Performing a single search on Multiple Keywords and on Multiple Properties


Hello everyone,

I need to create a search page for a client and the main requirements are:

  • The page must take multiple search keywords and return the results that contain all the keywords. For example, if keyword 1 for the name is "cars" and keyword 2 for material is "steel" the items returned should have both of them.
  • The results must contain the search keywords in their fields. For example, if the item property is "steel" and the query word is "tee", it should retrieve that item (probably a wildcard search here)
  • The search must support pagination

Ideally what I would do should be this, but I already know that these options are not possible:

var query = search
    .For("cars").InField(x => x.Vehicle)
    .For("steel").InField(x => x.Material)
var searchQuery = search.
  .Filter(x => x.Vehicle.Contains("cars"))
  .Filter(x => x.Material.Contains("steel"))

I have been trying to do multiple searches. One search query for each one of the different keywords, and then join the results at the end, but because of pagination this is not a great idea.

Could you please help me?
