Active Record Problem

I have a problem creating new records using active record.

I made a database connection to a MYSQL database which is working properly.

Next i made a user model class of the tbl_user table using gii tools.



 * This is the model class for table "tbl_user".


 * The followings are the available columns in table 'tbl_user':

 * @property integer $id

 * @property string $email

 * @property string $password

 * @property string $name

 * @property string $address

 * @property double $height

 * @property double $weight

 * @property string $birth

 * @property integer $sex

 * @property string $registered_at


class User extends CActiveRecord



	 * Returns the static model of the specified AR class.

	 * @param string $className active record class name.

	 * @return User the static model class


	public static function model($className=__CLASS__)


		return parent::model($className);



	 * @return string the associated database table name


	public function tableName()


		return 'tbl_user';



	 * @return array validation rules for model attributes.


	public function rules()


		// NOTE: you should only define rules for those attributes that

		// will receive user inputs.

		return array(

			array('email, password, name, address, height, weight, birth, sex, registered_at', 'required'),

			array('sex', 'numerical', 'integerOnly'=>true),

			array('height, weight', 'numerical'),

			array('email, password, name', 'length', 'max'=>100),

			// The following rule is used by search().

			// Please remove those attributes that should not be searched.

			array('id, email, password, name, address, height, weight, birth, sex, registered_at', 'safe', 'on'=>'search'),




	 * @return array relational rules.


	public function relations()


		// NOTE: you may need to adjust the relation name and the related

		// class name for the relations automatically generated below.

		return array(




	 * @return array customized attribute labels (name=>label)


	public function attributeLabels()


		return array(

			'id' => 'ID',

			'email' => 'Email',

			'password' => 'Password',

			'name' => 'Name',

			'address' => 'Address',

			'height' => 'Height',

			'weight' => 'Weight',

			'birth' => 'Birth',

			'sex' => 'Sex',

			'registered_at' => 'Registered At',




	 * Retrieves a list of models based on the current search/filter conditions.

	 * @return CActiveDataProvider the data provider that can return the models based on the search/filter conditions.


	public function search()


		// Warning: Please modify the following code to remove attributes that

		// should not be searched.

		$criteria=new CDbCriteria;











		return new CActiveDataProvider($this, array(





In the SiteController i created a register action where i create a new user, insert the data and want to save it to the database using $user->save(); but i dont get the save option, i only get the functions defined in the user model class to show up.

        public function actionRegister()


		$model=new RegisterForm;

		// if it is ajax validation request

		if(isset($_POST['ajax']) && $_POST['ajax']==='register-form')


			echo CActiveForm::validate($model);



		// collect user input data




			// validate user input and redirect to the next page if valid


                                $user=new User;

                                $user->email = $model->email;

                                $user->password = $model->password;




		// display the register form



So what am i missing here? Why isnt the ->save(); function showing up?

you mean, there is a problem with your IDE?

The problem is, i’m not sure what the problem is.

I’m using netbeans 7.2.1 right now, i’ll look into it and maybe use another one.

Ok i fixed it by including the yii folder as a php include path

Thx for pointing me in the right direction.
