Topic: HFTQuery Plug-in Keyword Search

I am developing a plug-in similar to HFTQuery which
was provided as a sample in the Acrobat SDK. This is
a interface to the Acrobat Search Engine.
Unfortunately, I am unable to perform a search of the
keyword property of my files. When I do a search, only
the body ("Score") of the file is searched, even when
I specify that keywords should be used. I believe the
constants that should be used to specify the type of
search are:

"Score" (default)

The code is as follows:

  // ...

  // Specify that keywords are to be searched
  strcpy(gQueryData.QuerySortSpec[0], "Keyword");
  tmpTitle[0] = gQueryData.QuerySortSpec[0];

  sort = (ASBool) gQueryData.QuerySortWays;
  rtn = SearchExecuteQuery(gQueryData.QueryText, 
                           1, tmpTitle, &sort,

  // ...

Similar code can also be found in "QRYDLOG.CPP" of the
HFTQuery sample code. I have also compiled and used 
the HFTQuery plug-in and it also does not perform
keyword searches properly. If anyone knows how I
should be doing this keyword search or why it does not
work please reply as soon as possible. Thank you.
