Activating or Deactivating the Coveo .NET Search Box in a SharePoint Site

Once you installed the Coveo .NET search box on a SharePoint server (see Installing the Coveo Web Service, Search Box, and Search Interface into SharePoint), you can activate/deactivate the Coveo .NET search box independently for each SharePoint site.

Note: SharePoint 2016/2013/2010/2007 offers a mechanism, called DelegateControl that allows administrators to replace controls displayed in SharePoint pages. The Microsoft search box and scope selector are in the same DelegateControl called SmallSearchInputBox. The Coveo installer deploys a feature called CoveoSearchBox to replace the Microsoft controls in the SmallSearchInputBox.

    Note: You can activate the Coveo Search Box feature on any of the four SharePoint levels (Farm, WebApp, SiteCollection, and Site). Ensure to activate the Coveo search box everywhere you want it to replace the Microsoft default search boxes.
