Property Details

condition property
public string $condition;

query condition. This refers to the WHERE clause in an SQL statement. For example, age>31 AND team=1.

distinct property (available since v1.0.9)
public boolean $distinct;

whether to select distinct rows of data only. If this is set true, the SELECT clause would be changed to SELECT DISTINCT.

group property
public string $group;

how to group the query results. This refers to the GROUP BY clause in an SQL statement. For example, 'projectID, teamID'.

having property (available since v1.0.1)
public string $having;

the condition to be applied with GROUP-BY clause. For example, 'SUM(revenue)<50000'.

join property
public string $join;

how to join with other tables. This refers to the JOIN clause in an SQL statement. For example, 'LEFT JOIN users ON users.id=authorID'.

limit property
public integer $limit;

maximum number of records to be returned. If less than 0, it means no limit.

offset property
public integer $offset;

zero-based offset from where the records are to be returned. If less than 0, it means starting from the beginning.

order property
public string $order;

how to sort the query results. This refers to the ORDER BY clause in an SQL statement.

params property
public array $params;

list of query parameter values indexed by parameter placeholders. For example, array(':name'=>'Dan', ':age'=>31).

select property
public mixed $select;

the columns being selected. This refers to the SELECT clause in an SQL statement. The property can be either a string (column names separated by commas) or an array of column names. Defaults to '*', meaning all columns.

Method Details

__construct() method
public void __construct(array $data=array ( ))
$data array criteria initial property values (indexed by property name)

Constructor.

addColumnCondition() method (available since v1.0.10)
public CDbCriteria addColumnCondition(array $columns, string $columnOperator='AND', string $operator='AND')
$columns array list of column names and values to be matched (name=>value)
$columnOperator string the operator to concatenate multiple column matching condition. Defaults to 'AND'.
$operator string the operator used to concatenate the new condition with the existing one. Defaults to 'AND'.
{return} CDbCriteria the criteria object itself

Appends a condition for matching the given list of column values. The generated condition will be concatenated to the existing condition via the specified operator which defaults to 'AND'. The condition is generated by matching each column and the corresponding value.

addCondition() method (available since v1.0.9)
public CDbCriteria addCondition(mixed $condition, string $operator='AND')
$condition mixed the new condition. It can be either a string or an array of strings.
$operator string the operator to join different conditions. Defaults to 'AND'.
{return} CDbCriteria the criteria object itself

Appends a condition to the existing condition. The new condition and the existing condition will be concatenated via the specified operator which defaults to 'AND'. The new condition can also be an array. In this case, all elements in the array will be concatenated together via the operator. This method handles the case when the existing condition is empty. After calling this method, the condition property will be modified.

addInCondition() method (available since v1.0.10)
public CDbCriteria addInCondition(string $column, array $values, string $operator='AND')
$column string the column name (or a valid SQL expression)
$values array list of values that the column value should be in
$operator string the operator used to concatenate the new condition with the existing one. Defaults to 'AND'.
{return} CDbCriteria the criteria object itself

Appends an IN condition to the existing condition. The IN condition and the existing condition will be concatenated via the specified operator which defaults to 'AND'. The IN condition is generated by using the SQL IN operator which requires the specified column value to be among the given list of values.

addSearchCondition() method (available since v1.0.10)
public CDbCriteria addSearchCondition(string $column, string $keyword, boolean $escape=true, string $operator='AND')
$column string the column name (or a valid SQL expression)
$keyword string the search keyword. This interpretation of the keyword is affected by the next parameter.
$escape boolean whether the keyword should be escaped if it contains characters % or _. When this parameter is true (default), the special characters % (matches 0 or more characters) and _ (matches a single character) will be escaped, and the keyword will be surrounded with a % character on both ends. When this parameter is false, the keyword will be directly used for matching without any change.
$operator string the operator used to concatenate the new condition with the existing one. Defaults to 'AND'.
{return} CDbCriteria the criteria object itself

Appends a search condition to the existing condition. The search condition and the existing condition will be concatenated via the specified operator which defaults to 'AND'. The search condition is generated using the SQL LIKE operator with the given column name and search keyword.

mergeWith() method (available since v1.0.5)
public void mergeWith(CDbCriteria $criteria, boolean $useAnd=true)
$criteria CDbCriteria the criteria to be merged with.
$useAnd boolean whether to use 'AND' to merge condition and having options. If false, 'OR' will be used instead. Defaults to 'AND'. This parameter has been available since version 1.0.6.

Merges with another criteria. In general, the merging makes the resulting criteria more restrictive. For example, if both criterias have conditions, they will be 'AND' together. Also, the criteria passed as the parameter takes precedence in case two options cannot be merged (e.g. LIMIT, OFFSET).

toArray() method (available since v1.0.6)
public array toArray()
{return} array the array representation of the criteria
