There are a few issues with the other solutions I originally used that I found from other wikis. I address the issues I had in this much simpler and shorter way. I am also going to explain what is going into way more detail than others to help people understand what's going on.
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.
In doing internet searches trying to learn how to incorporated ajax into web pages generated by the yii framework I noticed that there seems to be a lot of confusion. I worry that too-clever hacks will be broken in upgrades of the framework.
Hey guys, today we will show you how to make a Yii CJuitabs as example. Some feature cases such as Static tabs, render partial tabs, Ajax tabs, color tabs...
You can see our code, there are simple 3 steps to make it work.
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.
