SearchType Enumeration

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Specifies the type of search in an instance of the SearchExpression class.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls.Expressions
Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

public enum SearchType

Member nameDescription
ContainsIndicates that a search should determine whether the search string matches a string anywhere in a field.
EndsWithIndicates that a search should determine whether the search string matches a string at the end of a field.
StartsWithIndicates that a search should determine whether the search string matches a string at the beginning of a field.

The SearchExpression filter option uses the SearchType enumeration when it performs a string comparison. You set the SearchType property to one of the SearchType enumeration values.

The following example shows how to use markup to set the SearchExpression filter option to the StartsWith value of the SearchType enumeration.

<asp:SearchExpression SearchType="StartsWith" DataFields="Name" >
