Inheritance and interfaces

This topic describes inheritance when using the Client class and interfaces in the .NET Client API for Optimizely Search & Navigation.

How it works

When you are searching using the Client class, inheritance is supported out of the box. For example, you have two classes, User and Author. If you search for users, you also get matching authors back.

Example

searchResult = client.Search<User>()
    .For("John")
    .InField(x => x.Name)
    .GetResult();

var isUser = (searchResult.First is User);
//isUser IS true

var isAuthor = (searchResult.First is Author);
//isAuthor MIGHT be true

You also can search over all types that implement a specific interface.
