I have 2 tables, say, Parent and Status. Parent HAS_MANY Statuses. When displaying in CGridView, I want to display only the latest Status (there is a status_time) in the table.
Status has a status_id and a virtual attribute getStatusText that I use to display the status text.
In the Parent, I have a getCurrentStatus to return the latest status entry, and then i use currentstatus->statusText.
I want to show the statusText in the CGridView and have it be filterable. I’ve tried to follow 2 or 3 tutorials and really haven’t gotten the solution. Has anyone done this and can show a simple generic way to do this? I’m pretty confused. I imagine someone has done this before. I don’t want all the statuses, just the most current.
Judging by all the CGridView posts in here - it seems like it’s the toughest, most finicky basic part of Yii…
Is there a way to limit it to one status, just the max one? I’m having trouble doing that. I don’t need all the statuses, just the maximum one. I feel like someone must have had this before, there should be a standard way to do this but I can’t seem to figure it out.
I ended up going another way, I couldn’t get it to work well.
I ended up adding a new relation to the model
'join'=>'INNER JOIN (select max(status_time) as maxtime from ppc_dev.tbl_protocol_status group by protocol_id) j ON i.status_time=j.maxtime', ),
