Date Range Search missing 1st day

Date Range Search missing 1st day

Hi,

By following various posts and tutorials herein, I have successfully created a search by date range.
I have a recordset to filter the date by the form post, and well as "Greater Than or Equal To" and "Less Than or Equal To" form input boxes.

I am using the datepicker as well

All works really well, but there is a unusual bug.

Whenever I do a date range search, it always misses the oldest day.
It's like the "Equal To" (>=) part is not working.

Any advice is appreciated, cant figure this one - 2 files attached.

To successfully achieve this you need to choose Date Range from within the search wizard



and then specify your fields



Note: my db field will be different to yours as I am using one of my existing sites.

this will give you this code block

php:
<?php

//WA Database Search (Copyright 2005, WebAssist.com)
//Recordset: WADAvisitors;
//Searchpage: visitors_Search.php;
//Form: WADASearchForm;
$WADbSearch1_DefaultWhere "";
if (!
session_id()) session_start();
if ((isset(
$_GET["Search_x"]) && $_GET["Search_x"] != "")) {
  
$WADbSearch1 = new FilterDef;
  
$WADbSearch1->initializeQueryBuilder("MYSQL","1");
  
//keyword array declarations

  //comparison list additions
  
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorID","S_VisitorID","AND","=",1);
  
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorUserName","S_VisitorUserName","AND","Includes",0);
  
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorPassword","S_VisitorPassword","AND","Includes",0);

$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorLastName","S_VisitorLastName","AND","Includes",0);

$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorBillAddress2","S_VisitorBillAddress2","AND","Includes",0);
  
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorBillCity","S_VisitorBillCity","AND","Includes",0);

$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorBillZip","S_VisitorBillZip","AND","Includes",0);
  
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("userLevel","S_userLevel","AND","=",1);

  
//save the query in a session variable
  
if (== 1) {
    
$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_visitors_Results"]=$WADbSearch1->whereClause;
  }
}
else     {
  
$WADbSearch1 = new FilterDef;
  
$WADbSearch1->initializeQueryBuilder("MYSQL","1");
  
//get the filter definition from a session variable
  
if (== 1)     {
    if (isset(
$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_visitors_Results"]) && $_SESSION["WADbSearch1_visitors_Results"] != "")     {
      
$WADbSearch1->whereClause $_SESSION["WADbSearch1_visitors_Results"];
    }
    else     {
      
$WADbSearch1->whereClause $WADbSearch1_DefaultWhere;
    }
  }
  else     {
    
$WADbSearch1->whereClause $WADbSearch1_DefaultWhere;
  }
}
$WADbSearch1->whereClause str_replace("\\''""''"$WADbSearch1->whereClause);
$WADbSearch1whereClause '';
?>



note the addition of the function WAQB_getEndDate to the end date clause.

Thanks Dave,
The pages were created using the Data Assist Wizard
From memory, the Search Wizard options you have displayed were not available at setup and are not available in Server Behaviours>DataAssist Search(WADAvisitors)

Obviously the Data Assist Search Wizard has more options, I have not used it yet.

I believe I would have had to create new pages with the Data Assist Search Wizard, if I read it correctly.
I chose to modify the pages already created, so as to retain the existing results functions, like - add/edit/delete, etc., so I searched for and found modification solutions within this forum.

I get from your code, that you might have assumed that the end date is the problem.
It's the start date (Oldest) that skips the first day.

e.g.
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromList("VisitorDate","S_VisitorDate","AND",">=",2);

Or same with "Edit":
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("VisitorDate","S_VisitorDate","AND",">=",2);

If I could just get a "minus one day (-1)" in there somewhere it might fix it, because otherwise it works perfectly.

To answer your first point having checked now it would seem that you cannot open the search wizard if your pages were created with the data assist wizard, I don't use the wizard as a general rule only the individual server behaviours.

On your second post I use this code all the time and it works just fine on date searches for me

to get a beter idea of what is going on, add thr following code to you're page after the < <body> tag:

php:
SQL: <?php echo($query_limit_WADAvisitors); ?><br />




this will write out the sql query being used.

can you send a link to your search so we can test this?

Problem Solved.

It's weird, but since this post I uploaded the website to the clients domain host, and find that the search works perfectly.
I have previously been testing locally using Mamp Server on my Mac.
Locally on my Mac, the search omits the start date.
Remotely on the website, the search is perfect.

The remote server has PHP 5.2.9
MAMP on my Mac has PHP 5.2.6
I will have to check the local configuration and compare with remote, and perhaps download and install the latest version of MAMP

I thank you Dave and Jason for your efforts, and so sorry I have wasted your time.

That's interesting because I run MAMP Pro on my MAC and am currently running PHP 5.2.13 as that is the closest to my clients version and the date range has always worked perfectly for me. MAMP & MAMP Pro are currently at version 1.9.4 mamp-1-9-4-released.html
