Im trying to create a basic “Create New Model” Form in Yii2. I have an ActiveRecord Model named ‘Blogger’ with a status field, which is defined in the database table as “… TINYINT(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0”. I am using ActiveForm->field()->radioList() to display 2 radio buttons to represent 0 and 1.
The code for the field is as follows:
<?= $form->field($blogger, 'status')->radioList( array( Blogger::STATUS_HIDDEN => 'Hidden', Blogger::STATUS_DISPLAYED => 'Displayed' ) ); ?>
The resulting HTML looks as I expect, however, the default value of ‘0’ is not being checked/selected. When I print the new instance of this $blogger model, I see null values for ‘status’. I expect to see a 0.
How do I get the ActiveField to auto-check the radio button for ‘0’ when I create new records for this model?
Is there a function in the Blogger class file I need to use to set defaults? Is there anything I am missing with my calls to ActiveField->radioList() ?
