Laravel-5 'LIKE' equivalent (Eloquent)


Question

I'm using the below code to pull some results from the database with Laravel 5.

BookingDates::where('email', Input::get('email'))->orWhere('name', 'like', Input::get('name'))->get()

However, the orWhereLike doesn't seem to be matching any results. What does that code produce in terms of MySQL statements?

I'm trying to achieve something like the following:

select * from booking_dates where email='[email protected]' or name like '%John%'

Accepted Answer

If you want to see what is run in the database use dd(DB::getQueryLog()) to see what queries were run.

Try this

BookingDates::where('email', Input::get('email'))
    ->orWhere('name', 'like', '%' . Input::get('name') . '%')->get();

$data = DB::table('borrowers')
        ->join('loans', 'borrowers.id', '=', 'loans.borrower_id')
        ->select('borrowers.*', 'loans.*')   
        ->where('loan_officers', 'like', '%' . $officerId . '%')
        ->where('loans.maturity_date', '<', date("Y-m-d"))
        ->get();

I have scopes for this, hope it help somebody.

public function scopeWhereLike($query, $column, $value)
{
    return $query->where($column, 'like', '%'.$value.'%');
}

public function scopeOrWhereLike($query, $column, $value)
{
    return $query->orWhere($column, 'like', '%'.$value.'%');
}

Usage:

$result = BookingDates::whereLike('email', $email)->orWhereLike('name', $name)->get();

I think this is better, following the good practices of passing parameters to the query:

BookingDates::whereRaw('email = ? or name like ?', [$request->email,"%{$request->name}%"])->get();

You can see it in the documentation, Laravel 5.5.

You can also use the Laravel scout and make it easier with search. Here is the documentation.
