What SQL-Statement creates yii?

Created 10 months ago by Necip, updated 10 months ago by Necip.

The usual way to find out what Yii has created for an SQL query is to mutilate the SQL in the sourcecode and call the program again so that the SQL statement with errors is displayed. Or you can use the SQL logger, which must be switched on and off each time and logs all SQL statements, which leads to an enormous slowdown in program execution and decelerates your workflow.

Search scenario (CGridView, etc.): avoid default values from database as search condition.

Created 4 years ago by le_top, updated 4 years ago by le_top.

Yii has a neat "trick" that will assign default values to new CActiveRecords. When performing a search() though, this is pretty annoying as they automatically apply as filter values.

Access log output from unit tests

Created 7 years ago by Mike, updated 7 years ago by Mike.

Say, you want to write a test for a component which provides a caching feature. How would you know, that some method of your component returns a cached result? With the solution described here you can inspect all log outputs. So you could search the logs for accesses to the DB to really make sure, that the result was served from cache.
