Invoke Activity using physical Search button

 Hi All,

I was looking at Search Framework documentation and it looks pretty

I also was looking at Twitter and Facebook applications for Android
and I notice both applications handle search button different. When
user press search button, it will immediately display an Activity,
instead of the regular search box dialog.

I would like to start a Search activity in the same way as Twitter and
Facebook, since I would like to offer filter options.

Any ideas how this could be done?

 Override onSearchRequested() and do whatever you want, IIRC.
