RE: alphabetical sorting... limiting and paginatingonnext set of letter group

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Ramil,

	I'm also facing a similar problem, I would like to get the list
based on user Input. 

Please input 1st Letter of designers wanted : A, D, P

I've tried using OR but it somehow screws things up.

Cheers,

yes of course. =) just create a function that takes in two letters as a
parameter,
then build the query string from it.


function($char_begin, $char_end)

{
  $q_begin = strtolower($char_begin);
  $q_end = chr(ord(strtolower($char_begin))+1);
  $query = "SELECT designer_name FROM designer WHERE designer_name BETWEEN
'".$q_begin."' AND '".$q_end."' ORDER BY designer_name";


  //do your query here.
}
