Batch Gridview data ajax send splitted in chunks displaying bootstrap Progress bar

Created a year ago by toaster, updated a year ago by toaster.

The scenario in which this wiki can be useful is when you have to send an (huge) array of model ids and perform a time consuming computation with it like linking every model to other models.

Created 2 years ago by Necip, updated 2 years 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.
