I want to create one page or document library where can I perform search. Suppose user hit the Url like http://mysite/doclibname/filestartnamethat time on my page show only filestartname files. How can I do?

  • hi, Please correct me If my understanding is wrong ? You are asking that you want to create a page where the search results has to show, when a user type the text on search text box and hit the search button or press enter. it has to redirected to your page and you want to display the results in your own page ?

  • If you keep this {QueryString.MyParameter1} and in test result preview you cannot see the results as the query text comes from query string. You just save and pass manually in the url and you can the results on the page directly. Feb 23, 2017 at 5:11
  • Yes bro I pass the value in URL but result not display. href="mysite/Pages/Search.aspx?MyParameter1=filestartname* When i pass this URL result display but when i pass url href="mysite/Pages/Search.aspx?MyParameter1=Title:filestartname* that time not display. why?

  • May be Title(Title:filestartn‌​ame*) field is blank for all documents in library. you try with other fields present in library which has data like author. author:admin* Feb 23, 2017 at 5:30
  • I try other fields but not work this "MyParameter1=Title:filestartn‌​ame" But when I try this MyParameter1=filestartn‌​ame* that time filter
