CGridView: Adding behaviors from configuration, and template items from behaviors to CGridView

Created about a year ago by le_topTips0 comments – viewed 6,612 times – ( +5 ) – version 1.1
Changing the way a CGridView is rendered from the configuration file, or through behaviors specified at the moment it is used, is handy to extend a CGridView without creating tons of different classes for it. I am surprised that this is not in the default implementation, so I made my default CGridView implementation.

Adding a date range search for CGridView the easy way

Created about a year ago by mikewalenTips4 comments – viewed 17,058 times – ( +12 ) – version 1.1
After a lot of research, everything I found on adding date range searching to a CGridView advanced search form seemed to involve adding two new public variables (e.g. $date_from, $date_to), 'safe' rules for the new variables, and a rather chunky if/elseif/else check in the search() method. This probably isn't a hassle for most, but because many of the tables in my database contain two or three and sometimes four date columns (e.g. date_created, date_modified, date_deleted etc.), it meant I was having to add up to eight public variables, the corresponding safe rules, and modifying the search() criteria for each date attribute. So, I set about creating a better way and I thought I'd share my work with the community.

The article Fixing extensions without modifying their code reminded me of another patching technique that I used. My conviction and a hard look on the web had led me to an article Redefine PHP class methods or class giving me a head start to do what I wanted: patching third party code without touching the original to allow easy upgrades.
