I want to collect the records from 10PM to 5AM of wishlist data. I have already created a module and not sure how to filter the records by this timeframe.

The wishlist table contains a field called Updated at. Now how can I use this field to filter the records?

Can anyone please guide me on that?

Any help will be appreciated.

Try this one "addFieldtofilter" Change date and column as per requirement

add this code also

protected $date;
public function __construct(
   \Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\DateTime $date,
) {
   $this->date = $date;
Then get value here of the undefined variable
$now = $this->date->gmtDate()->format('Y-m-d');
$fromDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime('-1 hour'));
$toDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime($now));
$things->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array(
   'from' => $fromDate,
   'to' => $toDate,
   'date' => true,
  • I'm getting error for this line, $toDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime(now()));

now() is a mysql function not php you can use it in sql query like this select now();.

Instead you can use date("Y-m-d H:i:s") with php to retrieve current date
