Cannot create range facet for Price. Range facets can only be created for numerical types and their nullable counterparts as well as dates.

while calling:

this.client.Search().RangeFacetFor(x => x.Price, priceRanges.ToArray()).GetResult();

im getting:

[NotSupportedException: Cannot create range facet for Price. Range facets can only be created for numerical types and their nullable counterparts as well as dates.]
   EPiServer.Find.TypeSearchExtensions.RangeFacetFor(ITypeSearch`1 search, Expression`1 fieldSelector, Action`1 facetRequestAction) +527

however:

public decimal Price { get; set; }

So is not decimal numeric type?

apperantly it is not, from reflected EPiServer.Find.TypeSearchExtensions class:

namespace EPiServer.Find
{
  public static class TypeSearchExtensions
  {
    private static HashSet numericFieldTypes = new HashSet()
    {
      typeof (int),
      typeof (int?),
      typeof (double),
      typeof (double?),
      typeof (short),
      typeof (short?),
      typeof (long),
      typeof (long?),
      typeof (float),
      typeof (float?)
    };

..........

Is there some particular reason for decimal not being numeric type in EPiServer's Find viewpoint?

☝ LOL

This is still a thing seven years later here in November 2021. RangeFacetFor does not support decimal.

Some things never change

Decimal wouldn't work, You have to change the type to double, int, float or short
Or by parsing may work
RangeFacetFor(x => (double)x.TestDescimal)

/K

That is perfectly clear, question is: why EPiServer decided not to include decimal as numeric type?
