activetabview EActiveTabView allow us to keep track of the actual selected tab inside a form...

  1. Documentation
  2. Change Log

This extension works in similar fashion to CTabView, but is intended to be used inside a form. This extension adds a single hidden field in wich value's is stored the actual selected tab. So, in our controller we can ask for that field to know the actual selected tab.

Usage

The usage is the same of the CTabView, except that we must specify the name of the hidden field (or model/attribute):

In our view:

<div class="yiiForm">

<?php echo CHtml::form(); ?>

<?php echo CHtml::errorSummary($someModel); ?>

<div class="simple">
<?php echo CHtml::activeLabelEx($someModel,'attr1'); ?>
<?php echo CHtml::activeTextField($someModel,'attr1'); ?>
</div>
<div class="simple">
<?php echo CHtml::activeLabelEx($someModel,'attr2'); ?>
<?php echo CHtml::activeTextField($someModel,'attr2'); ?>
</div>

<?php
   $Tabs = array(...);	
   $viewData = array(...);
   
   $this->widget(
      'application.extensions.ActiveTabView.EActiveTabView',
      array(
         'tabs'=>$Tabs,
         'viewData'=>$viewData,
         'model'=>$someModel,
         'attribute'=>'attr3'
   ));
   
   // OR
   
   $this->widget(
      'application.extensions.ActiveTabView.EActiveTabView',
      array(
         'tabs'=>$Tabs,
         'viewData'=>$viewData,
         'name'=>'someName'
   ));


?>

<div class="action">
<?php echo CHtml::submitButton(); ?>
</div>

<?php echo CHtml::closeTag('form'); ?>
</div><!-- yiiForm -->

So in our controller we can do the following:

public function actionUpdate()
{
   $someModel=new SomeModel;
   
   if(isset($_POST['SomeModel']))
   {
      // In the case that we specify model/attribute.
      $someModel->attributes=$_POST['SomeModel'];      
      // $someModel->attr3 has the ID of the actual selected tab
      
      // OR, in the case that we specify the name.
      $selectedTab = $_POST['someName'];
      // $selectedTab has the ID of the actual selected tab
     
      // do ther stuff
   }
   // render view, etc,etc
}
