How to perform UI search using many parameters?

    Question

  • Hi all

    We’ve been working in an App what needs to perform searchs using some parameters like “name”, “county”, “rating”, “prices”, etc. This parameters may be a different quantity depending on the page you’re playing on.

    Our quiz is that in the Search Contract we only are able to search by one topic for the whole App but we can’t refine the search on it.

    What would be the best solution to do this? We’re thinking on implement a Panel or a Page with the search terms depending on the context, Is this valid?

    Many thanks

  • Search isn't appropriate for find-in-a-page behavior. It is designed to search through the app. When the user searches from the charm the app should show a page with all of the results from that search. That landing page can include filters to further refine the search.

    See Guidelines and checklist for search.
