As you know, the CDetailView widget displays details of a single model. If no formatting is specified, boolean values that are stored in the database as 0 and 1, are represented in the detail view as 0 and 1. If formatted as boolean, they are represented as 'No' and 'Yes'. We want to add i18n support, so that Yes and No appear in the current language.
Let's say our table 'mug' has a column named 'color' of the type ENUM('red','green','blue').
We want to replace the textfield for the attribute color in the create and update forms of a 'mug' with a drop down list, which has the enum values as options.
The main code was contributed by zaccaria in the forum (see this post).
The giix code generator has out of the box i18n support for model names and attribute labels (besides other cool features > check it out!) .
But I want to factor in not only the plural form, but also the grammatical cases (especially the accusative) while translating 'Manage Objects', 'Create Object', 'Edit Object' etc.
