Custom Indexbuilder

Hi,

I'm working with a custom index builder and are adding stuff to the index like this:

                    var document = new IndexDocument
                    {
                        ["ContentType"] = IndexContentType.PDF_CONTENT,
                        ["AreaId"] = reader["PageAreaID"],
                        ["ContentName"] = reader["Filename"],
                        ["Language"] = language,
                        ["PDFLink"] = LinkToFile(fileInfo.FullName),
                        ["ContentText"] = fileConent,
                        ["DirectoryFullName"] = fileInfo.DirectoryName
                    };

It all works fine. 

What I cant figure out is how I should work with relations. 

If I, for example, have a product that I index. How do I create relations to the product images. I would appriciate an example of this. 

Regards / Aki

That would be arrays - something like this:
["Products"] = new Array["prod1", "prod2"]

What about the data for the related "items".

If a have a IndexDocument like this:

var document = new IndexDocument
 {
     ["ProductId"] = "PROD1",
     ["Images"] = new Array["IMG1", "IMG2", "IMG3"] 
 };

How do I handle the data for the "Images". For example path to imageFile.

You can make an array of json documents and index those. Remember not to analyze and to store the data. Then the objects can be deserialized. Altnertive is to create a field "ImagePaths" and have the paths as array in there in the same order as the references.
