We sometimes want to add elements (lines) when being in "admin view", without changing the page we are on.


Yii 1.1


  • 10/14/2013 : Added the fillIsFilter option. When setted, the fillable row is also filtering the grid.


  1. Download the extension and extract the file in your protected/extensions/ directory
  2. Check that "application.extensions.*" is in your import array in your config file
  3. Follow the example code (Usage section)


This extension add a "fillable" section in a CGridView widget. Here is an example of the usage.

The grid contains 4 columns: ColId (id), MyCol1 (text), MyCol2 (text), MyCol3 (relationnal select). We want to add, at the end of the grid, a form with inputs for the fillable fields (not the id) and in the action column a "plus" icon to do the action.

$this->widget('application.extensions.EFillableCGridView', array(
   // **** Here starts the addition ****
   'fillable' => array(
      'columns' => array(
            'name' => 'MyCol1',
            'value' => CHtml::textField($model,'MyCol1')
            'name' => 'MyCol2',
            'value' => CHtml::textField($model,'MyCol2')
            'name' => 'MyCol3',
            'value' => CHtml::dropDownList($model, 'MyCol3', CHtml::listData(Col3::model()->findAll(), 'idCol3', 'nameCol3')),
      'CButtonColumn' => array(
         'button' => '<a href="'.Yii::app()->createUrl('control/createAjax').'"><img style="vertical-align: middle;" src="'. Yii::app()->baseUrl .'/images/ico_plus.gif" alt="plus"></a>',
         'action' => Yii::app()->createUrl('control/createAjax'),
      'position' => 'bottom',
      'fillIsFilter' => true,
   // **** Here ends the addition ****
         'name' => 'MyCol3',
         'value' => '$data->Col3->nameCol3',


The fillable section contains 4 subsections:

  • columns is the list of columns you want to add. Each column is defined with a name (must reflect the names used in the grid) and a value: the html input.

  • CButtonColumn is an array containing action (the action of the ajax form) and button, the html link you'll use to send the form.

  • position (optional) is where you want to have the form. Default is 'bottom' (after the last line, before footer), you can set it to 'top' (after the filters)

  • fillIsFilter (optional) allow the fillable row to also be a filter row. When setted to true (or 1, or anything you want), it is a filter until you submit the datas
