We are pleased to announce the newest member in the AJAX Search API family - the Patent Search API. This API uses the Google Patent Search service and gives you the ability to search over 7 million patents.
Using the API is easy. First load the API into your page using the AJAX API Loader
Now schedule your startup code to run once the DOM is ready. This is easy to do by using the
google.setOnLoadCallback() method. This will call the function you specified once the DOM is ready.
var searchControl = new GSearchControl();
var ps = new GpatentSearch()
By default the API returns a mix of filed as well as issued patents in the result set. However you can restrict the API to return just filed or just issued patents for your search results. Say you want to see only issued patents in your search results, then you would do the following:
// order by date, newest first
// order by date, oldest first
