#327 closed defect (fixed)

search entry in docbrowser not really intuitive

in docbrowser, the "search" label is at the left, the entry is far right. and there's no button pre-selected (labeled "search" or whatever) that could hint the user what the entry is

Agree. not obvious nor sane.

should appear,

[Label][Combobox selector (DocProvider?)][textbox][button]

which I think was in my head at the beginning, yet never happened.

DocProviders? should be selectable via search widget also.

I have added a ToolTip? to both the Label and the Search entry to give a hint about what to do with the search.

Recommend docbrowser moves to a format w/ summary listbox as a left column and results tab to the right. Search textentry above summary listbox ala windows help browser.

Some of the Padre-Index branch stuff should make this less traumatic.
