This is not currenty implemented but there are workarounds.

The easiest is to hide the button with CSS. Add to the file  
pmwiki/pub/css/local.css or Group.css, or Group.Page.css something like this:

  .searchbutton {display: none;}

This will hide all buttons of any (:searchbox:) directive, and also the  
button of the search form in the default skin, possibly other skins too.

If you only want to hide the button on a particular searchbox, use this  
  .nobtn .searchbutton {display: none;}

then in the wiki page, use

If you don't want to use CSS, you can always create a search form with the  
PmWiki forms markup, see http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Forms , or even  
redefine the (:searchbox:) markup to use your own functions.
