Find by partial match


When I’m searching in browser or javascript and I do:

title = ‘Black Floor’
(It returns something)

but when I do:
title = ‘%Floor Black%’
title = ‘%Floor%’
(it does not return anything)

I’m doing something wrong? Why not work?

Thank You.

Try this instead:

title LIKE ‘%Floor%’

Thank you, it worked.

the example of documentation is:
var contactStorage = Backendless.Persistence.of( Contact );

var dataQuery = {

condition: "name = '%Jo%'"


var myContact = contactStorage.find( dataQuery );

Hi Raul,

Could you please let me know the URL address of the page in the documentation where you found it?



And then there’s this, remember? (Backendless.FileService.saveFile() not work)
