You should use.


The Select2 widget demo docs are updated for this change. The earlier yii release had the createUrl method in the controller (which is not valid anymore).

You may check the sample code for Select2 ajax loading in the demo and ensure you have setup your controller action and widget correctly.

If you still face an issue you can create an issue on github.

            $out['results'] = array_values($data);


        else {

        echo Json::encode($out);

Check exactly the code for view and controller in the Select2 ajax loading example.

For example, you seem to be using the fieldname ort instead of id. In addition, you do not have the fieldname text returned in your query output.

If you are changing these - you must change your javascript code as shown in the example as well to match these names.

Would request you to post an issue on github if you are still facing issues.
