IN queries with Castle ActiveRecord

Created 03 December 2007 00:00
Rather than do a String.Format, ActiveRecord has a Query.SetParameterList("Param", IList<Values>) method that can be used for IN statements. Doing it this way allows for query caching, as well as simpler code. In the following example, lstKeys is a List<int> object.
  string hql = String.Format("FROM MyObject o WHERE o.Pk.Key in (:keys) ORDER BY o.SomeColumn");

  SimpleQuery<MyObject> q = new SimpleQuery<MyObject>(hql);
  q.SetParameterList("keys", lstKeys);
  MyObject[] result = q.Execute();
