Detailed Description

KeyMaker subclass which combines several values.

When the result is used for sorting, results are ordered by the first value. In the event of a tie, the second is used. If this is the same for both, the third is used, and so on. If reverse is true for a value, then the sort order for that value is reversed.

When used for collapsing, the documents will only be considered equal if all the values specified match. If none of the specified values are set then the generated key will be empty, so such documents won't be collapsed (which is consistent with the behaviour in the "collapse on a value" case). If you'd prefer that documents with none of the keys set are collapsed together, then you can set reverse for at least one of the values. Other than this, it isn't useful to set reverse for collapsing.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ MultiValueKeyMaker()

template<class Iterator >
Xapian::MultiValueKeyMaker::MultiValueKeyMaker ( Iterator  begin,
Iterator  end 
)
inline

Construct a MultiValueKeyMaker from a pair of iterators.

The iterators must be a begin/end pair returning Xapian::valueno (or a compatible type) when dereferenced.

Member Function Documentation

◆ add_value()

void Xapian::MultiValueKeyMaker::add_value ( Xapian::valueno  slot,
bool  reverse = false,
const std::string &  defvalue = std::string() 
)
inline

Add a value slot to the list to build a key from.

Parameters
slotThe value slot to add
reverseAdjust values from this slot to reverse their sort order (default: false)
defvalueValue to use for documents which don't have a value set in this slot (default: empty). This can be used to make such documents sort after all others by passing get_value_upper_bound(slot) + "x"
  • this is guaranteed to be greater than any value in this slot.

◆ operator()()

virtual std::string Xapian::MultiValueKeyMaker::operator() ( const Xapian::Document doc) const
virtual

Build a key string for a Document.

These keys can be used for sorting or collapsing matching documents.

Parameters
docDocument object to build a key for.

Implements Xapian::KeyMaker.
