Implement smart search on custom module tables search in kentico 9

Prashant Verma asked on June 15, 2016 09:14

Hi, Anyone can share your opinion regarding smart search. We have created different custom modules and we have different table for each module. Now need to implement the smart search in a page to fetch the details from that particular table from the custom module table.

Thanks

Hello,

Smart search is working good for the custom objects. I have created few search indexes for custom classes. You can create custom index type or the general one for this objects. I use the second one, it's enough for me and works fine.

I'd definitely recommend using a Smart Search index with the Index Type of "General". This will allow you to use standard out of the box functionality with no custom code on your module's classes.
