Add an OR condition to the WHERE statement in the query.
API Docs: xPDOQuery::orCondition()
void orCondition ( $conditions, [ $binding = null], [ $group = 0])
Grab all boxes with width 12 or 14.
$query = $xpdo->newQuery('Box'); $query->where(array( 'width' => 14, )); $query->orCondition(array( 'width' => 12, )); $boxes = $xpdo->getCollection('Box',$query);
The order you call the functions is important! The orCondition must come after the where method has been used.
Here's a more familiar example used to retrieve pages when they've got publish/unpublish dates set. This demonstrates an alternative syntax for an or condition. Normally, each place in the array supplied to the where method is joined together by a SQL "AND", but you can use the "OR" prefix on your column names to specify how groups of terms are joined together.
In the following example, a page must be published (1), and the pub_date must be either zero OR less than or equal to the current timestamp. The unpub_date must be either zero OR greater than current timestamp.
$criteria = $modx->newQuery('modResource'); $criteria->where(array( 'published' => 1, array( 'pub_date' => 0, 'OR:pub_date:<=' => time(), ), array( 'unpub_date' => 0, 'OR:unpub_date:>' => time(), ), ) );
Example With Joined Tables¶
Your filter parameters can reference fields in other tables.
$query = $modx->newQuery('modUser'); $query->innerJoin('modUserProfile','Profile'); $query->where(array( 'modUser.username' => $email, )); $query->orCondition(array( 'Profile.email' => $email, )); $user = $modx->getObject('modUser', $query);
The filter parameters may use the class name (as in modUser above) or the alias (as the Profile above).
