Search a table, allow Display Form of selected item in table

Hello,

 

I am trying to have a data table that lists publications and a Display Form that displays more detailed information when a user selects an item from the data table. However, I also want the data table to be searchable, so you can limit the data table to specified items. I can easily create a searchable table using Collections. However, I can't use a Display Form with collections. 

 

How can I return search results from a data table without using collections, so that I can use the Display Form to show detailed information about the search results? It seems very odd to me that I can't Display from a Collection, and I can't update a data table to show search results. Please help!

Nevermind, I have solved my problem by making the Display Form's datasource the data table, but using the selected item of the Collection as the Display Form's Item.
