Adding Display Fields to Search Results With the .NET Interface Editor

In a Coveo .NET Front-End search interface, display fields provide additional information concerning each search result (see What Are Display Fields?). By default, all system fields and new custom fields that you create are set as display fields in the index so they are available from the .NET Interface Editor to be included as Display Fields in the search results of a given .NET search interface. Display fields also appear in the Index Browser which is useful for troubleshooting purposes (see Reviewing Document Details from the Index Browser).

Note: Fields are available as Display Fields in the .NET Interface Editor only when they are set as display fields in the index (see Managing Display Fields).
