I have a simple search form that I would like to submit a status dynamically, is there any way to do this, right now I am using javascript to submit the form and depending on what status options are toggled i would like to limit the status fields it searches.

If I cannot change the available status's on submission, can I restrict the status on the results page something like this?

{exp:search:search_results status="closed|draft"} 

I can always use the template to not display status's on the results page, but I would prefer not to loop over 10 status's for every result.

The docs don't indicate you can set status from the search form but you can set status on the search results page with the status="draft|reviewed|published" parameter .

You might also consider these two addons:

Super Search OR Low Search which both give you more advanced search capabilities.
