One of the common tasks the web application might be required to perform, especially the app using some kind of a CMS, is to save the history of data changes. Your client for sure will want the answer to this simple question - If I mess this up or delete by accident can we bring it back?

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).
This wiki is to show you how to use jQuery get and JSON to get data from a dropdown/any form field and fill form fields with the values instantaneously. First, I'll give example use cases of what I'm going to teach you so you can quickly see if this is for you.
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.
