Struct diesel::query_builder::DeleteStatement[][src]

pub struct DeleteStatement<T, U, Ret = NoReturningClause> { /* fields omitted */ }
Expand description

Represents a SQL DELETE statement.

The type parameters on this struct represent:

  • T: The table we are deleting from.
  • U: The WHERE clause of this query. The exact types used to represent this are private, and you should not make any assumptions about them.
  • Ret: The RETURNING clause of this query. The exact types used to represent this are private. You can safely rely on the default type representing the lack of a RETURNING clause.

Implementations

Adds the given predicate to the WHERE clause of the statement being constructed.

If there is already a WHERE clause, the predicate will be appended with AND. There is no difference in behavior between delete(table.filter(x)) and delete(table).filter(x).

Example

let deleted_rows = diesel::delete(users)
    .filter(name.eq("Sean"))
    .execute(connection);
assert_eq!(Ok(1), deleted_rows);

let expected_names = vec!["Tess".to_string()];
let names = users.select(name).load(connection);

assert_eq!(Ok(expected_names), names);

Boxes the WHERE clause of this delete statement.

This is useful for cases where you want to conditionally modify a query, but need the type to remain the same. The backend must be specified as part of this. It is not possible to box a query and have it be useable on multiple backends.

A boxed query will incur a minor performance penalty, as the query builder can no longer be inlined by the compiler. For most applications this cost will be minimal.

Example

let mut query = diesel::delete(users)
    .into_boxed();

if params["sean_has_been_a_jerk"] {
    query = query.filter(name.eq("Sean"));
}

let deleted_rows = query.execute(connection)?;
assert_eq!(1, deleted_rows);

let expected_names = vec!["Tess"];
let names = users.select(name).load::<String>(connection)?;

assert_eq!(expected_names, names);

Specify what expression is returned after execution of the delete.

Examples

Deleting a record:

let deleted_name = diesel::delete(users.filter(name.eq("Sean")))
    .returning(name)
    .get_result(connection);
assert_eq!(Ok("Sean".to_string()), deleted_name);
