Ferry Kranenburg from Change to Comm has contributed a new XPages control as part of the development contest sponsored by We4IT - multi database search control.

Watch the video to see the control in action.

By default all NSFs in the root directory are used as targets but you can also define a list of databases in a property of the custom control. During the search the UI is not blocked. Progress indicators show which databases have already been used and in which databases the search is happening.

The results are displayed in a grid control and they can be sorted dynamically without going back to the databases. Also the results can be customized via custom formulas and developers can define which columns to show.
