Int32 fields not searchable? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Consider the following table structure in an external datasource (SQL2008):

    ID (uniqueidentifier)
    EventID (int)
    Message (varchar(MAX))

    When I've created a searchscreen for the table above, I've noticed that I cannot search against EventID field. Is this a beta1 issue or am I missing something?

  • That is correct.  In Beta 1, search is performed only over entity properties of type string.  Furthermore, search is configurable to the extent that you can specify in the entity designer if a property or an entity is searchable (check or uncheck the Is Searchable property in the property sheet).
