I'd like to be able to use the search widget without a map. It seems to work, except the 'select-result' event never fires. Any ideas?

Is there also a bug where the search widget (which is associated with a view this time) but it is ignoring these properties when I set them to false? 

var searchWidget = new Search({
  container: "searchWidget",
  view: view,
  resultGraphicEnabled: false,
  popupOpenOnSelect: false,
  popupEnabled: false
});

It is always showing the resulting graphic and a popup. As a workaround, I'm calling view.popup.close() and view.graphics.removeAll() in the 'select-result' event

Yes that also looks like an issue that is fixed for the next release (version 4.5)

Marc,

   So you are attempting to use the search widget in your code and you do not have a view at all? When I added it to a sample that did have a view but the search widgets view was set to null I did not have any issue.

I want to essentially just geocode an address and get the XY coordinates for whatever the user selected. The widget displays without a view, but the 'select-result' event never fires. As a workaround, I'm just creating a basic view and hiding the DOM element
