Drop down list with enum values for column of type ENUM >+> incorporate into giix

Created 4 years ago by c@cbaHow-tos3 comments – viewed 33,161 times – ( +14 ) – version 1.1
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).

How to extend CFormatter, add i18n support to booleanFormat and use it in CDetailView

Created 4 years ago by c@cbaHow-tos3 comments – viewed 11,933 times – ( +9 ) – version 1.1
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.

Countries sometimes change their laws pertaining to time zones and daylight saving times. This means that GMT+2 can be a different time this August compared to last August! However, by using php's DateTime class (instead of timestamps), we can do both "format" and "time zone" conversions on a single DateTime object (only 2 lines of code) for date, time, timestamp and datetime types - while php takes care of nightmares such as current and historical time zones and daylight saving times.

Upload files in Yii2 with MongoDb and GridFs

Created 2 years ago by edoardo849How-tos3 comments – viewed 16,236 times – ( +8 ) – version 2.0
Uploading files in a webapp can be extremely tricky and sometimes the quickest way to do it is to store the file directly in the webserver or into a DNS (like Amazon S3) and then to save the link and the metadata inside a table in the DB. The thing is that you'll have to deal with file permissions, server storage, file management and so on (which is perfectly fine, by the way).
