Represents the base class for executing search queries by using the SharePoint Enterprise Search query object model, and defines the properties and methods that are shared by the FullTextSqlQuery and KeywordQuery classes.
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Server.Search (in Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.dll)
[KnownTypeAttribute(typeof(KeywordQuery))] [DataContractAttribute(Namespace = "http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint/search/KnownTypes/2008/08")] [SharePointPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ObjectModel = true)] [SharePointPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, ObjectModel = true)] public abstract class Query : IDisposable
The Query class is not intended to be used directly from your code, but is designed to be the base implementation for the SharePoint Enterprise Search Query object model classes.
Instead, you should use the FullTextSqlQuery class for executing SQL syntax search queries, or the KeywordQuery class for executing keyword syntax or FAST Query Language (FQL) search queries.
