I am using the search context to search a DataObject within model admin. I have followed this: to get it working.

How can I get this to work with multiple DataObjects?

Add this to your Page_Controller (in the Page.php):

public function results($data, $form){
$data = $_REQUEST;

$query = htmlspecialchars($data['Search'], ENT_QUOTES,'UTF-8');

$obj1 = DataObject::get("Obj1","MATCH (Title, MetaKeywords) AGAINST ('$query' IN BOOLEAN MODE)");
$obj2 = DataObject::get("Obj2","MATCH (Title, MetaKeywords) AGAINST ('$query' IN BOOLEAN MODE)");
$obj3 = DataObject::get("Obj3","MATCH (Title, MetaKeywords) AGAINST ('$query' IN BOOLEAN MODE)");

$searchresults = new DataObjectSet();

$data['Results'] = $searchresults;
} else {
$data['Results'] = '';

$data['Title'] = 'Searchresults';

return $this->customise($data)->renderWith(array('Page_results', 'Page'));

This works for the standard searchfield in Silverstripe.
