Updated about a month ago by rAWTAZTutorials19 comments – viewed 74,989 times – ( +59 ) – version 1.1

    For each column of the CGridView, we can specify name, value, htmlOptions, cssClassExpression etc. In the declarations of the attributes value and cssClassExpression we can use the "special" variable $data, for example like this: 'value'=>'$data->author->username',.     Now we might want to use $data in the declaration of the htmlOptions attribute, which is normally not possible, to generate for example the tag <td id="3" class="name_3">, where 3 is the id of the data model for the current row, i.e. $data->id.
