Topic: Search btn with sql query

first of all im in love with MVD

i tried so hard to learn how to create simple databases but with MVD is way easy

i tried to create a recursive search button using SQL QUERY

i have a entry where you put part of the name you search for and want to show a list of all lines have text entry in them

i tried and i know is not working thats why i ask for you help

select users.username from users where users.username LIKE '%+Form1.useredit.text%'

Re: Search btn with sql query

Hi,
Try it like this:

select users.username from users where users.username like '%{form1.useredit.text}%'

For something like this, you could just use the 'search' option rather than 'sqlquery'.

Re: Search btn with sql query

Hi all,


if you use Button SQL Query

use

select users.username from users where users.username like '%{useredit}%'

only component name {useredit}

No, it is not an 'absolute' search (and the query does work).
Use the  'search' function with a filter of '%s%'.   Also optionally, use the 'increm.search' option to trigger your search automatically (see screenshot in the attached example).

Re: Search btn with sql query

Does anyone know how to implement incremental search via script. I have no choice but to use a script to replace a button that was working fine and I am stuck with a rather complex query in script that has to look for entries in form1.globalsearch field.

up to now, I got a button with a on click procedure for a sql query :

select blahblahblah from table where conditionA like "%'+form1.GlobalSearch.text+'%" or conditionB like "%'+form1.GlobalSearch.text+'%"

The query works but I don't get how to trigger an incremental search from the form1.Globalsearch text field via script.

Re: Search btn with sql query

Hi Derek,

thank you so much, it is so much easier than what I was doing, this solution allows to keep the automatic date format instead of having to manipulate it with complex SQL Queries!! I love simplicity!!

Re: Search btn with sql query

How has your experience been with using MVD for database creation, and what specific challenges have you faced in implementing recursive search functionality?

Re: Search btn with sql query

Hi,
Never had any problems creating databases nor ever had any issues with the various search options available in MVD..
Perhaps it would be better to mock-up an example that illustrates the points in your message, zip the application folder and attach it.  Then people can address any specific concern you have..

Can you provide examples or elaborate on particular aspects of your database creation process or challenges with the recursive search functionality in MVD?

Twice the same post with 2 different nicknames smells fishy.
