Limit the contents in the .html file created to Highlight search results


I need to ask either we can limit, hide or remove the text/contents/metadata fields showing in the .html file which is created when we want to highlight search results. Like the image is attached of the .html file which contains information of the document like complete directory URL, filename, format family etc.

My concern is can I hide or remove the filename or URL from the .html file?

Thank you.

You can filter fields by name if you use the StructureOutputAdapter class.

//C# code
var result = index.Search("word");
Console.WriteLine("Found: " + result.DocumentCount);

var outputAdapter = new StructureOutputAdapter(OutputFormat.Html);
var highlighter = new DocumentHighlighter(outputAdapter);

index.Highlight(result.GetFoundDocument(0), highlighter);

using (var sw = File.CreateText(@"../../../../Output.html"))
    var fields = outputAdapter.GetResult();
    // Take only the fields you need
    for (int i = 0; i < fields.Length; i++)
        var field = fields[i];
        sw.WriteLine("<h2>" + field.Name + "</h2>");
