Customize the label of the search button: Hard-code the label of the search button

For each site, you can hard-code different search button label.
Perform the following:

  1. Open your project in Visual Studio.
  2. Add and register a user widget, following procedure Tutorial: Customize the label of the search button in a multiple site project.
  3. In the CustomButton.ascx.cs file, use the MultisiteContext and SystemManager classes to check a site by its name and hard-code the label of the search button, depending on the current site where the widget is rendered on.

    EXAMPLE: For more information about the contents of the file, see the CustomButton.ascx.cs in Sitefinity documentation-samples on GitHub.

  4. Build your solution and restart the application.

When you place the standard Search widget on a page from FirstSite, it displayes label Search; when you place it on a page from SecondSite, it displayes label Search2; when you place it on ThirdSite, it displayes label Search3.
