Kindly provide a solution to the following : 



I as a product manager require a custom search page for my salesforce CRM account. I don’t want to use the standard search functionality for this. Here is what I want to be done:


    1. On the VF page, create accustom “search” button and a checkbox with the name “limit to accounts I own”
    2. I should be able to enter and search on the following fields (these are the search criteria fields):
      1. Account name(standard field)
      2. Industry (standard field)
      3. Rating(standard field)
      4. Account  region(custom field)
      5. Account priority(custom filed)
      6. Account summary(text)
    3. The search functionality should be a logical OR of all the above combinations.
    4. The correct search results should be displayed ON THE SAME PAGE only after clicking the “submit” button.Display columns should have these fields: account name, industry, rating, account priority.
    5. If the checkbox “limit to accounts I Own” is checked before clicking on search the display only those accounts where the owner=current logged in user. 

I have developed the following code:


<apex:page Controller="AccountSearch">
<apex:form >
<apex:outputPanel layout="block">
<label for="checkbox"> Limit to Account I own: </label>
<input id="checkbox" type="checkbox"/>
<apex:commandButton action="{!search}" value="Search"/>
<apex:pageBlock mode="edit" id="block">
         <apex:pageBlockSection >
            <apex:pageBlockSectionItem >
               <apex:outputLabel for="searchText">Search Text</apex:outputLabel>
               <apex:panelGroup >
                  <apex:inputText id="searchText" value="{!searchText}"/>
                  <apex:commandButton value="Submit" action="{!search}" 
 <apex:actionStatus id="status" startText="requesting..."/>
<apex:pageBlockSection title="Results" id="results" columns="1">
           <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!results}" var="a"
              <apex:column value="{!a.Name}"/>
              <apex:column value="{!a.Industry}"/>
              <apex:column value="{!a.Rating}"/>
              <apex:column value="{!a.Account_Region__c}"/>
              <apex:column value="{!a.Account_Priority__c}"/>
              <apex:column value="{!a.Account_Summary__c}"/>
public class AccountSearch {
  String searchText;
   List<Account> results;
public String getSearchText() {
      return searchText;
   public void setSearchText(String s) {
      searchText = s;
   public List<Account> getResults() {
      return results;
    public PageReference search() {
    results = (List<Account>)[FIND :searchText RETURNING Account(Name, Industry, Rating, Account_Region__c, Account_Priority__c, Account_Summary__c)][0];  
        return null;
Please provide the necessary modifications
