Ezfind - Startswith letter

Thursday 09 June 2011 9:50:10 am - 3 replies


I need to create a filter which allows me to only list people that starts with a certain letter.

Basicaly it suppose to be a alphabetical listing of all people.

Any examples of an ezfind filter which can do this? is there an ezfind operator such as startsWith ?

Hi. You can use wildcards for that. something like

class/name:a*  should to the trick.

note that wildcards can only be used for start with searches, and not for end with searches.

This does however show results where one of the words starts with the letter.

Is there a way to restrict the query to only query items where the name starts with a.

If i search for class/name:a* it will return both john aldridge and adrian peters.

I would like only adrian peters to be returned.

i would try attr_name_s:a* then. 

actually what you are doing at the end is attr_name_t:a*, ezfind converts class/name to attr_name_t and that is sent to solr.
