Hello - looking for some wisdom -
If I want to change all the links on my site in to Ajax calls - what would be the best way to go about that?
a standard Yii app uses 'main.php' in the 'layouts' directory as a frame, and content gets echoed from the various pages thru the $content variable -
My question is, how would one go about turning a standard link into a Ajax call that would replace the $content variable (and whatever other elements such as page title)?
Please let me know or if I can provide you with any more details as to what I am trying to do here -
seem to have got it working to a certain degree, but my target div now gets the entire site delivered to it (so it looks like i have one site inside the other)
i can feel i am getting close to a solution…
here is the code snippet that i used:
<?php echo CHtml::ajaxLink('Check out This Module',array('/ModuleName/'), array(
as you might imagine, there is a div in my main.php file with the id 'center_content'
the question now: how do i NOT include all the drama surrounding this div?
a renderPartial perhaps?
Hello backgammon ,
your are on the right way:
You have to detect in the controller action-method
if it is an ajax-request [maybe you can use CHttpRequest->isAjaxRequest() ]
and if so you call renderPartial, otherwise you call render…
I don't have tried it yet, but i think this should be the way…
ahh - excellent suggestion -
i will be trying to figure this out throughout the day -
thanks a lot -
there is something working here - which is great -
applied this code to my controller:
<pre class='prettyprint'>public function actionHarth()
and adjusted the initial ajaxLink() so that it was calling the appropriate view (in this case the Harth view):
<?php echo CHtml::ajaxLink('Check out This Module',array('/ModuleName/model/harth/'), array(
they were applied at the top of the view this way for example:
any insights as to what i could do next?
please let me know any insights you may have
thanks for the help
