MSDN Webcast: SharePoint Server 2010 (Part 3 of 8): Customizing Search Results (Level 200)
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 has many new options for customizing search results. Unlike Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, where all of the core search Web parts were sealed and could not be modified, in SharePoint Server 2010 all of the primary search parts can be inherited and their behavior modified. The presenter of this webcast demonstrates this new functionality by creating a new search results Web part that is based on the CoreResultsWebPart class. The presenter adds some additional sorting capabilities to the Web part and in the process demonstrate the pattern that developers should use when customizing this core search results part.
