Default LINQ to EF eqiuvalent for SQL LIKE

Hi,

I am trying to implement a search engine on my site where my users can search for products and titles of books. When a user enters a keyword, he is directed like this;

Response.Redirect(string.Format("~/Results.aspx?Keyword={0}", searchTextBox.Text);

Then in the Load Event of the Results.aspx page, I want to collect the keyword and put it in a linq to EF query that returns values that are like the keyword, not exactly the keyword.

Hi there,

For questions not directly related to the book such as this one, you're better off posting this in a more general ASP.NET category. This way you'll attract more viewers.

That said, what exactly do you need help with? You could use Contains on a string property to search text columns....

That is what I do, but I thought there was another way.

Thanks.
