SelGridView extends CGridView with following features:

  • remember selected rows on sorting / paging grid
  • select rows programmatically by GET param (e.g. to highlight new record, etc)


Try out a demo


Latest version 2.3


Tested on Yii 1.1.9.


Put selgridview folder from zip to your protected/extensions.


Use as standart CGridView widget (don't forget to set selectableRows >= 1).


public function actionIndex()
    $dataProvider = new CActiveDataProvider('User', array(
           'pagination' => array(
                'pageSize' => 2,
    $this->render('index', compact('dataProvider'));              

View index.php:

  $this->widget('ext.selgridview.SelGridView', array(
    'id' => 'mygrid',
    'dataProvider' => $dataProvider,
    'selectableRows' => 2,
          'class' => 'CCheckBoxColumn',

When sorting or paging such grid, you will see in ajax GET params "User_sel={id}" as well as "User_page={page}". Value of User_sel is model primaryKey. Widget automatically proceess this value and select rows.

If you want to highlight newly created row in grid you need to set GET param User_sel={new-record-id}:

$this->createUrl('user/index', array('User_sel' => 123));

To get all selected keys on all pages in your javascript (when selectableRows >= 2): ~~~ [javascript] var selected = $("#mygrid").selGridView("getAllSelection"); ~~~

Usage with bootstrap

it is possible to use with bootstrap gridview.


$this->widget('ext.selgridview.BootSelGridView', array(
    'id' => 'mygrid',
    'dataProvider' => $dataProvider,

To highlight selected rows in such bootstrap-grid you can add to your css: ~~~ [css] table.table tr.selected td, table.table tr.selected:hover td {

background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #BCE774;

} ~~~

How it works

Standart CGridView can automatically select rows in grid when there is checkox column with checked = true values. But it does not keep selection on sorting / paging. This extension makes two things:

  • creates hidden CCheckBoxColumn that gets checked by GET param. If there is checkbox column in widget config, no hidden column generated
  • attach BeforeAjaxUpdate js function that adds GET params to URL when sorting and pagination


When you have selectableRows > 1 SelGridview will remember all selected rows on all grid pages not only on visible page.


Please submit issues to github. Thanks for feedback!
