ArcGIS Silverlight Viewer - Need Find/Search Tools

    In the previous WEB ADF in versions 9.3.1 and 10.0, the end user had the option of configuring searches for application using the ArcGIS Server Manager.  Since the introduction of the Silverlight Viewer, this type of functionality has gone away, forcing the end user to code in searches.  I would like to see out-of-the-box find tools that the end user can configure to peform searches against their services.  I would also like to see these find tools have the option of configuring a choice list that the end user can choose from, like the old WEB ADF.

    The current search tool is limited to geocoding.  The find tool should allow the user to search for lines and polygons as well.

    I would like to see ESRI bring back configurable searches like we had in the old WEB ADF.
