As we know YII is the Leading Framework of PHP. Lots of new developers are starting to use YII day by day. Most of the beginners are little bit confused with how to start with YII . I think this note will help them. Follow the simple steps
To run a Yii-powered Web application, you need a Web server that supports PHP 5.1.0.
I was wondering how to set-up the application parameters in the back-end to use them all around the application without the need of using the database and I came up with this solution, I hope it helps somebody else.
Sometimes the active form we wish to use to edit/add a new element on our database is too small and we believe that is much better to use an AJAX'ed dialog/slide form rather than reloading the page to just display one or two fields.
Unfortunately Sebastian Bergmann decided to remove PHPUnit_Story from future PHPUnit versions. Thanks to elvan for pointing me to the relevant comment. As an alternative Behat has been suggested but it seems too bloated for me TBH. There is also PHPSpec but it's non flexible enough for me and tightly bound with English language (What's the purpose of using DSL if customers can't speak English). Since both frameworks are quite young I think I'll just stick to PHPUnit and see what's going on on the BDD frameworks arena. Even PHPUnit_Story parts of this entry are going to be deprecated soon, rest is still valid! When doing TDD, please write tests with design and behaviour of application in mind instead of testing single functions.
A dropdown list can be used to select a value, based on which we can filter the data to be displayed. For example, the extension page has a dropdown list to filter the displayed extensions according to the selected category.
