Created attachment 203924
Basic config+source example including generated output on Windows

I am successfully generating Doxygen HTML output with Doxygen on Windows 7 for a collection of C header files.

I've requested a local search facility via the following settings


and the HTML does display a search box when rendered. The doxygen logs do not contain any errors, and include the line

Generating search indices...

However, when displayed in a browser (IE, FF) the search functionality does not work. Examination of the Javascript code in search/search.js reveals the following code

var indexSectionsWithContent =

which causes a JS error when text is entered in the search box, and the search directory does not contain any .html index files which the code appears to expect.

Confirmed. The main problem was that the function was only part of group (due to SHOW_FILES=NO) and was not indexed in this case. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.0. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.
