Sum of a CGridView column


I’m using a filterable CGridView to display a list of transactions, each transaction has a date and amount.

$this->widget('zii.widgets.grid.CGridView', array(

    'id' => 'transaction-grid',

    'dataProvider' => $transaction->search(),

    'filter' => $transaction,

    'columns' => array(





I’d like a field displaying the sum of the amounts; this field would be updated when filtering. I tried to use ‘afterAjaxUpdate’ but it only displays the sum of ALL transactions:

'afterAjaxUpdate' => 'function(id, data) {$("#total-amount").html('.$transaction->totalAmount.');}',

NB: $transaction->totalAmount is computed and updated in $transaction->search()

What’s wrong ? Thank you for your help,


i guess you need calculate sum manually in controller

I don’t compute sum in the controller because it is only triggered once (on page loading).

Grid filtering (and its update) are realized through Ajax and by a call to $transaction->search().

FYI, here is an excerpt of this function:

public function search() {

        $criteria = new CDbCriteria;

        $criteria->compare('date', $this->date, true);

        $criteria->compare('amount', $this->amount, true);

        // need to clone the criteria to compute sum ?

        $amountCriteria = clone($criteria);

        $amountCriteria->select = 'SUM(amount) AS totalAmount';

        $this->totalAmount = Transaction::model()->find($amountCriteria)->totalAmount;


        return new CActiveDataProvider($this, array(

                    'criteria' => $criteria,

                    'pagination' => array(

                        'pageSize' => 20,
