First of all, thanks for the good work. It was very usefull. Your Test table attributes are still in template, so they are causing an exception in View action. I suggest you to use attribute labels instead column names in export templates. I've done it with


Not sure if it is good practice, but it worked :) Another suggestion is to consider using Eexcelview to export Excell. And the last problem is with access rules. If guest tries to access action which requires login, the whole login page is rendered below index.I solved it by using this article loginRequiredAjaxResponse.

Minor Fix

Hello, I noticed that you have used "href='javascript:return;'" for the action links, which throws a js error. (although functionality is not affected) I recommend using "href='javascript:void(0);'" instead, as it is cleaner.

looks nice... but

Looking at the generated demo code in github. While this looks nice visually, I do not like how it looks in code.

You have presentation logic in controllers that should be in views. Views may need some love from DRY principle as at the moment it seems ajax and non-ajax versions are completely standalone (i may be wrong here)

Session for pdf/excel generation saves every time even tho users rarely generate pdf/excel. I do not understand why you are doing the lenghty Criteria setup (which is vulnerable to SQL injection btw) and Ajaxtest::model()->findAll($criteria); when you could do just $model->findAll();

Im sorry if i seem too negative, that is not my intention. Take it as friendly and free code review. Keep going on what you are doing.

@salsero:Input validation

@salsero:Input validation is working fine when both creating and updating records but whats the thing is when you try to update a record it is not showing you the validated errors.but if you are creating a new record it will show you the validated errors.

i did spend so many times to fix this issue,but was not able to figure out why this validated errors are not showing on the form when record updation.Please let me know if any of you guys are able to fix this issue.thanks

@skworden:thanks for the report i have made this change in download file and git repo. too.

and you can use bootstrap like you do usually no change in that but make sure that you are using the latest prefix "Tb" for bootstrap widegts.

                        'class'=>'ext.bootstrap.components.Bootstrap', // assuming you extracted bootstrap under extensions
                        'coreCss'=>true, // whether to register the Bootstrap core CSS (bootstrap.min.css), defaults to true
                        'responsiveCss'=>false, // whether to register the Bootstrap responsive CSS (bootstrap-responsive.min.css), default to false
                                              // Optionally you can configure the "global" plugins (button, popover, tooltip and transition)
                                              // To prevent a plugin from being loaded set it to false as demonstrated below
                                        'transition'=>false, // disable CSS transitions
                                               'selector'=>'a.tooltip', // bind the plugin tooltip to anchor tags with the 'tooltip' class
                                                         'placement'=>'bottom', // place the tooltips below instead

What bootstrap is this intended for?

I was just wondering which bootstrap this is intended to be used with?

I use this boostsrap. So you must register it in the top of all your view files or it wont work because it isn't preloaded so your page load times are faster but it has less extensions.


<?php Yii::app()->bootstrap->register(); ?>

Update bootstrapgenerator.php


Alias "application.extensions.giiplus.bootstrap.BootstrapCode" is invalid. Make sure it points to an existing PHP file and the file is readable.

need to change the line in bootstapgenterator.php

to use this ext. name

public $codeModel = 'application.extensions.ajaxgii.bootstrap.BootstrapCode';

seems like it will work.

Hi i havn't tried with Yiibooster but seems like it will work with yii booster too,ie you can use this "ajaxgii" folder instead of that gii dir inside Yiibooster also i have used most of the Yii-bootstrap widgets inside this code generator.so i dont see any issue on it.
