This is for the where clause of a FeatureLayer.selectFeatures.
I have used a variable for a field name, but this is the first time I've tried to get this to work with a field name coming from a join to a SQL Server database table. I know the single quote/double quote looks strange, but hard coded, this is the only way it works. I assume this is because the field names from the join contain %, so I needed to surround the field name with extra punctuation.
I started off with this and it works:
var whereClause = '"MCDS_DATAWAREHOUSE.EDAPPGISSCHLDIRT.%SCHOOL_DIRECTORY_DISTRICT.DCOUNTY"' + " LIKE '%" + currentCounty + "%'";
The database is different from test to production and I need to set some variables instead.
var countyFieldName = "MCDS_DATAWAREHOUSE.EDAPPGISSCHLDIRT.%SCHOOL_DIRECTORY_DISTRICT.DCOUNTY"; var whereClause = countyFieldName + " LIKE '%" + currentCounty + "%'";
This doesn't work. When you put in a breakpoint, the syntax looks OK. I'm using LIKE because DCOUNTY has trailing blanks in it and I have no control over this agency's database.
I would actually prefer to just set the variable as MCDS_DATAWAREHOUSE.EDAPPGISSCHLDIRT.%SCHOOL_DIRECTORY_DISTRICT, which is the database name and just concatenate the field names. I have this set earlier for my infoTemplates. I couldn't wrap my head around this:
var distFieldPath = "MCDS_DATAWAREHOUSE.EDAPPGISSCHLDIRT.%SCHOOL_DIRECTORY_DISTRICT"; var whereClause = distFieldName + ".DCOUNTY LIKE '%" + currentCounty + "%'";
That's not quite right, because I need to punctuate the field name.
