Search and display contacts

This article will show you how to insert a web control into a page to display a search feature and list the resulting who's who information on your website.

The search feature can look at various aspects of the people data. At the highest level there is a keyword search, but the control can also be used to search departments and other predefined categories.

  1. Press on your who's who folder and select New Content. The Create New Content window will appear.
  2. Click Web Page and then select your standard web page template, press Close.
  3. A new page will be created, give the page a title (eg. who's who-search) and click Save.
  4. In the editable area of the page, right click to bring up the contextual menu. Select Insert Webcontrol and make any changes needed to the web control settings.Click Save, then Submit & Approve.

For more customisation and details of the other properties within this web control, you can refer to our common web control property list.

Note: By default the search results will display on the same page as the search web control. If you want to display search results on a separate page, you will need to create a new page, insert a listing web control and use the Results Page ID setting to direct the search to it.

Organisational Unit ID

Use the text field to indicate the ID of the organisational unit that the control will search.

Results Control ID

Use this text field to set the ID of the listing control used to list the search results. This is useful if you have multiple listings on a single page. If you leave this property empty it will target all listing controls on the page.
