In this article we will be seeing how to create, modify and delete scope display group using c# in SharePoint 2010.

Create scope display group:

In the SharePoint site you can create a new display group for the scope and associate the scope with the group.

Through UI you can go to Site Actions => Site Settings =>Site Administration => Search Scopes => Display group => Create a new display group.

The same thing can be achieved using c# code.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.Office.Server;
using Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration;

namespace SearchScopeDisplayGroup
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {          
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://servername:1111/"))
            {
                using (SPWeb web = site.RootWeb)
                {
                    SearchContext searchContext = SearchContext.GetContext(site);
                    Scopes scopes = new Scopes(searchContext);
                    ScopeDisplayGroupCollection displayGroupColl = scopes.AllDisplayGroups;
                    ScopeDisplayGroup displayGroup = displayGroupColl.Create("CustomDisplayGroup", "Custom Display Group", new Uri(site.Url), true);
                    displayGroup.Add(scopes.GetSharedScope("CustomSiteScope"));
                    displayGroup.Add(scopes.GetSharedScope("CustomScope"));                   
                    displayGroup.Default = scopes.GetSharedScope("CustomScope");
                    displayGroup.Update();                   
                }
            }
        }
    }
}


Modify scope display group:

Here we will be modifying the existing display group using C#.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.Office.Server;
using Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration;

namespace SearchScopeDisplayGroup
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {          
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://servername:1111/"))
            {
                using (SPWeb web = site.RootWeb)
                {
                    SearchContext searchContext = SearchContext.GetContext(site);
                    Scopes scopes = new Scopes(searchContext);                  
                    ScopeDisplayGroup displayGroup = scopes.GetDisplayGroup(new Uri(site.Url), "CustomDisplayGroup");
                    displayGroup.Name = "CustomDisplayGroupNew";
                    displayGroup.Description = "Custom Display Group New";
                    displayGroup.Remove(scopes.GetSharedScope("CustomScope"));
                    displayGroup.Add(scopes.GetSharedScope("BNew"));
                    displayGroup.Update();
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

Delete scope display group:


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.Office.Server;
using Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration;

namespace SearchScopeDisplayGroup
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {          
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://servername:1111/"))
            {
                using (SPWeb web = site.RootWeb)
                {
                    SearchContext searchContext = SearchContext.GetContext(site);
                    Scopes scopes = new Scopes(searchContext);
                    ScopeDisplayGroup displayGroup = scopes.GetDisplayGroup(new Uri(site.Url), "CustomDisplayGroup");
                    displayGroup.Delete();                
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
