EChosen is an extension for Yii framework. This extension is a wrapper for Chosen JavaScript plugin which makes long, unwieldy select boxes much more user-friendly. It is currently available in both jQuery and Prototype flavors.

Requirements

  • Yii 1.1 or above (tested on 1.1.8)
  • jQuery or Prototype

Installation

Move EChosen folder in your applications extensions folder (default: protected/extensions).

Using extension

Just place the following code inside your view file:

<?php $this->widget( 'ext.EChosen.EChosen' ); ?>

You can also change some default settings:

<?php $this->widget( 'ext.EChosen.EChosen', array(
  'target' => 'select',
  'useJQuery' => false,
  'debug' => true,
)); ?>
  • target jQuery selector for elements to apply this plugin to (default: .chzn-select)
  • useJQuery use jQuery framework on true, Prototype on false (default: true)

You will also need to add chzn-select class to your select elements you want to apply this plugin or if you use jQuery framework you can just change the selector.
