My company's directory search is in the upper right hand portion of our home page. I'd like to be able to create a gadget that would simply show that section of the company site without writing code to build a gadget. (Don't abuse me, this is WebApps, not SO; it's okay to be programming useless here.)

It would let me search the site from my iGoogle page, rather than loading the home page first.

I thought there would be a gadget that did this, by letting you designate a URL in the settings, and then either somehow letting you "snag" a region, or perhaps enter the pixel locations to define the box, but can't find anything.

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

There is not going to be an easy way to do this without it being a programming activity to accomplish it. The "most clean" way that I have found to do this is to actually create a gadget that resembles the form and does the post to the proper location.
