I'm in the processing of moving our Google map v2 to ESRI's ArcGIS javascript api - prototype here.

I've been able to successfully reproduce all of the Google map features with one exception. Google maps has a search bar on top of the map (see it on our current map here) that searches google maps so that you can, for example, type in a city and it will show you search results. I'd like to do something like this with my prototype by querying or identifying on Bing maps (I'm using roads and aerial photography as basemaps). I haven't seen any documentation on how to do queries and identifies with Bing via the ESRI ArcGIS api so far in searching and don't see any conversations on this in this forum.

Is this possible, and if so where do I start? In my prototype, I'm currently doing an identify on my map service so I'm familiar with that code and process. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
