Yii2 Navbar Search Form

Is there any way to add the Bootstrap 3 Search text box to the navbar in the Yii2 bootstrap extension? It appears the full functionality of the Bootstrap navbar may not have been implemented in the extension.

You can add custom html code between NavBar begin() and end();

NavBar::begin([‘brandLabel’ => ‘NavBar Test’]);

echo Nav::widget([

'items' => [

    ['label' => 'Home', 'url' => ['/site/index']],

    ['label' => 'About', 'url' => ['/site/about']],



echo ‘Bootstrap 3 Search text box HTML’;


Thanks Rom that did it.
