  2. On your search page, hover over the search box component until it is selected.

  3. In the top-right corner of the selected search box, select the Edit icon (interfaceeditor-editicon).

  4. Only when using version 1.2.8 or more recent of the Interface Editor (see Identifying Your Interface Editor Version), on the left of the Searchbox Options panel, select the Search As You Type icon (interfaceeditor-searchasyoutypeicon).

  5. Ensure the Enable search as you type checkbox is checked.

  6. At the bottom of the Search As You Type or Searchbox Options panel, select Apply or Save.

  7. After having customized your options, select Save. Your search box now uses Search As You Type.
