How can I use some MySQL builtin function in PHQL

Hi there, I want check some string in DB in lower case.

For example I want to run this query in MySQL DB using PHQL :

SELECT *
FROM  Users
WHERE  LOWER(username)  = 'john'

I don't want to use raw query.

How can I do that?

Thanks

You can use normal SQL Statements. But then you kind of bind your project to mySQL. If thats no problem for you, you can use something like that:

//$anyModel is just a Model() object.
$result = new \Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Resultset\Simple(null, $anyModel, $anyModel->getReadConnection()->query('DESCRIBE _auth_users;'));

Your solution can't help me. I don't want to dependent my project to a specific databse.

I was think that ORM handle this problem.

Thanks for your reply.
