DateMetadata Criterion

The DateMetadata Search Criterion searches for content based on the date when it was created or last modified.

Arguments

  • target - indicated if creation or modification date should be queried, either DateMetadata::CREATED or DateMetadata::MODIFIED
  • operator - Operator constant (IN, EQ, GT, GTE, LT, LTE, BETWEEN)
  • value - indicating the date(s) that should be matched, provided as a UNIX timestamp (or array of timestamps)

$query->query = new Criterion\DateMetadata(
    Criterion\DateMetadata::CREATED,
    Criterion\Operator::BETWEEN,
    [1576800000, 1576972800]
);

    ]
);
