Coveo File Result Template

Legacy feature

This article pertains to the Coveo Hive framework which is now in maintenance mode.

Choose one of Coveo’s more modern, lightweight, and responsive libraries for any future search interface development. See the search interface Implementation guide for more details.

Coveo for Sitecore Specific Rendering Provides a Coveo JavaScript Search Framework Underscore.js result template for Coveo Results List and Coveo Omnibox Result List renderings using an on-disk .cshtml file.

Usage notes

  • The Coveo File Result Template rendering data source must reference the result template .cshtml filename. Save your result template .cshtml file in the <SITECORE_INSTANCE_ROOT>\Coveo\Hive\templates folder.

  • For more result template content details and examples, refer to the Edit the content of a result template article.

  • Typical search interface result sections contain several result template renderings (whether Coveo Item Result Template renderings, Coveo File Result Template renderings, or a combination of both) with conditions that determine the template a result item will use. The order of your result template renderings in the Result Templates placeholder is important (see Result template conditions).

Sample generated HTML and corresponding visual output

Consider a situation where you create separate result templates for your Books Sitecore template items, and your Author Sitecore template items. Using a Template based condition in your Coveo File Result Template rendering data sources, each rendering would generate outputs similar to the following.

<script id="coveo9b6c6a33" class="result-template" type="text/x-underscore-template"
data-sc-all-conditions="{&quot;_template&quot; : &quot;F28528EB0B724D70B476FFD9F1A169F0&quot;}"
data-applied-prebind="true" data-field-z95xtemplate="F28528EB0B724D70B476FFD9F1A169F0">
