So I am trying to design a nice header. At first, I wanted to make an expendable search box but that is beyond my knowledge. But now I think a pop-up search box wouldn't be so bad. I know that there are people who hate pop-ups but this one seems justified.
And by pop-up search box I mean, when in the header you click the search icon it pops out a search box, that takes up the whole screen. You could press an X button at the top right to exit or maybe even click out of the search box to exit.
This would be implemented only for larger screens, on mobile it would be the usual menu search box.
Also what I think would be an advantage to this, is that you could set up a big Ajax search, with images and stuff. For reference, something like this - https://ajaxsearchpro.com/vertical-results-layout/ But a lot of tunning would be done.
Thanks for reading. The main question is, what do you think of this header search box implementation?
