FuzzyClass Overview

Top  Previous  Next

The FuzzyClass supports the BrowseFuzzyMatching control template. These classes provide the searching and weighting algorithms.

FuzzyMatching provides a way to search for a value and get all records that have that value somewhere in the record's columns. The data returned is weighted based on where in the record the value exists.

Lets see this in an example. Using a database of Books, we might have some fields such as Title, Author, and ISBN. If we choose to search for the value of 'Potter', we will get all records which have 'Potter' in the Title (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) or in the Author (Beatrix Potter).
