Enabling grid view for search results in WebLink

posted on March 13, 2015 Show version history

Enabling grid view for search results in WebLink 9 has become extremely easy. Grid view is supported in the search page and in the welcome page after running a search. To enable grid view, open the search.aspx and/or the welcome.aspx depending on where you want the search results grid to appear. Once open for editing, look for the following code:


<div style="display: table; table-layout: fixed; width: 100%;">
    <%-- Set Enabled to true if using grid view; otherwise, set it to false for list view --%>
               runat="server" width="100%" MaxLength="20" Enabled="false" />


To see the search results grid, change Enabled="false" to Enabled="true". If you want this in both the welcome page and search page, you have to change this in both files. After it is changed, save the file and refresh the browser.

Can the grid view be customized to show columns of meta data field ?

Also, is it possible to enable this for Cloud clients?

Is this still valid for WebLink 10? Is this documented in the Help documentation?

Hey Blake,

To use grid view in the current release, you need to revert to the old search ASPX file, which is installed as Search9.aspx: see these instructions.  Then you just follow the same steps as you would have in 9.

We've developed a front end for easily switching the view (and inserting the grids on the newer pages); that'll be in the WebLink Designer in the next on-premises release and the next Cloud release.

Are there plans to make it as part of the configuration through the GUI?

Can the file path to the welcome.aspx or search.aspx be added. Im looking in the following folder path but I dont see any html files with those names.


"C:\Program Files\Laserfiche\WebLink\Web Files"

Hello Anthony,

You should be looking for files called



within "C:\Program Files\Laserfiche\WebLink\Web Files". not HTML files.

Would it be possible to enable grid view for Weblink 8. If so where would I go for this?

It is a little more involved to get WebLink 8 to show search results columns which is why we made it a bit easier in WebLink 9.

This issue is fixed in WebLink 9 SP1. Please see KB 1013665.

When applying the Grid View form the above solution. We have found that the search hits, can are displayed when you select the number from the Hits column. We receive a box at the bottom of the pages where the links to the pages are now not operating correctly. We have also found that when there is more that 20+ hits we can not select the second page to show the results.


Thank you,

Let me direct you to this recent post with a similar question that is currently being looked in to. Any updates regarding your question will be addressed there.

I believe what he is pointing out is that the context hits do not work, when enabled in weblink. The links don't open documents and you can't move from page 1 to page 2.

Hi Jared,

Is there a way to have the search results load in a new window rather than in the same page?  We have some customizations built for a customer in weblink 8 that aren't translating over to weblink 9 the way we want to.

Hi Jen,

The original post was just to mention the new and easier method of enabling the grid view for search results in WebLink 9.

For additional customization questions, can you start a new thread? Also, can you describe what customizations you have in WebLink 8 that aren't working right in WebLink 9?
