I've been playing around with a simple database with two tables: User and Profile. Profile has a foreign key, which points to the User table. Now what I wanted to achieve is a profile view, where I can display both data from the User and Profile tables.
I've noticed that there is this nice widget CDetailView, but the problem is with the attributes. E.g.
$this->widget('zii.widgets.CDetailView', array( 'data'=>$profile, 'attributes'=>array( 'fname', 'sname', ), ));
displays the Profile model attributes fine (according to the attributeLabels() method). Now if I want to access the User table through the ActiveRecord relation, the attribute labels aren't as they should be.
$this->widget('zii.widgets.CDetailView', array( 'data'=>$profile, 'attributes'=>array( 'fname', 'sname', 'user.username' ), ));
displays User Username instead of the attribute label configured in the User model.
I would appreciate any help with this. Or maybe I'm trying to do too much with that widget? Is there a better way? A simple HTML table with php displaying the values from models works, but I wanted something more elegant and flexible.
Thanks for your help,
