Search contract for multiple areas - what is the recommended way to do it? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can only implement one search contract per application. Now imagine I'm creating a recipe book which tracks my fridge/pantry inventory as well - so I'd like to let user search for recipes or search for food items I have in stock.

    How would you do it?

  • Hi Sergey,

    The top level search would be for anything in your app. You can let users scope the search within your app from the search results pane. Take a look at the Guidelines and checklist for search for more details. The section under "Let users filter and/or scope search results from the search results page" has example UI for doing this.
