16. Working with the Verity Search Interface > 16.4. The Verity Search Language

The Verity Search Language

When you search a Verity collection using the cfsearch tag, you specify a number of parameters, including the criteria used for the search. The search criteria consists of zero or more words and/or phrases. The search criteria can also include operators and modifiers to further refine the search. We’ll cover all of this in the next section.

It should be noted that Verity handles case sensitivity in the following way:

  • If your search string is in all lowercase characters or all uppercase characters, the search is treated as a case-insensitive search.

  • If your search string consists of mixed-case characters, the search is treated as a case-sensitive search.

This default behavior can be changed via the <case> modifier (which is addressed in the following section) to specify the case for the search.
