I need to add custom search box in SharePoint Foundation 2010. I have to use my own customized search box with nearly 5 to 10 filter options. I heard that search box webpart can't be used in SharePoint Foundation 2010. So i need any alternative for that..

how did you use your own customized search box? Is it just a search web part from server or something you created through visual studio? – David Lozzi Feb 27 '12 at 15:22

You can replace the default searchbox by registering a delegate control on the SmallSearchInputBox.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Elements xmlns="">
  ControlAssembly="Suren.Assemby, etcetc">
  <Property Name="SurensProp">someValue</Property>
