Yii 1.1: How to Create Pdf Report / Excel Report By Using Parameters (From - Until)


Asslamualaikum Wr.Wb Hello I'm Fahmi Azain i will share wiki tutorial about Creating Pdf Report / Excel Report by using Parms / Parameters.

First you should follow the requirements below:

For Pdf Report : install pdf report extension in your yii application. and you must to understand to create that report.

For Excel Report : install excel report extension in your yii application. or you can use the default report yii.

after finishing about those requirements now you can read this wiki.

Okay Let's begin

Please create new function in your models or you can look at below:

In your model | e.g. : models/Items.php

public function getMyreport()
        $sql="SELECT * FROM items where CREATED_DATE >= '$from' and CREATED_DATE <= '$until' order by ITEM_ID desc "; // your sql here
        $dataReportItem=new CSqlDataProvider($sql,array(
            'keyField' => 'ITEM_ID',
        return $dataReportItem;

And than you have to add this code in action index.

In your controller | e.g. : controller/ItemsController.php

public function actionIndex(){
if (!Yii::app()->user->isGuest){
            'dataReportItem' =>$ dataReportItem,
                        $mPDF1 = Yii::app()->ePdf->mpdf();
                        ), true));

and now in your view/index.php you can add the code or you can look the code below:

In your view | e.g. : view/items/index.php

<form method="post">
                    <td>Date From</td>
                    <td>Date To</td>
                    <td><input type="date" name="from" value="<?=isset($_GET['from']) ? CHtml::encode($_GET['from']) : '' ; ?>" /></td>
                    <td><input type="date" name="until" value="<?=isset($_GET['until']) ? CHtml::encode($_GET['until']) : '' ; ?>" /></td>
        <input type="submit" value="Report to Excel" name="'ExcelReport'">
        <input type="submit" value="Report to Pdf" name="'PdfReport'">

remain in view but you have to create new php files and use this code:

In your view | e.g. : view/items/view_item_report.php

<h3>Items | Periode <?php echo $_REQUEST['from']." - ".$_REQUEST['until'];?></h3>
$this->widget('bootstrap.widgets.TbExtendedGridView', array(
    'fixedHeader' => true,
    'headerOffset' => 40,
    'type' => 'striped',
    'dataProvider' => $dataReportItem,
    'responsiveTable' => true,
    'template' => "{items}",
            'CREATED_DATE', // This is a reference for parms / parameters
<div align="left">
    <b>Printed By : <? echo Yii::app()->user->name;?><br/>
Printed At : <? echo date("d/m/Y H:i:s");?></b>
            <div align="right">Copyright &COPY; <?php echo date('Y'); ?> By Jsource</div>

Okay It's Done! Don't Forget to Say Alhamdulillah for finishing your problems. i hope it works in your apllication

Escape query parameters

Don't let SQL injection happen to you. Make sure you escape your $_REQUEST parameters using parameter binding before you use them in a query.
