I'm still fairly new to LWC & Apex, so here goes:

I have a datatable and a lightning input field which is passing a searchKey variable to the wire decorator:

@wire(getAllChildRecordsByRecType, { field: '$fields',  parentObject: '$parentField',searchKey: '$searchKey' })

The desired result is for only the rows that contain the term entered to display, since the table is displaying a substantial number of records from one of the main objects we use in SF. We have an associated Apex class for which searchKey is an optional parameter. If it gets passed, the following additional clauses are added to the query:

String key = '\'%' + searchKey + '%\'';

String queryString = 'SELECT Id, Name, ' + field + ' FROM ' + parentFieldw + ' WHERE Opportunity.StageName = \'Unrealized\'';

    if(searchKey != null && searchKey != ''){
        queryString += 'AND '
        + '(Opportunity.Name LIKE ' + key + ' OR Opportunity.Investment_Record_Type_Name__c LIKE ' 
        + key + ' OR Member_Name_Formula__c LIKE ' + key + ' OR TeamMemberRole LIKE ' + key + ')';
    }

If I type in a term that is in one of the rows, In the web console I get the following error:

"duplicate field selected: Investment_Name_Form__c"

From the debug log in Salesforce, I can see that for some reason some of the columns in the query saved to queryString are getting duplicated:

SELECT Id, 
Name, 
Investment_Name_Form__c,
Investment_Record_Type__c,
Member_Name_Formula__c,
TeamMemberRole,
Investment_Name_Form__c,
Investment_Record_Type__c,
Member_Name_Formula__c,
TeamMemberRole 
FROM OpportunityTeamMember 
WHERE Opportunity.StageName = 'Unrealized' 
AND (Opportunity.Name LIKE '%D%' 
    OR Opportunity.Investment_Record_Type_Name__c LIKE '%D%' 
    OR Member_Name_Formula__c LIKE '%D%' 
    OR TeamMemberRole LIKE '%D%'
)

Is there a more rational way to ensure that the main query in queryString only gets run once when a change in searchKey triggers the wire decorator? Or am I missing something completely obvious? It ocurred to me before i went on vacation for the holidays that maybe I should only assign the select statement to queryString when the query is initially run to avoid it basically being concatenated with itself, but I wasn't sure if that would work.

Any help here would be awesome. I've seen this filtering implementation in a few places and am not sure what is different that is causing mine not to work as intended. Below is the full JS for the Datatable Component i'm working on:

  • Can you paste the full js file? I want to check how is fields being created? Jan 4, 2022 at 18:02
  • @Nagendra Singh Sure, i've edited my original question to include the complete JS for the component. Jan 4, 2022 at 18:17

Issue is this.fieldList never gets reinitialized. So if this already has a value and if get fields() { gets called again, this.fieldList will just start appending to its original list. There is no duplicate check available.

Instead of using fieldList as plain array []. Use a Set

fieldList = new Set();

And your fields getter will change to: (Change the name from fieldList to uniqueFields)

get fields() {
    this.colsArray = this.columns;
    if (this.moreColumns) {
        let moreFields = JSON.parse(this.moreColumns);
        this.colsArray = this.columns.concat(moreFields);
    }
    this.colsArray.forEach(column =>
        column.fieldName ? this.fieldList.add(column.fieldName) : undefined
    );
    return Array.from(this.fieldList).join(',');
}

This is to remove any duplicates which might get added in the fields variable from JS.

Idea is to just remove duplicates from the fieldList

    If you just heard that loud noise, it was my head hitting my desk. I don't even know why I didn't think of using a Set since I did the same thing to filter out dupes on a different component. Anyway, this works beatifully, thanks Nagendra! Jan 4, 2022 at 18:37
