Everyone is familiar with the search engines like Google, Altavista, etc. These search engines can search textual data and images which is useful to everyone. But, if a web designer has a rough idea regarding a web page that he wants to design and wants to see how these types of web pages look in real-time, he has no such application. This paper is the answer to the above hurdle in the way of the web designer. The proposed application, named Layout Designer, can search web pages of similar layout as drawn by the designer. In addition to that it also provides the facility to customize the page that the web designer likes. This application is actually, a Layout Search Engine and so named as Layout Designer. This paper presents the development of such an application in a detailed fashion. It actually portraits the implementation of user interface, searching techniques and algorithms along-with database usage and customization techniques.
