Property Details

classMap property (available since v1.1.5)
public static array $classMap;

class map used by the Yii autoloading mechanism. The array keys are the class names and the array values are the corresponding class file paths.

enableIncludePath property (available since v1.1.8)
public static boolean $enableIncludePath;

whether to rely on PHP include path to autoload class files. Defaults to true. You may set this to be false if your hosting environment doesn't allow changing the PHP include path, or if you want to append additional autoloaders to the default Yii autoloader.

Imports a class or a directory.

Importing a class is like including the corresponding class file. The main difference is that importing a class is much lighter because it only includes the class file when the class is referenced the first time.

Importing a directory is equivalent to adding a directory into the PHP include path. If multiple directories are imported, the directories imported later will take precedence in class file searching (i.e., they are added to the front of the PHP include path).

Path aliases are used to import a class or directory. For example,

  • application.components.GoogleMap: import the GoogleMap class.
  • application.components.*: import the components directory.


The same path alias can be imported multiple times, but only the first time is effective. Importing a directory does not import any of its subdirectories.

Starting from version 1.1.5, this method can also be used to import a class in namespace format (available for PHP 5.3 or above only). It is similar to importing a class in path alias format, except that the dot separator is replaced by the backslash separator. For example, importing application\components\GoogleMap is similar to importing application.components.GoogleMap. The difference is that the former class is using qualified name, while the latter unqualified.

Note, importing a class in namespace format requires that the namespace corresponds to a valid path alias once backslash characters are replaced with dot characters. For example, the namespace application\components must correspond to a valid path alias application.components.

log() method
public static void log(string $msg, string $level='info', string $category='application')
$msg string message to be logged
$level string level of the message (e.g. 'trace', 'warning', 'error'). It is case-insensitive.
$category string category of the message (e.g. 'system.web'). It is case-insensitive.
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#469 (show)
public static function log($msg,$level=CLogger::LEVEL_INFO,$category='application')
{
    if(
self::$_logger===null)
        
self::$_logger=new CLogger;
    if(
YII_DEBUG && YII_TRACE_LEVEL>&& $level!==CLogger::LEVEL_PROFILE)
    {
        
$traces=debug_backtrace();
        
$count=0;
        foreach(
$traces as $trace)
        {
            if(isset(
$trace['file'],$trace['line']) && strpos($trace['file'],YII_PATH)!==0)
            {
                
$msg.="\nin ".$trace['file'].' ('.$trace['line'].')';
                if(++
$count>=YII_TRACE_LEVEL)
                    break;
            }
        }
    }
    
self::$_logger->log($msg,$level,$category);
}

Logs a message. Messages logged by this method may be retrieved via CLogger::getLogs and may be recorded in different media, such as file, email, database, using CLogRouter.

powered() method
public static string powered()
{return} string a string that can be displayed on your Web page showing Powered-by-Yii information
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#553 (show)
public static function powered()
{
    return 
Yii::t('yii','Powered by {yii}.', array('{yii}'=>'<a href="http://www.yiiframework.com/" rel="external">Yii Framework</a>'));
}

Returns a string that can be displayed on your Web page showing Powered-by-Yii information

registerAutoloader() method
public static void registerAutoloader(callback $callback, boolean $append=false)
$callback callback a valid PHP callback (function name or array($className,$methodName)).
$append boolean whether to append the new autoloader after the default Yii autoloader. Be careful using this option as it will disable autoloading via include path when set to true. After this the Yii autoloader can not rely on loading classes via simple include anymore and you have to import all classes explicitly.
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#630 (show)
public static function registerAutoloader($callback$append=false)
{
    if(
$append)
    {
        
self::$enableIncludePath=false;
        
spl_autoload_register($callback);
    }
    else
    {
        
spl_autoload_unregister(array('YiiBase','autoload'));
        
spl_autoload_register($callback);
        
spl_autoload_register(array('YiiBase','autoload'));
    }
}

Registers a new class autoloader. The new autoloader will be placed before autoload and after any other existing autoloaders.

