le( )

Refines a search or filter to match documents whose specified field value is less than or equal to the specified value.


The le() function refines a WixSearchBuilder to only match documents where the value of the specified field is less than or equal to the specified value.

le() only matches values of the same type. For example, a number value stored as a String type does not match the same number stored as a Number type.

If a field contains a number as a String, that value will be compared alphabetically and not numerically. Documents that do not have a value for the specified field are ranked lowest.

The following types of properties can be compared:

  • Number: Compares numerically.
  • Date: Compares JavaScript Date objects.
  • String: Compares lexicographically, so "Text" is less than or equal to "text" (because of the 'less than').

If other filters were previously used in the same WixSearchBuilder instance, le() is applied using an and condition with previously set filters.
