The issue you're running into is trying to display data in find mode, which isn't quite possible.
What you COULD do, is creatively hide a static image on your layout, and only display it while in find mode. conditional formatting "masking" is a pretty easy technique, and it also allows you to "layer" multiple images and masks so different things appear (IE unchecked icon and checked icon) depending on calculated conditions.
I've uploaded a simple sample to get you started, see if that gets you started in the right direction.

Thanks Mike, this is precisely the solution I was looking for!
