RS if/else

Hey Ray

Have got a recordset that I need to wrap in an if, but will be several if and not sure if an if else would be right?

So basically

I need to filter based on if there is a certain value in the StaffJob column and if it satisfies a specific url slug so below would be if the url is /family-children and StaffJob = Head of Family Children then a certain person is placed at the top of the results.

<?php if (strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],"/family-children") !== false) { ?>
<?php
$People = new WA_MySQLi_RS("People",$DBConnection,0);
$People->setQuery("SELECT service_contents.*, join_expertise.*, staff.* FROM service_contents INNER JOIN join_expertise ON service_contents.ServicesID = join_expertise.RowsExpertiseContentID INNER JOIN staff ON join_expertise.RowsStaffContentID = staff.StaffID WHERE service_contents.ServicesID = ? GROUP BY StaffID ORDER BY IF(Locate('Head of Family Children',StaffJob)=1,0,1), StaffOrder ASC");
$People->bindParam("i", "".($PageContents->getColumnVal('ServicesID')) ."", "-1"); //WAQB_Param1
$People->execute();
?>
<?php } ?>



I need to do this and check against:

/family-finance / Head of Family Finance
/personal-injury / Head of Personal Injury
/employment / Head of Employment
/court-of-protection / Head of Court of Protection

And then if none are satsified, this recordset gets used

<?php
$People = new WA_MySQLi_RS("People",$DBConnection,0);
$People->setQuery("SELECT service_contents.*, join_expertise.*, staff.* FROM service_contents INNER JOIN join_expertise ON service_contents.ServicesID = join_expertise.RowsExpertiseContentID INNER JOIN staff ON join_expertise.RowsStaffContentID = staff.StaffID WHERE service_contents.ServicesID = ? GROUP BY StaffID ORDER BY StaffOrder ASC");
$People->bindParam("i", "".($PageContents->getColumnVal('ServicesID')) ."", "-1"); //WAQB_Param1
$People->execute();
?>



Just not sure how to best do it?

Thanks

Jamie

It should be:

IF(Locate(?,StaffJob)<>0,1,0)

I changed it to = as none of them were being displayed in the first position

Have changed it to IF(Locate(?,StaffJob)<>1,0,1) DESC now (adding DESC) and that has worked for some but still not personal injury and court of protectimon.

I think it should be:
IF(Locate(?,StaffJob)<>0,1,0) DESC

thats great, thank you.

Now on a similar vein, I am trying to do the same for the search on the attached page - if someone does a search with the dropdown, if there is a match 'head of ...' in the StaffJob column then that person gets put into position 1 of the results.

Not sure how I do this?

Cheers

J

It should be the same thing, just using a WHERE clause instead of ORDER BY like:

WHERE Locate(?,StaffJob) <> 0

sorry Ray, am not sure how that would work? Doersnt it somehow need to check against whats been searched and then depending on that show the relevant person in the first position?

I guess I'm not sure what you are asking for. I thought this was to search by the value not just display it first.

If you just want to display it first, then you could use the exact same code as before, just get the $searchFor value from the submitted form element instead of setting it from the URL like:


if (isset($_GET["selectName"])) $searchfor = $_GET["selectName"];
