Adding a date range search for CGridView the easy way

Created 3 years ago by mikewalenTips6 comments – viewed 28,609 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.

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.

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.

Adding 'disabled' to CCheckBoxColumn and support for yiigridview.js

Created 3 years ago by Xgamer99Tips3 comments – viewed 13,279 times – ( +1 ) – version 1.1
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.
