Show search results in portal

Post

I've been searching for different techniques to use a portal within a layout to show search results.  I found this technique: http://www.filemakermagazine.com/videos/portal-results-showing-search-results-in-a-portal-and-more.html but it's from 2004, so I wasn't sure if there is an easier solution now.  Say the user searches a field for a certain state, I'd like the layout to show the search results within a portal sort of window on the side while also being able to access the record in a single form view.  When you click a record from the portal/search results, the main record is updated but the portal continues to show the search results, allowing the user quick access to all of the records.

 

Thanks for any insight.
