I'm trying to use the QueryManager to get some results, but I don't know what the variable name for the query in the UserQuery property of the QueryManager should be.

This works:

userQuery = String.Format("scope:\"Scope Name\"");

However, this doesn't pass on the actual query.

This doesn't work ('default' is the keyword searched on):

userQuery = "default scope:\"Scope Name\"";

(No results)

This also doesn't work:

userQuery = "(default) AND (Scope:Scope Name)";

(query malformed)

Does anyone know how to pass the actual query word to the UserQuery property with an extra parameter (like scope in this case)?

  • try userQuery = "\"default\" Scope:Scope Name";

  • @GintasK Unfortunately that doesn't work. It says it doesn't recognize the scope. If I change it to userQuery = "\"default\" Scope:\"Experis Content\""; it does, but it doesn't fetch results for the 'default' query.

Apparently this works:

userQuery = "\"default\" Scope:\"Scope Name\"";

Hope this helps anyone...
