Alfresco - Advanced search customization

Dear All,

I am developing a document management solution using Alfresco 3.0.

We are having lots of custom content types and aspects covering all departments of our organization.

How can we extend Alfresco advanced search to generate custom fields dynamically in Additional Options, when I
select any particular Content Type from drop down?

Is it possible to write some class by extending existing classes of Alfresco and dynamically overriding Additional Options pane?

Thanks,
Naveen

It seems someone accidentally moved a book promotion topic out of the forum running the book promotion. Moving topic back to EJB forum.

one option is to define the custom fields for each aspect or type in your web-client-custom.xml

More information on that method can be found in the Alfresco Wiki: http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Web_Client_Customisation_FAQ

Thanks Jessica,

My requirement is little dynamic here.

I am having approximately 40 document types and overall 150 search fields associated with all content types.

If I configure all 150 fields in search page than it will not look good to client.

So I want to generate fields associated with content types or aspects dynamically in Additional Options on clicking of Content Type drop down.

Thanks,
Naveen

You can specify properties based on aspect-type or node-type, this way only properties associated with the particular type or aspect will be displayed. There may be a more dynamic way to do it, but I'm not aware of it, hopefully someone else can pipe in.
