Case sensitive search

Case-sensitive search allows you to find words considering uppercase and lowercase letters as distinct. For example, words in context of case-sensitive search ‘Theory’, ‘theory’, and ‘THEORY’ are all different.

Note that case-sensitive search is not compatible with other types of search (see Search flow).

The following example demonstrates how to perform case-sensitive search with a query in text form.

C#

string indexFolder = @"c:\MyIndex\";
string documentsFolder = @"c:\MyDocuments\";
 
Index index = new Index(indexFolder); // Creating index in the specified folder
index.Add(documentsFolder); // Indexing documents from the specified folder
 
SearchOptions options = new SearchOptions();
options.UseCaseSensitiveSearch = true; // Enabling case sensitive search
 
string query = "Windows";
SearchResult result = index.Search(query, options); // Searching

The next example demonstrates how to perform case-sensitive search with a query in object form.

C#

string indexFolder = @"c:\MyIndex\";
string documentsFolder = @"c:\MyDocuments\";
 
Index index = new Index(indexFolder); // Creating index in the specified folder
index.Add(documentsFolder); // Indexing documents from the specified folder
 
SearchOptions options = new SearchOptions();
options.UseCaseSensitiveSearch = true; // Enabling case sensitive search
 
SearchQuery query = SearchQuery.CreateWordQuery("Windows"); // Creating search query in object form
 
SearchResult result = index.Search(query, options); // Searching
