Hi, I'm trying to implement the custom search context code from the wiki [url=http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=searchcontext]here[/url]. I'm using the following:

The dataobject is 'Product' and has

static $searchable_fields = array(
   'Description',
   'ProductCode'
   );

The form/ search function is:

public function SearchForm() {
      $context = singleton('Product')->getDefaultSearchContext();
      $fields = $context->getSearchFields();
      $form = new Form($this, "SearchForm",
         $fields,
         new FieldSet(
            new FormAction('doSearch')
         )
      );
      return $form;
   }
   public function doSearch($data, $form) {
      $context = singleton('Product')->getDefaultSearchContext();
      $results = $context->getResults($data);
      return $this->customise(array(
         'Results' => $results
      ))->renderWith('Page_results');
   }

...but, this gives me 2 fields on the form (Description & Product Code). I really only want one form field on the front-end of the site (ie keywords) but want it to search both Description and product code.

Any ideas on this?
