Kentico 11 to 12 upgrade CMS.Search.SearchResult

David Pearson asked on March 8, 2022 19:50

The code is in a method in webpart code behind.
The Method returns a dataset from the search.

DataSet results = SearchResult.Search(parameters);

Return results;

The API Change guide states CMS.Search.SearchHelper.Search(CMS.Search.SearchParameters) was change to CMS.Search.SearchResult

How do I get a dataset from CMS.Search.SearchResult? Code example?

If you have older code from Kentico 11 and below that depends on the search results to be dataset you can use the following below to convert CMS.Search.SearchResult to a DataSet. This will convert a List of objects to a dataset for you.

public DataSet ConvertToDataSet<T>(IList<T> list)
    DataSet dsFromDtStru = new DataSet();
    DataTable table = new DataTable();
    PropertyInfo[] properties = typeof(T).GetProperties();
    foreach (PropertyInfo prop in properties)
        table.Columns.Add(prop.Name, prop.PropertyType);
    foreach (T item in list)
        DataRow row = table.NewRow();
        foreach (PropertyInfo prop in properties)
            row[prop.Name] = prop.GetValue(item);
    return dsFromDtStru;
