Use the RankingParameters() property of the Ranking class to get the collection of ranking parameters for a Search service application.

Use an indexer to return a single ranking parameter from the RankParamCollection object. For example, assuming the collection is assigned to a variable named rankingParams, use rankingParams[index] in Microsoft Visual C# or rankingParams(index) in Microsoft Visual Basic, where index is the index number of the ranking parameter in the collection, or a string containing the name of the ranking parameter.


You cannot add new ranking parameters, or remove or change the names of existing parameters; you can modify only the ranking parameter's value.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
