Not able to access EPiServer page Properities when a class file is used.

Hi I have a Class file called SearchHit , which I have used for searching with in the EPiServer Pages. When I tried to access properities like "PageMetaData" I'm not able to get the values. Please check once. SearchHit Class: public SearchHit() { this.Id = 0; this.PageTitle = string.Empty; this.Url = string.Empty; this.PageMetaData = string.Empty; } public int Id { get; set; } public string PageTitle { get; set; } public string Url { get; set; } public IVCategoryCollection Categories { get; set; } Code I have used for Search and display of pages: var result = query .Select(x => new SearchHit { PageTitle = x.PageName, PageMetaData = x["PageMetaData"].ToString(), PageMetaData = CurrentPage["PageMetaData"].ToString(), Id=x.PageLink.ID, Url = x.LinkURL }) .Take(Count) .Track() .GetResult(); Results = result; foreach (var pItem in Results) { litTechnical.Text += "
  • "; litTechnical.Text += pItem.PageTitle + ""; litTechnical.Text += pItem.PageMetaData + "
  • "; } Please help me, What I'm still missing.

    You cannot use x["PageMetaData"] when using EPiServer Find. You'll have to make the property strongly typed. Create a new property on your baseclass called MetaData (or whatever you want), and do something like this:

    public string MetaData { get { return this["PageMetaData"] as string; } }

    Hi Found a solution for the same. I have used PageReference, Now I'm able to access the Properities. Thanks
