How to filter product price range using checkbox?

Last Modified: 2018-09-29
I created product price filter using checkbox in php. I have 3 price range 2000-3000, 3000-4000, 4000-5000. If user click one checkbox its work, but user click more than one checkbox getting error (Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in D:\xamp\htdocs\aasopalav\controller\filter_saree.php on line 45).

here is my forntend code
<ul class="list-style-6 margin-50px-bottom text-small">
      <li><input type="checkbox" value="2000 AND 3000" class="item_filter price">2000 - 3000</li>
      <li><input type="checkbox" value="3000 AND 4000" class="item_filter price">3000 - 4000</li>
      <li><input type="checkbox" value="4000 AND 5000" class="item_filter price">4000 - 5000</li>

and here is my back end code to filter
   $price = isset($_REQUEST['price'])?$_REQUEST['price']:"";

   $sql = "SELECT * FROM wm_products WHERE pro_live='N'";
                  $price =implode("','",$price);
                  $sql  .= " and pro_price between $price";

$result = $conn->query($sql);
      if($result->num_rows > 0){
            while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()){
                       .........result which checkbox selected

In sort my select query created like this ( SELECT * FROM `wm_products` WHERE pro_live='N' AND pro_price BETWEEN 2000 AND 3000, 4000 AND 5000 )

Hi Milind,

CheckBoxes allow you to check more than one.  Unless you take steps to manage what happens when more 1 are selected you can get odd behavior like you're seeing now.

Perhaps you want radio buttons, where only 1 button at a time can be selected?

But how can implode checkbox value for between systax for this query

AND (pro_price BETWEEN 2000 AND 3000
OR pro_price BETWEEN 3000 AND 5000
OR pro_price BETWEEN 4000 AND 5000)

My query is

$sql = "SELECT * FROM wm_products WHERE ";
      $price =implode("','",$price);
      $sql  .= " and pro_price between $price";

You would just need to look at all the check boxes, and run through a for loop.

If the box is checked, add to the conditions.
