Is there a way to display search criteria with the results of a custom search? The default behavior of the search filter is to return the search fields to their empty state. I would like to have the search parameters used to filter records displayed in the Before Content area of my custom search. I want the user to know which criteria were used to generate the list of records. Having the search form retain the criteria would be useful or a simple list of the fields used to generate the results. Any ideas?

I use browser storage to save search criteria between refreshes. You can see how it works here after you toggle it on:

Thanks, Victor. I love the toggle. Did you achieve this using custom code?

Yes. It’s custom code. I’ll post the code next week.
