Insert a multirow header in CGridView

Created 3 years ago by PeppeHow-tos2 comments – viewed 14,694 times – ( +6 ) – version 1.1
The CGridView widget is very useful and customizable, but sometimes you need a little more. One limit I found is to have only one row for headers; yes, you can write each column header in more than one row, but just inside the single cell. I was looking instead for the possibility to use more than one row, with different structure one from the others. This way you can write columns grouping headers, and obtain a nicer view.

This allows you to create one layout or CSS styling for your menu, and when each page is loaded, a new set of menu items is loaded in. This is useful for context specific sidebars within your application.

How to use bizRules in standard accessControl filter

Created 3 years ago by Maciej Li┼╝ewskiHow-tos8 comments – viewed 13,820 times – ( +3 ) – version 1.1
I assume you are familiar with accessControl standard filter. It allows you to separate privileges to run some action from action code itself. There is however one problem with most common usage - you cannot use bizRules, at least based on some parameters passed to 'checkAccess' just because it is hard to pass them in accessRules() result.
