I have found myself stuck trying to display my drop down list the way I want it. Basically I have 3 fields in one Table named Category…
All fields are mandatory, my code atm is as so
<?php echo $form->dropDownList($model,'ParentID', CHtml::listData(ECCategory::model()->findAll(), 'ID', 'Name','ParentID' ));?>
What this does is list all the Category names under a ParentID. So for example I have
ID 9. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
Assuming the following Name belong the following ID’s and inside the brackets is the ParentID
Name 9.Electronics(), 1.Accessories(9), 2.Video Players(9), 3.Audio Players(9), 4.Cameras(9), 5.Headphones(1)
The Output I get now is
What I intend to get is
I’m a little bit stuck here, I was thinking I can include a condition but how do I include a condition in a dropdownlist??
Hope this makes sense, I need a direction tbh
