Release Notes

This is the next stable release of the Filtered Search Web Part for SharePoint.

Additions/Improvements over the previous version:-
  1. Listboxes (user configurable) can now be used in place of checkboxes
  2. An additional set of columns ("Search Columns") may be selected and the column values will be searched for occurances of the search term. Note:-
    • Available columns are taken from the visible columns in the default view of the library
    • Columns are searched independently of the SharePoint search and do not need to be set up as "Managed Properties"
    • Hits in both the document body and the selected Search Columns will rank highest and appear first in the results
    • The web part can be configured to show the values of these columns in the search results, whether or not a search hit has been found (configurable)
  3. Search results are now presented in order of ranking
  4. The link to the parent library can now be "Filtered" to group together documents which are similar to the search hit. Notes:-
    • If Multiple selections are made in one column (eg "Show me all hits where Document Type is either "Form" or "Template" or "Leave Application") then the filtered library view for a hit that is a "Template" will show only documents where "Document Type" equals "Template"
    • The link will take you to the default view of the library - if this is a datasheet view, then the filtering will not work (the default view needs to be a Standard View for the filtering to work)
  5. Column values (and also the column lists themselves) are now sorted alphabetically, and are case-independant
  6. The search box can now be placed above the columns rather than below (configurable)
  7. BUGFIX Changes to the "Maximum number of unique values for each column" are now actually honoured!

Please note that the search results appear within the web part itself, and are not paginated. Therefore if you configure the web part to use a library that contains several hundred (or even more than 100) documents, you should make sure that you place the web part at the bottom of the page.

Setup

The included setup.bat file is generated by VS2008 + VsWSS 1.3. If you are installing the web part for the first time, run "setup.bat /install" on the SharePoint server.
If you are installing an updated version, use "setup.bat /uninstall" followed by "setup.bat /install".
