Web Part property of type "Managed Metadata"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I want to build a custom web part where the user filters the results by selecting a term from a managed metadata property. I want this property to appear in that "Edit Web Part" property panel.

I know if I want to expose a simple string property, I just add the following attributes:




WebDescription("Select the category to filter your results.")]

public string Filter{





How do you do the same thing...but with a managed metadata datatype?

(Not to confuse the question...but the managed metadata datatype I want to show is defined as a Site Column. How can I expose that to a web part property?)


Any help would be appreciated.

People Search Results - Where do property/headings in the core results web part come from?

Hi there, I'm hoping this will be a nice simple thing to fix! We're running SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, using the Enterprise Search. In my User Profiles Service Application, I changed the display name of one of the User Properties. It it the SPS-Responsibility property. The out of the box display name is Ask Me About. The only issue is that in the people search results, the SPS-Responsibilty display name still shows as Ask Me About, not my new display name. This link shows this in a screenshot  I've tried various things such as resetting the index, running full crawls again etc. Could anyone let me know where this text is coming from? Thanks! Al
