I am trying to modify the Discovery Electronics reference application so it does not do a full page refresh when an item of the guided navigation is clicked or when a search is submitted.
I noticed ajax is implemented in the searchbox control to retreive suggestions and was wondering if the same functionality could be applied to the onlick events of the refiners.
Any additional information/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
It is certainly possible and pretty independent of Endeca. Your controller just needs to respond to your AJAX requests which you'll then use to update the DOM. It's important to consider though that when a user clicks on Guided Navigation or performs a search, many components on the page may need to be updated. For example, if a user searches, all of the following will change: Guided Navigation, Breadcrumbs, "Did you mean?", Search Results, Merchandising Rules, Pagination, and maybe Dimension Search results.
