Apologies i’m relatively new to the framework and have a question about cloning DB records.
I have successfully managed to clone a parent record, but I’m really struggling to clone the parents child records.
I’m working on an inventory system and each parent record hase multiple children, I wondered if anyone could post me some example code for model and controllers to help me out or point me in the direction of a good example?
Many thanks in advance…
I don’t know of an existing example but here is one I quickly whipped up for you
// User model
public function relations()
'children'=>[self::HAS_MANY, 'User', 'parent']
// User contorller
public function actionClone()
$user = User::model()->findByPk($id);
// clone parent record
$parentUser = new User;
$parentUser->attributes = $user->attributes;
// clone child records
foreach ($user->children as $child)
$childUser = new User;
$childUser->attributes = $child->attributes;
// update the parent to newly created parent
$childUser->parent = $parentUser->id;
