1 views_plugin_query_default.inc views_plugin_query_default::add_where($group, $field, $value = NULL, $operator = NULL)

Add a simple WHERE clause to the query. The caller is responsible for ensuring that all fields are fully qualified (TABLE.FIELD) and that the table already exists in the query.

      ->condition($field, $value, 'NOT IN')
      ->condition($field, $value, 'IS NULL')


$group: The WHERE group to add these to; groups are used to create AND/OR sections. Groups cannot be nested. Use 0 as the default group. If the group does not yet exist it will be created as an AND group.

$field: The name of the field to check.

$value: The value to test the field against. In most cases, this is a scalar. For more complex options, it is an array. The meaning of each element in the array is dependent on the $operator.

$operator: The comparison operator, such as =, <, or >=. It also accepts more complex options such as IN, LIKE, or BETWEEN. Defaults to IN if $value is an array = otherwise. If $field is a string you have to use 'formula' here.

The $field, $value and $operator arguments can also be passed in with a single DatabaseCondition object, like this:
