Class yii\widgets\Block

Inheritanceyii\widgets\Block » yii\base\Widget » yii\base\Component » yii\base\Object
Implementsyii\base\Configurable, yii\base\ViewContextInterface
Available since version2.0
Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/widgets/Block.php

Block records all output between begin() and end() calls and stores it in yii\base\View::$blocks.

for later use.

yii\base\View component contains two methods yii\base\View::beginBlock() and yii\base\View::endBlock(). The general idea is that you're defining block default in a view or layout:

<?php $this->beginBlock('messages', true) ?>
Nothing.
<?php $this->endBlock() ?>

And then overriding default in sub-views:

<?php $this->beginBlock('username') ?>
Umm... hello?
<?php $this->endBlock() ?>

Second parameter defines if block content should be outputted which is desired when rendering its content but isn't desired when redefining it in subviews.
