inexact search

Hi

Have a seaRCH Form created using the wizard with four search fields

name

type

price

LOA

berths

I need to make the last three fields not exact ie if someone types in

10000

I would like it to display 9000-11000 for example

How can I do this.

thanks

Ian

you need to create 2 search parameters for each.

the two parameters will use the same form element and same column.
In the first one set the comparison to >= (Grater than or equal to)

in the second one set the comparison to <= (less than or equal to.

make sure to use the OR separator between them.

Hi Jason

ok as usual I'm struggling with this.

I have my search page which contains no server behaviours,

some session variable

WADA search form

and some server variables.

where do I find the option to add the search perameters or do I start again from scratch?

thanks

the DataAssist Search server behavior is applied to the results page, not the search page.

Hi Jason

not surprisingly this one is loosing me a bit.

if I open the datassist search behaviour is see what is shown on the attached jpeg.

The first option is for a type which is an exact name

the second is a price which I want to make +or minus 5000

the third is a length which I want to make + or - 10

the fourth is no of beds which I want to make + or - 2

Ok so I highlight the second one down and select edit.

my comparrison options are:

=
includes
begins with
end with

I can't see the >= or the <= to mention

Am I in the wrong menu?

thanks

The Column type is set to text text. Greater than or equals can only be used if the column type is set to Number.

Hi Jason

Ok I set it to number and can now begin to see where I'm going but (ok theres always a but)

I used and for the first perameter and set it to be less or equal to ( going well!!!!)

then I looked for where to put in my variance figure ie a price of 5000 + or - 500

I assume it goes in the filter section but they are all greyed out.

so I changed the type box to value and my greyout boxes still stayed greyed out.

What am I mssing out?

cheers

you can giv it a variance the way you are trying to,


you can create a range

where you have 2 search fields and enter a minimum and maximum.

Hi Jason

think I've got it;-)

the code I created is here and I've attatched the original and modified file.

The idea is that the selected price is returned itif it is within 5000 of the typed in figure.

can you take a look and tell me if I've suceeded as (to no surprise) it does not work for me.

thanks

Ian
