Hi Mihaela,

I'd like to find a similar way as "NB records limit".

1/ I've an element "Formation" with 2 radio choices : "Debutant" and "Confirmed" value.

2) I would like to count the number of "Debutant" and "Confirmed"
In two hidden elements.
Using a PHP cmd line, similar to record count, see my trial (but error) :
<?php $db = JFactory::getDBO();
$db-> setQuery("Select count(id) From #__facileforms_subrecords Where value=Debutant and name=Formation");
return $db->loadResult(); ?>

Record count (OK):
<?php $db = JFactory::getDBO();
$db->setQuery('Select Count(*) From #__facileforms_records Where name="FormName"');
return $db->loadResult()+1; ?>

3) Then I will compare these values with 2 hidden "Limit Elements"

My PHP db search report error 1035!
Thanks for helping
Gil

Hi Mihaela,
I've found solution based on one of your answer, 1 year and 4 month ago : "Number of specific values in form".

I've create a hidden element with a PHP script as value:
<?php $db = JFactory::getDBO();
$db->setQuery('Select Count(*) From #__facileforms_subrecords Where name="Formation" and value="Débutant"');
return $db->loadResult(); ?>

Should I use Select Count(*) or Select Count(id)?

Thanks, Gil

Hi,
PHP value search for exact value "Debutant", "Debutant & Confirme"
Is it possible to search for string in a record Element value?
(ex : "Deb" in "Debutant" would match 1)

Thks, Gil

Hello,

I will ask just to check. So far you have managed to get the count of records where "Debutant" was chosen in that radio group and also for "Debutant & Confirme". Is that right?

Regarding your last question, it is possible to do so.

You would have to use a LIKE operator in the database query. Here is a link www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_like.asp regarding that.

In your case, it would look like:
$db->setQuery('Select Count(*) From #__facileforms_subrecords Where name="Formation" and value LIKE "%Deb%"');

Let me know whether this is working as you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela

Hi

Yes job done...
I've used value below to count "Débutant": ... LIKE "%Début%" ... will count "Débutant" element records.

<?php $db = JFactory::getDBO();
$db->setQuery('Select Count(*) From #__facileforms_subrecords Where name="Formation" and value LIKE "%Début%"');
return $db->loadResult(); ?>
