CategoryHandler.GetCategorizedItems vs. GetQueryResult



I have some code that I would think works in a similar way - but turns out to give me different outpu. I am now quite confused and would relly like some help here!

Code A:
CategoryCollection categories = new CategoryCollection();
this.TheRepeater.DataSource =
CategoryHandler.GetCategorizedItems(typeof(Club), categories, page, pagesPerPage, out totalItems);

Returns wanted result.

Code B:
ClubQuery clubQuery = new ClubQuery();
clubQuery.Categories = new CategoryCollectionCriterion();
clubQuery.Categories.Containing = new CategoryCriterion();
clubQuery.Categories.Containing.ID = new IntegerCriterion();
clubQuery.Categories.Containing.ID.Value = categoryId;
this.TheRepeater.DataSource = ClubHandler.GetQueryResult(clubQuery, page, pagesPerPage, out totalItems);

Does not return anything.

Hi Jonas,

It should result in the same data being returned, except for the matter of sorting.

Have you verified what the value of totalItems is after running GetQueryResult?

Hmm... the ClubQuery method seems to work rather randomized for me. Exactly the same query on the same page produces different results. If I search using one criteria, A, then searches using another criteria, and finally search using A again, A produces different result. Is this a cache issue perhaps?

There is a cache issue in the query system that has been resolved and will be fixed with an update in a near future. This sounds like the problem in question.

You could work around this problem by clearing the query cache before executing the query by calling QueryHandler.RemoveQueryResultCache(query);

Where is this method located?

As in wich dll? We have searched for this quite extensively, but not found it.


We ended up using:

StarSuite.Core.Cache.CacheHandler.RemoveCachedObject(new string[] { "StarCommunityQueries", "Query" });

wich is quite inefficient and dirty, but atleast it works.
