I was playing around with another PHP framework which I didn't really liked anyway but it had simple and nice integration for PHP built in web server so I decided to write one for Yii (since this is my primary PHP framework)
So you want to use a fork of any existing vendor extension with your Yii 2 install and use the fork, instead of original source. This does not need you to push any update or register your package on packagist.org. You are recommended to follow the approach below:
Generally we need to show one or more fields from a model that is related to another model used in CGridView.
For our case we will use two related models, which explain how to use model "A" fields in a CGridView that used model "B".
First declare an attribute to store the file name in the model class (either a form model or an active record model).
Also declare a file validation rule for this attribute to ensure a file is uploaded with specific extension name.
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.
