type:"search" not used

in safari on ipad2,{view:“text”, id:“text”,type:“search”} not used. can not display symbol on right.but in safari on window can display,why?thank you!

That depends on browser’s version.
Are you using ios4 or ios5 ?

on Ipad2,IOS Version is :4.3.5(8L1).why not display?

a) try to use {view:“input”, id:“text”,type:“search”}
b) you may consider updating to ios5 which updates browser and adds support for more native html5 input controls.
