SearchResult SearchResult SearchResult SearchResult Class

Definition

The SearchResult class encapsulates a node in the Active Directory Domain Services hierarchy that is returned during a search through DirectorySearcher.

SearchResultSearchResultSearchResultSearchResult

Examples

The following example creates a new DirectoryEntry object with the desired path and uses the FindOne method to initiate the search. After performing the search, the example uses the GetDirectoryEntry method to retrieve the live directory entry identified in the search results.

Remarks

Instances of the SearchResult class are very similar to instances of DirectoryEntry class. The crucial difference is that the DirectoryEntry class retrieves its information from the Active Directory Domain Services hierarchy each time a new object is accessed, whereas the data for SearchResult is already available in the SearchResultCollection, where it gets returned from a query that is performed with the DirectorySearcher class. Only those properties that are specified through the DirectorySearcher.PropertiesToLoad collection in your query will be available from SearchResult.
