Input that Graphic Style directly into the widget within the Text-Box Graphic Style area.

 

 

The Search Button

The Search button is customizable using Muse Style panels. To change the icon of the button use the Fill Panel > Image > Select an image file from your server. Use the States panel to customize the hover state of the button.
 
Note: Be sure to keep the Graphic Style of the Search button and the name found within the Search Bar section identical to ensure the button operates correctly.
