Display search box


Posted by MES5464 - Apr 11 ’14 at 12:55

This post is off topic but since I have gotten better advice here for SharePoint questions than any where else I have tried, I thought I would ask this forum.

I have a list view web part on a web part page. In the options of the web part I get the option to "Display search box". However when I check the option to "Display search box" the search box only comes on until I click the "Stop Editing" button. Then the search box disappears again.

Anyone know why that is and how I can permanently turn on the "Display search box" option for my web part pages?

    Please, check whether you have JS-errors on the page. I've just tested the case and it's working properly for me.

    The only error I get is this:


    event.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead. mquery.js?rev=VYAJYBo5H8I3gVSL3MzD6A%3D%3D:1
