I'm trying to filter features in OpenLayers when moving a JQueryUI slider. It works like this:

EDIT: full files available here on GitHub.

JQueryUI slider

When moving the slider cursor, minSelection and maxSelection values are defined. I need to show only features with minSelection < height < maxSelection. I've defined a filter that takes the current min and maxSelection and makes a query on the WFS, applying it to the vector layer (curlayer is the current vector layer object):

heightFilter = new OpenLayers.Filter.Comparison({
    type: OpenLayers.Filter.Comparison.BETWEEN,
    property: 'height',
    lowerBoundary: minSelection,
    upperBoundary: maxSelection
});

curlayer.filter = heightFilter;
curlayer.refresh({force: true})

OpenLayers.js

var _projObj = {
    wgs84 : new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:4326'),
    mercator : new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:900913'),
    osm_wms : new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:3857')
};

uses_layer = new OpenLayers.Layer.Vector("US Layer", {
    strategies : [new OpenLayers.Strategy.Fixed()],
    projection : _projObj.wgs84,
    visibility : true,
    displayInLayerSwitcher : false,
    protocol : new OpenLayers.Protocol.WFS({
        version : '1.0.0',
        url : 'http://46.105.19.68/cgi-bin/mapserv?map=/home/fradeve/public_html/ark-oia/ark-scrmap/wfs.map&service=WFS',
        featureType : USType
    })
});

Mapserver

The XHTTP Post response

Here is what I get when moving around the slider cursor:

So...

Where is the error? Everything seems fine to me...

If setting a DEBUG 5 on both your LAYER and MAP objects, and also add CONFIG MS_ERRORFILE "ms_error.log" in your MAP object. You should be able to see more about what's going on.

You should be able to see the temp mapfile being created to execute your query. You should also be able to see the postgresql query built to fetch your records, which you could copy/paste in psql/pgadmin to see its actual result.

Also, please note that OpenLayers and MapServer both have mailing list you could register to and post your questions there. You might get faster replies that way.

HTH,

Alexandre
