A couple weeks ago I posted about how to create a custom search screen where you could specify exactly what field to search on. I also talked about some of the search options you can set on entities themselves. If you missed it: Creating a Custom Search Screen in Visual Studio LightSwitch. Since then a couple folks asked me how you can create a custom search screen that searches multiple fields that you specify. Turns out this is really easy to do – you can specify multiple filter criteria with parameters on a query and use that as the basis of the screen. To see how, head on over to my blog and read:
