Thanks, but as I mentioned I already know how to extend CButtonColumn with additional buttons.
What I’m looking for is one single button on the top of my grid view (please check the enclosed image in my first post).
Your solution shows the additional custom button only if you have some data in your grid. I would like to be able to add new record to my model from grid view even if it is empty.
The reason why I need this is that I would like to change Yii’s default 2 columns view and would like to eliminate the right-hand side menu bar to extend my grid full-screen. My client prefer to use grid view instead of menu options.
If anybody knows an extension grid view with advanced features that would be also fine.
