Hi John -

I am completely blown away with your search extension. I can't wait to try my hands on it. The only question thing that's preventing me to start trying is because of the below issue :

I am trying to implement multiple search in a grid where I have numeric and date fields which will use either equal, greater than, less than, greater than or between operators based on user inputs.

To explain more let's say there are two columns: A (Date) B (Numeric). The user at one point can send equal to for A and between for B and vice versa. I am unable to figure out how do i handle such scenario. Could you help me in this? I appreciate what you are contributing to our community. Awesome Job

Thanks, Partha

Hi Partha,

Apologies it has taken this long to get back to you. You can indeed address the issue you described above by combining search actions. Your final code might look something like

var results = data.Search(x => x.ColumnA).EqualTo(inputA)
                  .Search(x => x.ColumnB).Between(inputB, inputC);

From here you can apply some custom logic around what combination of search you build based on the user input.
For more information please take a look at the SearchExtensions help pages

First, thanks for your comment system post.

I read it with great interest. I would like to study the Blog project of which the comment system is a part. Is there url where I can find your MVC Blog engine?

Thanks again and all the best.

Hi @Ted,

Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. Unfortunately the blog engine I have built is currently in a private repository and not something I currently plan to make public.

Regards John
