Patching PHP code (used as a library) without changing the original code!

Updated about a year ago by le_topTips0 comments – viewed 3,885 times – ( +4 ) – version 1.1
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.

Making friends' configs, DB credentials and paths with version control

Updated about a year ago by ajsharmaTips1 comment – viewed 5,214 times – ( +2 / -1 ) – version 1.1
In many cases developers of one project use their own local environments for coding. There may be a common test platform and, of course, production. All these environments usually have different DB credentials and directory structures (first of all, path to YII framework directory). Another feature is debugging. It's convenient to turn it on for local environments, eventually - on the test server and never (generally speaking) - on the production.

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

Updated 2 years ago by Maurizio Domba CerinTips3 comments – viewed 9,853 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.
