Ajax And Ie9

I’m new to Yii. So I have 3 questions:


The following ajax call works well in FF and Chrome but not in IE9. Any idea why?

function mudouservico(){


      type: "POST",

      url:    "<? echo Yii::app()->createUrl('faturas/DS'); ?>",

      data:  {serv:codservico.value},

      success: function(data){          

          var jsonOb = eval('(' + data + ')');





      error: function(xhr){

           alert("Erro na chamada ao servidor ("+xhr.readyState+")"+this.url);





What’s the difference between writing javascript code inside a view file using the traditional way…

<script type="text/javascript"> 



… or registering the script?


What’s the best yii approach to make calculations between elements on a view? Let’s say changing a Total when Price or quantity changes?

Thank you for your patient and attention to the newbie…

  1. try protected/views/layouts/main.php, the following code helps me workout in ie8

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

  1. no difference, think about using native php vs yii, try to use yii-way as much as possible;

  2. is this simple js trick?

[size=2]2. – if you register the script:[/size]

  • [size="2"]you may render it in more convenient place, providing third argument $position[/size]
  • [size="2"]you may omit typing jquery onready/onload statement using the same argument $position[/size]
  • [size="2"]you may use heredoc syntax[/size]

These differences are minor on the first look, but may simplify your dev-life.

  1. – just write javascript code, there’s nothing yii-specific.

Thanks rootbear…

That particular line of code was already there by default… That’s not it… :(

Also thanking yugene for the explanations.
