PHP Issue rounding variables?

I can’t for the life of me figure out what is going on here, it seems that the PDO where clause is rounding down numbers!!???

I have this:

$gasql = 'SELECT * FROM modx_inventory_gage_long  WHERE id = '.$ga.' ;';
$gas = $this->modx->query($gasql);
while($ga = $gas->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
     $this->modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'ga = ' . print_r($ga, TRUE));
     $min = $ga['min'];
     $max = $ga['max'];
}
$arrayWhere[] = array('ga:>=' => $min);
$arrayWhere[] = array('ga:<=' => $max);

it logs this:

(
[id] => 73
[ga] => 0
[min] => 2.250
[max] => 2.490
[display] => 2.250
)

Which is correct… a little later on:

$criteria->where($arrayWhere);

$criteria->limit($limit, $offset);

$criteria->leftJoin('InventoryReserve','InventoryReserve');

$criteria->prepare();

$this->modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'search SQL = ' . $criteria->toSQL());

$tags = $this->modx->getCollection('InventoryData', $criteria);

Pretty normal, right? Well this is what I get in the logs:

SELECT <<a bunch of stuff>> FROM `modx_gssi_inventory_data` AS `InventoryData` 
LEFT JOIN `modx_gssi_inventory_reserve` `InventoryReserve` ON `InventoryData`.`id` =  `InventoryReserve`.`tag_id` 
WHERE  
	( `InventoryData`.`id` >= 1 
	AND  ( `InventoryData`.`product_category` IN ('STAINLESS') AND `InventoryData`.`material_type` IN ('BAR','PIPE','TUBE','SEAMLESS-TUBE','WIRE') )  
	AND `InventoryData`.`ga` >= 2 AND `InventoryData`.`ga` <= 2 
	)  
ORDER BY gage ASC, width ASC LIMIT 33

!!! notice the inventorydata.ga both have the same value?

am I just staring right at this or is something done wrong?

Seems to have been an issue before:

Maybe a wrong dbtype / phptype combination in your schema.
I tried some combinations but couldn’t reproduce your problem.

I know bizarre right?? The schema looks fine and is nearly identical to another table that does not do this:

<object class="InventoryGageLong" table="inventory_gage_long" extends="xPDOSimpleObject">
        <field key="ga" dbtype="int" precision="4" phptype="integer" null="false" />
        <field key="min" dbtype="decimal" precision="4,3" phptype="float" null="true" />
        <field key="max" dbtype="decimal" precision="4,3" phptype="float" null="true" />
        <field key="display" dbtype="decimal" precision="4,3" phptype="float" null="true" />
    </object>

As for the database - it looks fine as well, I believe I actually just copied the other (working) table and added the one extra field.

CREATE TABLE `modx_gssi_inventory_gage_long` (
	`id` INT(4) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
	`ga` INT(4) NOT NULL,
	`min` DECIMAL(4,3) UNSIGNED ZEROFILL NULL DEFAULT NULL,
	`max` DECIMAL(4,3) UNSIGNED ZEROFILL NULL DEFAULT NULL,
	`display` DECIMAL(4,3) UNSIGNED NULL DEFAULT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
)
COLLATE='utf8_general_ci'
ENGINE=InnoDB
ROW_FORMAT=COMPACT
AUTO_INCREMENT=90
;

Quite mystified at this point!

If I dump my criteria array just before I prepare it and getCollection the ga values are correct.

arrayWhere = Array
(
    [0] => Array
        (
            [id:>=] => 1
        )
    [1] => Array
        (
            [product_category:IN] => Array
                (
                    [0] => STAINLESS
                )
        )
    [2] => Array
        (
            [ga:>=] => 0.017
        )
    [3] => Array
        (
            [ga:<=] => 0.021
        )
)

try to use phptype string

It was worth a try - but no dice :frowning:

$gage = $this->modx->getObject('InventoryGageLong',$ga);

$this->modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'ga/type/min-val = ' . $ga .' ' . gettype($gage->get('min')).' '.$gage->get('min'));

$this->modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'ga/type/max-val = ' . $ga .' ' . gettype($gage->get('max')).' '.$gage->get('max'));

settype($gage->get('min'),'double');

settype($gage->get('max'),'double');

$this->modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'ga/type/min-val = ' . $ga .' ' . gettype($gage->get('min')).' '.$gage->get('min'));

$this->modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'ga/type/max-val = ' . $ga .' ' . gettype($gage->get('max')).' '.$gage->get('max'));

$arrayWhere[] = array('ga:>=' => $gage->get('min'));

$arrayWhere[] = array('ga:<=' => $gage->get('max'));

/model/liveinventory.class.php : 299) ga/type/min-val = 54 double 2.25
/model/liveinventory.class.php : 301) ga/type/max-val = 54 double 2.49
/model/liveinventory.class.php : 307) ga/type/min-val = 54 double 2.25
/model/liveinventory.class.php : 309) ga/type/max-val = 54 double 2.49

`AND `InventoryData`.`ga` >= 2 AND `InventoryData`.`ga` <= 2 )

I could reproduce the behavior on my webserver.
It seems the binding in the xPDOQueryCondition gets assigned the wrong type. PDO::PARAM_INT instead of PDO::PARAM_STR.

The query works if I add 'float' to this array.

protected $_quotable= array ('string', 'password', 'date', 'datetime', 'timestamp', 'time', 'json', 'array', 'float');

But it is probably not a good idea to change the MODX core code. :wink:

This post solved my problem, though as I understand it is a PDO issue and not modx, it will get fixed when PDO gets updated. from the sounds of it PDO will be a dependency for modx 3 and installed via composer…

This IS a change that needs to be made to the xPDO core code. See recent discussion at https://github.com/modxcms/xpdo/pull/25 for more information. It seems this issue has sat unresolved and unintentionally ignored for some time.

By the way, setting the phptype to string in the xpdo schema can temporarily work around the problem, but may prevent the use of other float-specific features in xpdo for that field.
