Based on the standard Gii / Giix admin action

<?php public function actionAdmin() {
    $model = new Model('search');
    $model->unsetAttributes();
    if (isset($_GET['Model'])) {
        $model->attributes = $_GET['Model'];
    }
    if (isset($_GET['export'])) {
        $production = 'export';
    } else {
        $production = 'grid';
    }
    $this->render('admin', array('model' => $model, 'production' => $production));
} ?>

Please note that the extension switches grid display / export depending on the export parameter, so we must implement that parameter at the view level.

Since the url format is configurable in Yii via CUrlManager’s urlFormat , we must take that into account.

<?php
$urlJoin = Yii::app()->urlManager->getUrlFormat() == 'path' ? '?' : '&';
Yii::app()->clientScript->registerScript('search', "
    $('#exportToExcel').click(function(){
        window.location = '". $this->createUrl('admin')  . $urlJoin . "' + $(this).parents('form').serialize() + '&export=true';
        return false;
    });
    $('.search-form form').submit(function(){
        $.fn.yiiGridView.update('some-grid', {
            data: $(this).serialize()
        });
        return false;
    });
");
?>
…
<div class="search-form" style="display:block">
<?php $this->renderPartial('_search', array('model' => $model)); ?>
</div><!-- search-form -->

…
<?php $this->widget('application.components.widgets.tlbExcelView', array(

Here I've used giix extension, but you may just as well use Gii.

<?php $form = $this->beginWidget('GxActiveForm', array(
    'action' => Yii::app()->createUrl($this->route),
    'method' => 'get',
)); ?>
…
    <div class="row buttons">
        <?php echo GxHtml::submitButton(Yii::t('app', 'Search')); ?>
        <?php echo GxHtml::button(Yii::t('app', 'Export to Excel (xls)'), array('id' => 'exportToExcel')); ?>
    </div>
<?php $this->endWidget(); ?>
