I am new to this framework and I am just finding my way through it.
It looks promising, and I think I am going to use it for an upcoming project. I just have a question.
I know this is probably a simple question, but how can I get a list of all the categories (i have a categories model) from the products controller(also have a product model) and then add it to the view and make it accessible via a drop down?
Thanks for your help in advanced.
Category::model()->findAll(). You don't need to get the list via Product model since they are not related yet.
I have the following code in the view :
<?php echo CHtml::activeDropDownList($products,'categoryID', Categories::model()->findAll() ); ?>
I get the following error when I run that code:
Object of class categories could not be converted to string
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
Figured it out :
<?php echo CHtml::activeDropDownList($products,'categoryID', CHtml::listData(categories::model()->findAll() , 'id', 'name') ); ?>
Oh the joy of learning a new framework. I will get there.
Thanks, qiang for you assistance.
