Semantic UI is an open-source framework that uses CSS and jQuery to build great user interfaces. It is the same as a bootstrap for use and has great different elements to use to make your website look more amazing. It uses a class to add CSS to the elements.

The search bar allows us to search for content on a website. It is an essential part of a website, which increases the ease of finding the desired item. Semantic UI provides us with a styled search bar. Let’s have a look at Semantic UI Search Types.

Semantic UI Search Types:

  • Standard: A Standard Semantic UI Search that can be used to search for content on a webpage.
  • Category: A Categorical search can be used to search for ordered categorical content from a remote source.
  • Local Search: A Local Search searches for data in a local place such as local storage, process storage, etc.
  • Local Categorical Search: A Local Categorical Search searches for ordered categorical data in a local place such as local storage, process storage, etc.

Semantic UI Search Class:

  • search: This class is used to create a search bar.

Syntax:

<div class="ui search">
  <div class="ui icon input">
    <input class="prompt" type="text" placeholder="...">
    <i class="search icon"></i>
  </div>
  <div class="results"></div>
</div>
