keyword search - anyone got code or know where I can find it, tips ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I need to search some records for one or more keywords ( user entered) and then display them in order of matching i.e. at the top all 3 keywords, at the bottom, just one keyword found.

Before I do this.... has anyone done it before ?

I was going to go through each sql record and search for the words, presume that best way ?

Are You in the Know?: Find Out What's New with Code Access Security in the .NET Framework 2.0


Unlike role-based security measures, code access security is not based on user identity. Instead, it is based on the identity of the code that is running, including information such as where the code came from. Here Mike Downen discusses the role of code access security (CAS) in .NET and outlines some key new features and changes in CAS for the .NET Framework 2.0.

Code Name WinFS: Revolutionary File Storage System Lets Users Search and Manage Files Based on Conte


One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

Review It: Expert Tips for Finding Security Defects in Your Code


Reviewing code for security defects is a key ingredient in the software creation process, ranking alongside planning, design, and testing. Here the author reflects over his years of code security reviews to identify patterns and best practices that all developers can follow when tracking down potential security loopholes. The process begins by examining the environment the code runs in, considering the roles of the users who will run it, and studying the history of any security issues the code may have had. After gaining an understanding of these background issues, specific vulnerabilities can be hunted down, including SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting, and buffer overruns. In addition, certain red flags, such as variable names like "password", "secret," and other obvious but common security blunders, can be searched for and remedied.

Security Tips: Defend Your Code with Top Ten Security Tips Every Developer Must Know


There are many ways to get into trouble when it comes to security. You can trust all code that runs on your network, give any user access to important files, and never bother to check that code on your machine has not changed. You can run without virus protection software, not build security into your own code, and give too many privileges to too many accounts. You can even use a number of built-in functions carelessly enough to allow break-ins, and you can leave server ports open and unmonitored. Obviously, the list continues to grow. What are some of the really important issues, the biggest mistakes you should watch out for right now so that you don't compromise your data or your system? Security experts Michael Howard and Keith Brown present 10 tips to keep you out of hot water.

Visual C++ .NET: Tips and Tricks to Bolster Your Managed C++ Code in Visual Studio .NET


Developers using the Managed Extensions for C++ have more options than those using other languages because C++ is a lower-level language. However, this means an increase in code complexity. This article discusses a few of the more complex issues facing developers, such as operator overloading, managed types and unmanaged code, and boxing. Also covered are the is operator, the using statement, and string conversions. The author points out the flexibility of Managed Extensions for C++ and outlines the additional effort that is required for you to take advantage of its increased power and flexibility.

Search and Navigation Tips/Tricks with Visual Studio


This is the twenty-seventh in a series of blog posts I'm doing on the VS 2010 and .NET 4 release.

Today's blog post continues on from the Debugging Tips post I did last week, and covers some useful searching and navigation tips/tricks you can take advantage of within Visual Studio.  These tips were ones that my friend Scott Cate (who has blogged dozens of great VS tips and tricks here) recently recommended to me as good tips that most developers using Visual Studio don't seem to know about (even though most have been in the product for awhile). 

Hopefully this post will help you discover them if you aren't already taking advantage of them.  They are all easy to learn, and can help save you a bunch of time.

Ctrl + i - Incremental Search

Most developers using Visual Studio are familiar with the "Find dialog" that you can launch by pressing the "Ctrl + F" key within the IDE.  A surprisingly large number of developers, though, aren't familiar with the "Incremental Search"

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?
