gii Generate Button


when I create new files with gii I have this "Generate" checkbox on the top right of the files preview.

Does it do anything? I thought it would select all files to be overwritten, which would be a cool feature.

But I found no functionality attached to it.

Who can shed some light?

Best regards,


It should work in 1.1.4.

There’s a bug in 1.1.3 which prevents it from working.

Hi Qiang,

sorry, but what should do the button exactly?

I’ve updated yii to 1.1.4, but neither the ‘overwrite’ checkboxes get checked nor the files are overwritten?!

Best regards,
