How to show ajax delete status in CGridView like flash messages

Created 5 years ago by hasanaviHow-tos12 comments – viewed 44,153 times – ( +25 ) – version 1.1

If you are using relational database, after producing CRUD functionality when you try to delete a record in ajax mode which has child record it can't be deleted and you can see the ajax loader forever.

I discovered Twitter Bootstrap almost two years ago. After trying it out for a while I fell in love with it. It didn't take long before I realized that it would be great to write an extension that allowed developers to start using Bootstrap in their Yii projects. One night I sat down and started writing what later became my now popular bootstrap extension. Now that the extension is quite widely used in the community I felt that it was time to write about how to use Bootstrap to its full potential. If you use the Bootstrap CSS files you're really missing out on some great features. After reading this article you'll be able to take full advantage of Bootstrap using LESS.
