System.Object
  Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchContext

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Server.Search (in Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("This class is obsolete now. Please use SearchServiceApplication and SearchServiceApplicationProxy instead.")]
[GuidAttribute("E4CCCDDF-F320-479F-9EFD-588F4EC91C84")]
[SharePointPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ObjectModel = true)]
public sealed class SearchContext

The SearchContext object is the entry point to the SharePoint Enterprise Search[N.Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration] object model. The GetContext() method returns the search context for site, server, or SSP that you specify.

NoteNote

If you use the GetContext overload of the SearchContext class to retrieve the search context, we recommend that your code instantiates the SPSite object within a using statement to ensure the object is released once it's no longer needed. The code in the Example section demonstrates how to do this.

For more information about the SearchContext class and the SharePoint Enterprise Search Administration object model, see Getting Started with the Search Administration Object Model and How to: Return the Search Context for the Search Service Provider.

[C#]

SearchContext context;
using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://yourSiteName"))
{
     context = SearchContext.GetContext(site);

}
