I have a view (_form.php) with fields (name,summary) submit button. If I click on submit button, it should update Name field of One model and Summary field of another model.Both this models are of different databases.

Can anyone help on this. I tried the following for this

In _form.php(Test)

<?php echo $form->labelEx($model, ‘name’); ?>

<?php echo $form->textField($model, ‘name’, array(‘size’ => 60, ‘maxlength’ => 250)); ?>

<?php echo $form->error($model, ‘name’); ?>

<?php echo $form->labelEx(Test1::model(), ‘summary’); ?>

<?php echo $form->textField(Test1::model(), ‘summary’, array(‘size’ => 60, ‘maxlength’ => 250)); ?>

<?php echo $form->error(Test1::model(), ‘summary’); ?>

<?php echo CHtml::submitButton($model->isNewRecord ? ‘Create’ : ‘Save’); ?>

In TestController.php

public function actionCreate() {

        $model = new Test;

        if (isset($_POST['Test'])) {

            $model->attributes = $_POST['Test'];

            if ($model->save()) {

                $modeltest1 = new Test1;

                $modeltest1->attributes = $_POST['Test1'];

                $modeltest1->Id = $model->Id;

                if ($modeltest1->save())

                    $this->redirect(array('view', 'Id' => $model->Id));



        $this->render('create', array(

            'model' => $model,



This code is not working. How can I make it work for different databases. I followed the below link for this.


from TestController pass summary attributes to respected controller.

for example…

if ($modeltest1->save())

$this->redirect(array(‘xyzcontroller/create’, ‘summary’ => $model->sumamry));

hope it may help you
