Many people want to use downloaded extensions in their own way. As for me most of the extensions require me to correct Yii::import() instructions inside their source code. All these extensions are directory dependent. To avoid the situation described above, I suggest to implement pseudo-anonymous aliases:
find doubletts by db fields.
in this example i will check doublets for 3 tabelfields (col1,col2,col3).
so i will get a subquery with the condition, select and grouping of the tablefields. the having with COUNT() > 1 means: find all records more then one result.
If you are lucky enough and have the privilege to develop on a Linux based environment, this little tip might boost-up your TDD process (at least the Unit Testing part). Please note, that this should work just fine with Apple computers also, but not tested!
I recently had to have a checkbox column in my grid view that supported the 'disabled' attribute. This was easy enough to do by extending the CCheckBoxColumn. However, I also wanted the checkbox to be selected when clicking on the table's row (supported via CGridView's selectableRows option). I discovered I had to tweak yiigridview.js so that it would not select disabled rows when clicking on it or on the 'select all' checkbox.
If you're working a lot with extensions you often stumble upon problems, when you want to include them into your custom web application, like hardcoded or absolute path aliases or classes extended from core application components, which implement addiditonal features.
Backoffice Grid Views often list information like Posts for a blog while showing at the same time linked information like the User who wrote that post.
For more efficiency, it is appropriate that the User is displayed as a link to the User detail page.
En ciertas ocasiones tenemos que lidiar con el tema de colocar una lista de checkboxes para hacer una seleccion especifica como es el caso de los dias de la semana para un calendario, para esta labor tenemos el comando CHtml::checkBoxList(), revisando un poco el funcionamiento de este temos los siguientes parametros:
I like programing on my localhost, however it really bugged me to make changes to index.php & config files on my production server. After combining all available wiki articles on this topic and some trial and error this is what I use for my applications so I could just upload it to production server and it will work without any changes.
