using multiple radio button

Created 2 years ago by francis jaTips4 comments – viewed 31,706 times – ( +6 / -1 ) – version 1.1
When we use multiple radio buttons with same name in Yii many people have the problem on getting the value of the selected radiobutton.

Adding a date range search for CGridView the easy way

Created about a year ago by mikewalenTips4 comments – viewed 18,370 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.
