Search Date is not working

Search Date is not working

in my search form I have 3 date fields setup to search 3 columns in my table (sBookDate, sReleaseDate, sBirthDate). I have tried changing the columns from varchar to date format with no luck. For some reason it is ignoring any of those search elements. Attached is the search form and results form. Can you please take a peek and tell me what I am doing wrong? I could have sworn I had this working and something has obviously changed.

Thanks in advance!

on the results page, you are using the variables:
$sBookDate
$sReleaseDate
$sBirthDate



in the data assist search behavior, but these variables are not defined any where.


you need to add code to create the those variables used the combined values from the select list list.

Hi Jason,

I thought this was what lines 32,33, and 34 did on the results page:
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr4,"".((isset($sBookDate))?$sBookDate:"") ."","AND","Includes",",%20","%20","%22","%22",0);
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr5,"".((isset($sReleaseDate))?$sReleaseDate:"") ."","AND","Includes",",%20","%20","%22","%22",0);
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr6,"".((isset($sBirthDate))?$sBirthDate:"") ."","AND","Includes",",%20","%20","%22","%22",0);

What else do I need to add? Thanks!

you are just using the variables in those lines, there needs to be code before those lines that assigns those variables values.

For example, the booking date is comprised of three select lists named "Month", "Day" and "Year"


you need to add code to create the $sBookDate variable using the three select lists:

php:
$sBookDate = "".isset($_POST["Month"]))?$_POST["Month"]:""."/".isset($_POST["Day"]))?$_POST["Day"]:""."/".isset($_POST["Year"]))?$_POST["Year"]:""."";

Okay, I think I understand. Where should I place the code? I tried to add it as a test directly underneath $KeyArr6 = array("Birth_Date"); but its giving me a white screen now? Thanks for you help on this!

sorry, light syntax error in the previous code, use this instead:

php:
$sBookDate = "".(isset($_POST["Month"])?$_POST["Month"]:"")."/".(isset($_POST["Day"])?$_POST["Day"]:"")."/".(isset($_POST["Year"])?$_POST["Year"]:"")."";
