I’m using RestFul Web Services (http://www.yiiframework.com/doc-2.0/guide-rest-quick-start.html)
I need to use my own custom “view” action and I’m unsetting view action in my controller:
public function actions()
$actions = parent::actions();
So then I can use my own view action:
public function actionView($id)
// my stuff
The problem is that afterFind method in my model is not executing, and "fields" (where I can define which fields to return depending on action) is not executing either.
How can I use these 2 overrides function in my model (afterFind and fields), but using a custom action for "view" in a RestFul Controller ?
I found something, and I think this needs a FIX in Yii2 …
When you create a custom action to use with UrlRule, this action has to be named in LOWERCASE
So I was using "customIndex" as action name … and my method in controller was "actionCustomIndex"
This is NOT working because action name rules in Base/Controller.php (action’s methods, around lines 211 …)
It would be nice to have a fix for that, so I can name my custom action as I want with lower and upper cases.
maybe changing the rules from
anyway, the problem about afterFind is still live … this function is not called with custom actions
