As I'm new to the framework (2 weeks) - I tried to build a functionallity I already use a lot in my old framework (PRADO). This means combining a GridView with a form. And this in one page, what allows you to select a record from the grid and view the values in the same page without jumping to a new page.
"By Example" cookbook pages will provide coding examples for many of the commonly used classes within Yii. We will try to provide as many usage examples as possible for keep these pages as helpful as possible.
