What SQL-Statement creates yii?

Created 7 months ago by Necip, updated 7 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.
