    Is there an easy place to customize the size of the snippet returned in the Search Results? I don't want to just use Len("Snippet") because it will sometimes cut off right in the middle of an html tag. I'm sure it's something obvious, but can't seem to locate anything.

    Hi Kalvin MacLeod,

    Perhaps you might do it by creating a custom search results set:
    int count; 
    IList<Telerik.Search.Engine.ResultItem> results = Telerik.Search.Engine.SearchManager.Search(q, "SearchTerm", 0, 10, "AnyWord"out count); 
    if (count == 0) 
         rptResults.Visible = false
         rptResults.DataSource = results; 

    Where the SearchTerm is what you have searched for, and the rptResults - the repeater which is showing the results. The result list will be filled with your Search Results items. Each item has the Snippet property you could use. Other than that, the snippets could not be changed or customized, but we will change the individual search result items in our future versions, in order to provide more flexibility and options over the results.

    I hope this helps.
