    DataObject::get() on custom class Link to this post

    Hey guys,

    We've created a class which extends page called DetailPropertyPage. It just has loads of extra frields and some one-to-many relationships to Images and DataObjects.

    I'm writting a custom search function at the moment to return matching DataObjects.

    Here is my code:

    $properties = DataObject::get('DetailPropertyPage', $queryString, '`DetailPropertyPage`.`Price` ASC', '', '0, 30');

    I know that $queryString is correct because if I paste it into phpMyAdmin then I get results but it always turns up NULL in SilverStripe. Am I using the wrong caller class?

    Just in case it is useful, heres the typical contents for $queryString:

    `DetailPropertyPage`.`Status`='S' and `DetailPropertyPage`.`PropertyType`='Terraced' and `DetailPropertyPage`.`Bedrooms`>=1 and `DetailPropertyPage`.`Price`>=50000 and `DetailPropertyPage`.`Price`<=150000

    Using table names directly in the DataObject get is a little tricky as the table name for pages will actually be TableName_Live rather than TableName when viewing the published site. See https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-forum/blob/master/code/ForumHolder.php#L345 for an example of the logic you need to include to get the right table for the query.

    PROTIP you can use ?showqueries=1 to see the SQL queries SilverStripe is running. Use that to grab the SQL query running and double check that.
