DataAssist Search - Can't add defaultWhere clause

DataAssist Search - Can't add defaultWhere clause

I can open the server behavior and add a default Where clause but nothing is actually modified in the code on the page. If I open the behavior, the default Where clause is blank.

(Original page was based on a template so I tried detaching the page from the template but it still does not work.)

After entering the default where clause, hit the enter key on your keyboard to force the change to stick before clicking the OK button.

Thanks Ray; that makes it stick. But here's the next problem:

-----
I enter this:

WHERE 0 <> 0
------
Which writes out this in the code:

$WADbSearch1_DefaultWhere = "WHERE 0 <> 0";
----
Which generates this error in the browswer when accessing the results page:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE 0 <> 0 ORDER BY gfxDate DESC LIMIT 0, 12' at line 1

What am I missing?

Thanks,
David

Use " 0 <> 0" instead of "WHERE 0 <> 0";

Hi Jason,
Sorry for the delay. I've been really backed up. ;-)

OK, it no longer chokes. But it's either not doing what it's supposed to or I'm not understanding correctly.

What I'm trying to acomplish is:

If on some page on the site, a user clicks the Search button for the search form without having filled in a search criteria, they do not see any matches on the results page. (And I redirect them to a differnt page with WA Server Redirect.)

What is currently happening is that when the user does the above, they are shown all records.

I had hoped / thought that adding the 0 <> 0 would accomplish the task.

Going to look for vegies and fruit but will be back soon.

Thanks,
David

make sure in your testing that you are closing the browser completely.


The search criteria is stored in a session variable. The default where clause is used only when a user comes to the page without triggering the search, and if the session variable is not set.

If you have performed a search, the default where clause will not be sues,. because the session variable will be set.

Close the browser completely to clear the session, then try again.

Didn't work! Tried IE8, Chrome, FireFox 3.5 on XP and Safari on Mac. Closed all browser sessions. Started browser, returns all records every time.
