isearch-forward is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `isearch'.
It is bound to C-s, <menu-bar> <edit> <search> <i-search> <isearch-forward>.
(isearch-forward &optional REGEXP-P NO-RECURSIVE-EDIT)

Do incremental search forward.
With a prefix argument, do an incremental regular expression search instead.

As you type characters, they add to the search string and are found.
The following non-printing keys are bound in `isearch-mode-map'.

Type DEL to cancel characters from end of search string.
Type RET to exit, leaving point at location found.

The above keys, bound in `isearch-mode-map', are often controlled by
 options; do M-x apropos on search-.* to find them.
Other control and meta characters terminate the search
 and are then executed normally (depending on `search-exit-option').
Likewise for function keys and mouse button events.


So the answer is obvious:  add your stuff to isearch-mode-map.
