Nightingale allows search engines to be handled by internal code instead of sending a request to a webserver. In order to catch the query to be handled with a sbSearchEngine, the component needs to be regeistered.

The service it needs to be registered at is named ngIInternalSearchEnginesService.

Note: The engine name “internal” is reserved for the library search.


var internalSearchService = Cc[";1"].getService(Ci.ngIInternalSearchEnginesService);
internalSearchService.registerInternalSearchEngine("Song Search","song-search-engine", true);

This registers the component with the contractID song-search-engine as handler for the engine named “Song Search” and has the liveSearch feature.
