I have created a table called posts and linked the posts table to the user table with a author_id foreign key.
I have also created a controller, model and crud for the posts page.
In the posts page I would like to have the user id passed in the form in the _form.php view file automatically without inputting it myself by hand. How to do this please?
All I am trying to do is get the user id inside the form so it is stored in the grid for that user.
Here is the _form.php code:
<?php use yii\helpers\Html; use yii\widgets\ActiveForm; /* @var $this yii\web\View */ /* @var $model frontend\models\Posts */ /* @var $form yii\widgets\ActiveForm */ ?> <div class="posts-form"> <?php $form = ActiveForm::begin(); ?> <?= $form->field($model, 'posts_title')->textInput(['maxlength' => 100]) ?> <?= $form->field($model, 'posts_description')->textarea(['rows' => 6]) ?> <?= $form->field($model, 'author_id')->textInput() ?> <div class="form-group"> <?= Html::submitButton($model->isNewRecord ? 'Create' : 'Update', ['class' => $model->isNewRecord ? 'btn btn-success' : 'btn btn-primary']) ?> </div> <?php ActiveForm::end(); ?> </div>
