Can someone help me figure out why this .form compiles yet the query to perform a search throws this error?
I have one entity manager,at startup "query and list set the table with all data from <splashtemplateda.Content> combobox and textfield and button(action) should config search specs and refresh table with searchQuey1 and searchList1 using the same entitymanager that the the start up query uses (the one that displays SELECT *.

Thanks

concatenate (textfield input to SQL) and create query.
the var partial is a entered as :partial in the properties window for the query of the created query searchQuery1.

@Action 
 <b>   public Task searchSplash() { 
        if (searchJComboBox1.getSelectedItem().equals("by Artist")) { 
            String like = searchJTextField1.getText();

            Query searchQuery1 = (Query) entityManager.createQuery(partial); 
            query.setParameter("like", "searchJTextField1.getText()"); 
            List<Content> contents = query.getResultList(); 
            
            //searchJTextField1.setText(getSearchQuery()); 

        } 
        if (searchJComboBox1.getSelectedItem().equals("by Song")) {

            Query searchQuery1 = (Query) entityManager.createQuery(partial);

that you have a syntax error in your query.

Yes. Thank you.
That is exactly what I am working on. I am trying to find a way to change the query details. with a getter(). I am now exploring a way to createNamedQuery(). and have one for each search condition. I have to find out the best way to build a query on the fly and use the correct getResultList().
the easiest way could be to use custom code but I am not sure what code that could be used for searchQuery1 = java.beans.Beans.isDesignTime() ? null : ((javax.persistence.EntityManager)null).createQuery(:partial); -Steve
