FixFlow and Gemini skins use such a searchbox.
It is implemented via a modified SearchBox function and modified
markup for (:searchbox:).
It is in its own php script searchbox2.php, which you find in the
skins zip file. Just copy that file and include it for the Groups or
Pages you need it.
It uses onfocus and onblur events.
You should see it working on pmwiki.org on the Fixflow and Gemini
skins page.

Best regards,
