how to get sql query from facade DB::table in laravel 5

Normally we fetch the data as below

$dataresult = DB::table(‘sometable’)
->select(‘sometable.column1’, ‘sometable.column2’, ‘sometable.column3’, ‘sometable.column4’, ‘sometable.column5’)

Now if we want to get the actaul query from $dataresult using $dataresult->toSql(); // it will not work

The solution for this is first prepare the query without the get() method and then call the toSql() method as below.

$dataQuery = DB::table(‘sometable’)
->select(‘sometable.column1’, ‘sometable.column2’, ‘sometable.column3’, ‘sometable.column4’, ‘sometable.column5’);

$dataQuery->toSql(); // this will give you the actual query

After that you can fetch the result as below.
$dataresult = $dataQuery->get();

select multiple column from multiple table in cakePHP

$markers = $this->Post->find(‘all’, array( ‘joins’ => array(
‘table’ => ‘cp_user’,
‘alias’ => ‘users’,
‘type’ => ‘left’,
‘foreignKey’ => false,
‘conditions’=> array(‘Post.postauthor =’)
‘conditions’=>’Post.poststatus = 1’,


This will generate the below query in mysql
SELECT `Post`.`postid`, `Post`.`postdate`, `Post`.`posttitle`, `Post`.`postmessage`, `Post`.`poststatus`, `Post`.`commentstatus`, `Post`.`commenttotal`, `Users`.`id`, `Users`.`firstname` FROM `cp_posts` AS `Post` left JOIN cp_user AS `users` ON (`Post`.`postauthor` = `users`.`id`) WHERE `Post`.`poststatus` = 1
