Hello, I was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction toward implementing a page in my Web Form application that would be able to allow a user to search a text file which originally exists on a Window File share. Once the user searches for their text, I'd like the page to be split into two panes: One on the left that lists all the hits, each listing being a link which contains an excerpt of text around the link. And another pane on the right which shows the full text document with all the hits highlighted.Now, should I be loading the text file into a data base and be using something like Lucence .NET to search? Or is there a library of controls that can do all this for me already?By searching around the internet I've found bits and pieces of solutions to this problem, such as how to highlight result hits: http://www.knowdotnet.com/articles/highlightingsearchtext.htmlAnd how to perform database searches: http://www.asp.net/sql-server/videos/enabling-full-text-search-in-your-text-dataAm I going to have to painstakingly glue all these things together and write my own solution to this?Thanks for the help in advance.
