I've upgraded my version to 7.1 and now I'm trying to get the search functionality to work. To add search content I previously implemented the ISearchable on my controllers. I replaced that with the ModuleSearchBase abstract class and overriden the GetModifiedSearchDocuments class. 

Because ModuleSearchBase is an abstract class I can't inherit from it on al my controller classes because I already implement a baseclass on some of them and multiple inheritance is not supported in C#.

How can I solve this?

Jurgen,

I would suggest to implement a controller class that inherits from ModuleSearchBase and does the thing. Set this controller class as the business controller class, and you're done. If you also implement other interfaces like IPortable or IUpgradeable, implement the appropriate methods inside this class as well.

Best wishes
Michael

Thanks for your quick response. I tried to implement a controller class and changed the business controller class in my module.dnn file to that controller. I manually reindexed via host > schedule and tried to search on a "foo" term but it show no results found.

This is my foo implementation:

public override IList GetModifiedSearchDocuments(ModuleInfo moduleInfo, DateTime beginDate)
{
IList searchDocuments = new List();

SearchDocument searchDocument = new SearchDocument
{
AuthorUserId = 1,
Description = "foo",
ModuleId = moduleInfo.ModuleID,
PortalId = moduleInfo.PortalID,
Url = "url/foo",
Title = "foo"
};

searchDocuments.Add(searchDocument);

return searchDocuments;
}

This works for me (of course, I still have to code the details, but I do find " xxxx" in a site search after I have executed the site crawler from the scheduler)

    public class LidBesonderhedeController : ModuleSearchBase
    {
        #region ModuleSearchBase

        public override IList GetModifiedSearchDocuments(ModuleInfo modInfo, DateTime beginDate)
        {
            var searchDocuments = new List();
             //I think I should start my loop here to go through all the members data (my control gets a id parameter to show specific data)
            var searchDoc = new SearchDocument
            {
                UniqueKey = "xxxx",
                PortalId = modInfo.PortalID,
                Title = modInfo.ModuleTitle,
                Description = "xxxxxxxx",
                Body = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
                ModifiedTimeUtc = DateTime.Today.ToUniversalTime()
            };
            searchDocuments.Add(searchDoc);
   // close the loop here
            return searchDocuments;
        }
        #endregion
    }


 

  1. My records has a LastModifiedOn date field, so I will use that at  ModifiedTimeUtc
  2. I'm still not sure how to get just the last modified > than statement. (I do not want to process all records all the time) (How to know when it was last crawled vs the records lastmodifieddate)
  3. and URL (not shown above). In the pre 7.1 I could just make the GUID id={0} and pass it in, now I'm not sure...do I have to build the whole URL?

A) Have to add a dedicated class for this (could not use it inside the PortalBase as before
B) Had to modify my DesktopModules, add a BusinessControllerClass and SupportedFeatures=2
