SearchPane.QueryText | queryText property

Applies to Windows only

The current text in the search box of the search pane.

Syntax


var queryText = searchPane.queryText;

Property value

Type: String [JavaScript] | System.String [.NET] | Platform::String [C++]

The current query text. If the search pane was not used, this is an empty string.

Remarks

Note  An app can't use both the search box (Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.SearchBox for Windows Store apps using C++, C#, or Visual Basic, WinJS.UI.SearchBox for Windows Store apps using JavaScript) and the SearchPane. Using both the search box and the search pane in the same app causes the app to throw an exception with this message: "Cannot create instance of type 'Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.SearchBox.'"

You can get the query text at any time, even if the search pane isn't open.
