Manage (Target) Language in Multilingual Applications + A Language Selector Widget (i18n)

Created 2 years ago by c@cbaTutorials10 comments – viewed 27,208 times – ( +15 ) – version 1.1
In case of a multilingual application, one might consider it a reasonable approach to store the preferred language of the user in a session variable, and after that, every time a page is requested, to check this session variable and render the page in the indicated language. This tutorial shows a Yii-way of doing this. We implement an event handler for the onBeginRequest event; as the name of the event suggests, this event handler will be called at the beginning of each request, so its a good place to check whether a language is provided (via post, session or cookie) and set the application language accordingly. We also implement a simple Language-Selector Widget, which can render the language options as ajax-links or as a drop-down list.

Customizing Yii's formatting rules (extending CFormatter)

Created 3 years ago by HaenselTips0 comments – viewed 13,186 times – ( +14 ) – version 1.1
CFormatter is one of Yii's core components and used to format values displayed in widgets like CGridView or CDetailView. All classic formats like numbers, text, urls or datetime are supported but you may have to use a formatting rule that isn't built in. Let's say we want to display arrays of strings (like tags associated with a product model). When using CDetailView we would usually make use of PHPs implode function to create a simple string value of all values in the $product->tags array.
