Model load, missing fields

Hey guys. :)

When I do a $model->load($post) it is not the complete model that is loaded. This puzzles me.

I would expect to load based on a single criteria and then the complete model is populated with data.

What am I not getting here?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Assuming your "Model" is an ActiveRecord, you have to distinguish 2 different ways to populate its attributes.

  1. from a database record

$model = Model::find()->...->one();

This will populate all the attributes that are stored in the db table.

  1. from a user input

$model = new Model();


This will populate only the attributes that are in the user’s input.

Oh, good stuff. Now I see the difference. Exactly what I needed.

Thanks man. :)
