This article shows one of possible ways to implement menu items (as well as links), which displays a progress / wait dialog and are redirecting browser to destination URL in the same time. This is especially useful, for links or routes that are know to be loaded for a prolonged period of time (i.e. getting a lot of data from database).
In this wiki, I try to implement a simple authorization schema without putting much logic inside a file
or into database table. We are constructing authorization hierarchy inside the controller. We are getting
roles for the current user from database table and assigning only roles to user that are declared in the
particular controller. We have brought down the work of loading of auth data at main
application level to controller level. This way we have pulverised auth data for entire site into smaller
units. Finally we are going to look at couple of examples.
Changing the way a CGridView is rendered from the configuration file, or through behaviors specified at the moment it is used, is handy to extend a CGridView without creating tons of different classes for it.
I am surprised that this is not in the default implementation, so I made my default CGridView implementation.
