Insert a multirow header in CGridView

Updated about a year ago by PeppeHow-tos2 comments – viewed 8,437 times – ( +4 )
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 is useful for context specific sidebars within your application.
