    Re: Problem with search and scaffolded searchform Link to this post

    This became more complicated than i thought.

    Filtering while searching is of course much better. Should have thought about that. Thank you guys.
    But i cannot push a new Hiddenfield into the searchform since that value doesn't exist in the searchContext. Even if I do that the search ignores that field.

    I guess it would be possible to push something similar into $context but that is to complex of a variable for me to understand when i print_r it.

    Adding a new value to searchable_fields on the dataobject (so that it will be included in defaultSearchContext) works. I can then remove the field from the form and then add the key-value pair again right before doing the search:

    $context = singleton('Apartment')->getDefaultSearchContext();
    //Add fields so that only published are shown and only related.
    $data['ApartmentStatus'] = "Publicerad";
    $data['ApartmentListID'] = $this->ID;
    $results = $context->getResults($data);

    Thanks again!
