Question New 'Get books' dialog

I found there are 2 new fields in 'Get books' dialog.
In src/calibre/gui2/store/search/search.py, do_search() will join these fields to generate query string.
And then use self.results_view.model().set_query(query) to apply criteria to view.

My question is, if I type 'UML' in title field then search, it will find nothing whatever use Amazon or Google books as the store.
But if I type 'UML' in keyword field then search, it will return results.
I don't understand what is the difference. I guess that set_query() do something.

Does anyone know this?

keywords will search all metadata of the book, title will search only the title.

If I enter keywords in 'title' and 'keyword', I found the actual query string will be title+keyword. The store plugin return results, after self.results_view.model().set_query(query), the results become empty.

Why?

Because searching by title filters results to only contain those books whose title has the searched for terms. Use the source, Luke.
