How can I programmatically assign some custom rendering xslt to a search results webpart using Visual Studio? I'm working with SharePoint 2010

Are you creating your own version of the CSRWP? Or are you customizing a webpart on an existing page?

For both cases, you have to modify the ItemXslLink, and set it to the link to your xslt.

If it's the second case, you can use the SPWeb.GetLimitedWebPartManager to change the properties of a webpart on an existing page.

My search center is located to another site collection. The webpart for people search is PeopleCoreResultsWebPart and for the general search CoreResultsWebPar – user1833 Mar 1 '11 at 13:20
