I'm trying to make a simple page that contains a google search form. The results of the search needed to be shown in an iframe that is on the same page. I've managed to write the search form but I can't make the results appear in the iframe. Whenever i click search it just opens the google search page.
What do i miss here?

	<title>My Searhpage</title>
	<h1 align="center">Google Search</h1>
	<form action="http://www.google.com/search" method="get" enctype="text">
		<input type="text" name="q">
		<input type="submit" value="Search">
	<iframe src="https://www.google.com/search?q=" width="800" height="600">

Please help.
Thanks in advance =)

when i used ur code, google says, that it cannot load the results page in a frame.

Even I tried to add iframe name and use form target to that name.

You can directly login to google and use their readymade codes for your requirement.

The trick is to do it myself. i'm in a learning process, wanted to get more experienced opinion and help... but thanks anyway =)

Got it, thanks! Anyway, I figured it out with "target" and "name" attributes.

Did it work?

No. As sufyan2011 said, google don't allow their result pages be displayed in iframes as a security precaution.
