issue?

When the user presses the Search button you will get an isFullResult event. That's when you should invoke your search logic. There's also an isPartialResult event raised each time the user types a new letter. That can be useful for presenting them with suggested searches.

Sorry it took me so long to reply.

So the search screen doesn't handle the search logic? I have to handle the query on a website and send the result to the roku?

Yes, which is not to say you couldn't handle the search on the device yourself, but would be much more practical to pass the query string to your server and then return the results to the device.
