Coveo Sitecore search box with categorised results list

Could I have some help with producing a custom global search box that auto queries a list of search results as I type, which contains links to content pages (rather than a redirect to the search page).

Looking for something similar to the android developer site (http://developer.android.com). If I start to type “android” I get a results list initially, then separate results boxes appear which are also broken down by a category e.g “distribute”, “design”, “guides" etc.

Getting this to work in a single box would be great in the first instance.

Thanks!

To achieve this behavior in a single list, you can use the OmniBoxResultList component of the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework.

If you are using Coveo for Sitecore, this component is configurable from the Sitecore Page/Experience Editor from the June 2015 (3.0.1055) release of Coveo for Sitecore. If you use an older version, it can be added and configured manually as explained in this other question: https://answers.coveo.com/questions/2558/similar-feature-to-mondosearch-searchnames
