Subject Re: StatsComponent doesn't work if field's type is TextField - can I change field's type to String
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2013 14:29:36 GMT
>From the stats component page:

"The stats component returns simple statistics for indexed numeric
fields within the DocSet"

So string, text, anything non-numeric won't work. You can declare it
multiValued but then
you have to add multiple values for the field when you send the doc to
Solr or implement
a custom update component to break them up. At least there's no filter
that I know of that
takes a delimited set of numbers and transforms them.