setApplication() method
public static void setApplication(CApplication $app)
$app CApplication the application instance. If this is null, the existing application singleton will be removed.
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#147 (show)
public static function setApplication($app)
{
    if(
self::$_app===null || $app===null)
        
self::$_app=$app;
    else
        throw new 
CException(Yii::t('yii','Yii application can only be created once.'));
}

Stores the application instance in the class static member. This method helps implement a singleton pattern for CApplication. Repeated invocation of this method or the CApplication constructor will cause the throw of an exception. To retrieve the application instance, use app().

setLogger() method (available since v1.1.8)
public static void setLogger(CLogger $logger)
$logger CLogger the logger object.
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#544 (show)
public static function setLogger($logger)
{
    
self::$_logger=$logger;
}

Sets the logger object.

setPathOfAlias() method
public static void setPathOfAlias(string $alias, string $path)
$alias string alias to the path
$path string the path corresponding to the alias. If this is null, the corresponding path alias will be removed.
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#384 (show)
public static function setPathOfAlias($alias,$path)
{
    if(empty(
$path))
        unset(
self::$_aliases[$alias]);
    else
        
self::$_aliases[$alias]=rtrim($path,'\\/');
}

Create a path alias. Note, this method neither checks the existence of the path nor normalizes the path.

t() method
public static string t(string $category, string $message, array $params=array ( ), string $source=NULL, string $language=NULL)
$category string message category. Please use only word letters. Note, category 'yii' is reserved for Yii framework core code use. See CPhpMessageSource for more interpretation about message category.
$message string the original message
$params array parameters to be applied to the message using strtr. The first parameter can be a number without key. And in this case, the method will call CChoiceFormat::format to choose an appropriate message translation. Starting from version 1.1.6 you can pass parameter for CChoiceFormat::format or plural forms format without wrapping it with array. This parameter is then available as {n} in the message translation string.
$source string which message source application component to use. Defaults to null, meaning using 'coreMessages' for messages belonging to the 'yii' category and using 'messages' for the rest messages.
$language string the target language. If null (default), the application language will be used.
{return} string the translated message
Source Code: framework/YiiBase.php#582 (show)
public static function t($category,$message,$params=array(),$source=null,$language=null)
{
    if(
self::$_app!==null)
    {
        if(
$source===null)
            
$source=($category==='yii'||$category==='zii')?'coreMessages':'messages';
        if((
$source=self::$_app->getComponent($source))!==null)
            
$message=$source->translate($category,$message,$language);
    }
    if(
$params===array())
        return 
$message;
    if(!
is_array($params))
        
$params=array($params);
    if(isset(
$params[0])) // number choice
    
{
        if(
strpos($message,'|')!==false)
        {
            if(
strpos($message,'#')===false)
            {
                
$chunks=explode('|',$message);
                
$expressions=self::$_app->getLocale($language)->getPluralRules();
                if(
$n=min(count($chunks),count($expressions)))
                {
                    for(
$i=0;$i<$n;$i++)
                        
$chunks[$i]=$expressions[$i].'#'.$chunks[$i];

                    
$message=implode('|',$chunks);
                }
            }
            
$message=CChoiceFormat::format($message,$params[0]);
        }
        if(!isset(
$params['{n}']))
            
$params['{n}']=$params[0];
        unset(
$params[0]);
    }
    return 
$params!==array() ? strtr($message,$params) : $message;
}

Translates a message to the specified language. This method supports choice format (see CChoiceFormat), i.e., the message returned will be chosen from a few candidates according to the given number value. This feature is mainly used to solve plural format issue in case a message has different plural forms in some languages.

Yii::t() example

As an example can say more some times:

Yii::t(
    'category',
    'The error: {errorCode} was encountered.',
    array(
        '{errorCode}'=>$errorCode
    )
);
