Dropdownlist in Popup

Hi All,

I want to have a popup containing a dropdownlist and based on what is selected,

the specific view should be rendered…

How can I do this?

Please some advice…

So in the popup I just want to have one dropdownlist with the values from one table…

How can I do this in Yii?




    <title>LIGHTBOX EXAMPLE</title>



        display: none;

        position: absolute;

        top: 0%;

        left: 0%;

        width: 100%;

        height: 100%;

        background-color: black;


        -moz-opacity: 0.8;


        filter: alpha(opacity=80);


    .white_content {

        display: none;

        position: absolute;

        top: 25%;

        left: 25%;

        width: 50%;

        height: 50%;

        padding: 16px;

        border: 16px solid orange;

        background-color: white;


        overflow: auto;





    <p>This is the main content. To display a lightbox click <a href = "javascript:void(0)" onclick = "document.getElementById('light').style.display='block';document.getElementById('fade').style.display='block'">here</a></p>

    <div id="light" class="white_content">This is the lightbox content. <a href = "javascript:void(0)" onclick = "document.getElementById('light').style.display='none';document.getElementById('fade').style.display='none'">Close</a>

    <div class="form">

<?php $form=$this->beginWidget('CActiveForm'); ?>

	<div class="row">

		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'attribute'); ?>

		<?php echo $form->dropDownList($model,'attribute', CHtml::listData(Category::model()->findAll(), 'category_id', 'category_name')); ?>

		<?php echo $form->error($model,'attribute'); ?>


	<div class="row buttons">


			echo CHtml::submitButton("Submit");



<?php $this->endWidget(); ?>




    <div id="fade" class="black_overlay"></div>
