DataAssist Search tools

Hi there -

I've got DataAssist 2 already downloaded and I've had a lot of good experiences using Web Assist products. However, as a web designer always looking for new and innovative ideas I have recently seen some search "code" that is leaps ahead and something I want to implement in my next design.

The way I remember, searching on DataAssist completely removes previous search parameters - as in if you use a drop down menu the menu resets itself to "Select X" and gives you no real clue as to your search criteria. Is this still correct?

The search forms that are really impressing me are ones that use "text" and not menus that can be removed instantly to reset the search results. So for instance like this:-


United Kingdom [REMOVE]
Europe [REMOVE]

Clicking on the above link allows other locations to be selected (either by going to another page or by a pop up box - lightbox? or by a revealing sliding panel) - but the main point is the actual select parameters are visible and removable by the user.


As you can see the above example it is obvious that this is a much smarter, cleaner and may I say, more fun to use that the drop down menu that resets itself on the WebAssist Search.

I've added a screenshot of the Guardian Newspaper's job section - see how all the parameters are in the grey 'Expand' box and can be removed instantly that updates the search results on the same page.

Anyway anybody know if there's the option of this, it is coming in a new upgrade etc etc.

Many thanks
