EXCLUDING A VALUE From a Checklist
Can someone please tell me how to exclude a value from a checklist? I'll explain:
I have a list of Stallions. Each stallion has a checkbox list so mark all things relevant to that stallion. ( ie: New, Hunter, Jumper, Dressage, Pony, Archived )
I've been using this code for the listing to just list one value from the checklist (ie: Archived ) - which creates a list of all Archived Stallions on a single page.
<?php $count = 0; ?>
<?php foreach ($stallion_listRecords as $record): ?>
<?php if (strpos($record['status'],"\tArchived\t") !== false) : ?>
How would I go about doing this same thing but in reverse? I'd like a page that included all other values that have been checked but NOT any with the value of Archived. There are about 15 checkboxes and they can change so that's why I wanted to to an exclusion of "Archived" rather than just list all of the values I want to include.
Any thoughts? Thank you! Tina
Can I also use the WHERE statement to include just one value?
'where' => 'status IS "%Archived%"',
Sure! You can use:
'status LIKE "%Archived%"'
Note that the "%Archived%" is a wildcard selection pattern. Which means strings like "abc123Archived" or "Archivedabc123" will also match the pattern. Normally it won't be a problem but in case if it creates confusion you may want to change it to "%\tArchived\t%".
