I would like to create a custom search page that allows users to search values specific to a content type. Coming from an ASP.NET background my first impulse was to create a web part that:
- Allowed users to enter search criteria
- Performed the search
- Displayed the results
I did some investigation and found the "Search Core Results" web part in SharePoint 2010. With this it appears that you can just values in your query string and it will handle both the searching and displaying of data.
My question is what would be the best approach to create my custom search page?
Should I create a custom webpart that will allow users to enter their search criteria and then craft a query string that will allow the
Search Core Results web part to display the data?
Is there a "no code" solution that I should be using?
Should I just do what I had originally planned and custom code everything?
