User Interface Elements Hiding Complex Queries

You can transparently use behind the scene complex queries with the following Coveo user interface elements.


Facets are the good examples of hidden complex queries generated using an easy to use user interface. When you click an element in a facet, a corresponding field query is generated (see Refining Search Results Using Facets).

Example: In the Type facet, clicking the PDF element is equivalent to adding the field expression @sysfiletype=="pdf" to your query.

Advanced Search Page

In the default web .NET search interfaces, the optional Advanced Search link opens the Advanced Search page where you can intuitively create more sophisticated queries without having to type field query codes (see Using the Advanced Search Page in .NET Search Interfaces).

Example: In the Document Properties section of the Advanced Search page, selecting the options illustrated in the following figure is equivalent to typing the following field query: @sysfiletype=xls @syssize>=10240 @syslanguage==English @systitle=Funding.

Query Link Icon

In a Coveo .NET Front-End Search interface, the optional Link Query Link icon link that appears at the right end of the search bar header is useful to open a panel where you can see the complete query sent to the Coveo server. You can discover behind the scene field queries added to the keywords that you typed in the search box (see Viewing the Extended Underlying Query).
