Is there a workaround of it?
I'm facing the same issue.
The goal is that another action than "suggestAction" of the suggestionbox should perform the search manually triggered (e.g. a button) and as a result of the request the suggestionbox should be displayed.
But until now I didn't managed to get it working. I tried using the "data" attribute of the suggestion box, but it won't be rendered.
Didn't anyone else had the same problem an got it working?
Thanks a lot,
thanks in advance.
I would like to do the same thing : trigger a suggestionBox when user click on a button.
If someone find how to do this, while waiting for the Feature Request...
