The GridView widget is used to display data in a grid.

It provides features like sorting, paging and also filtering the data.

A basic usage looks like the following:

<?= GridView::widget([
    'dataProvider' => $dataProvider,
    'columns' => [
        'id',
        'name',
        'created_at:datetime',
        // ...
    ],
]) ?>

The columns of the grid table are configured in terms of yii\grid\Column classes, which are configured via $columns.

The look and feel of a grid view can be customized using the large amount of properties.

For more details and usage information on GridView, see the guide article on data widgets.

Property Details

$afterRow public property

An anonymous function that is called once AFTER rendering each data model. It should have the similar signature as $rowOptions. The return result of the function will be rendered directly.

public Closure $afterRow null
$beforeRow public property

An anonymous function that is called once BEFORE rendering each data model. It should have the similar signature as $rowOptions. The return result of the function will be rendered directly.

public Closure $beforeRow null
$caption public property

The caption of the grid table

See also $captionOptions.

public string $caption null
$captionOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the caption element.

See also:

public array $captionOptions = []
$columns public property

Grid column configuration. Each array element represents the configuration for one particular grid column. For example,

[
    ['class' => SerialColumn::className()],
    [
        'class' => DataColumn::className(), // this line is optional
        'attribute' => 'name',
        'format' => 'text',
        'label' => 'Name',
    ],
    ['class' => CheckboxColumn::className()],
]

If a column is of class yii\grid\DataColumn, the "class" element can be omitted.

As a shortcut format, a string may be used to specify the configuration of a data column which only contains attribute, format, and/or label options: "attribute:format:label". For example, the above "name" column can also be specified as: "name:text:Name". Both "format" and "label" are optional. They will take default values if absent.

Using the shortcut format the configuration for columns in simple cases would look like this:

[
    'id',
    'amount:currency:Total Amount',
    'created_at:datetime',
]

When using a $dataProvider with active records, you can also display values from related records, e.g. the name attribute of the author relation:

// shortcut syntax
'author.name',
// full syntax
[
    'attribute' => 'author.name',
    // ...
]
public array $columns = []
$dataColumnClass public property

The default data column class if the class name is not explicitly specified when configuring a data column. Defaults to 'yii\grid\DataColumn'.

public string $dataColumnClass null
$emptyCell public property

The HTML display when the content of a cell is empty. This property is used to render cells that have no defined content, e.g. empty footer or filter cells.

Note that this is not used by the yii\grid\DataColumn if a data item is null. In that case the nullDisplay property of the $formatter will be used to indicate an empty data value.

public string $emptyCell '&nbsp;'
$filterErrorOptions public property

The options for rendering every filter error message. This is mainly used by yii\helpers\Html::error() when rendering an error message next to every filter input field.

public array $filterErrorOptions = ['class' => 'help-block']
$filterErrorSummaryOptions public property

The options for rendering the filter error summary. Please refer to yii\helpers\Html::errorSummary() for more details about how to specify the options.

See also renderErrors().

public array $filterErrorSummaryOptions = ['class' => 'error-summary']
$filterModel public property

The model that keeps the user-entered filter data. When this property is set, the grid view will enable column-based filtering. Each data column by default will display a text field at the top that users can fill in to filter the data.

Note that in order to show an input field for filtering, a column must have its yii\grid\DataColumn::$attribute property set and the attribute should be active in the current scenario of $filterModel or have yii\grid\DataColumn::$filter set as the HTML code for the input field.

When this property is not set (null) the filtering feature is disabled.

$filterPosition public property

Whether the filters should be displayed in the grid view. Valid values include:

  • FILTER_POS_HEADER: the filters will be displayed on top of each column's header cell.
  • FILTER_POS_BODY: the filters will be displayed right below each column's header cell.
  • FILTER_POS_FOOTER: the filters will be displayed below each column's footer cell.
public string $filterPosition self::FILTER_POS_BODY
$filterRowOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the filter row element.

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

public array $filterRowOptions = ['class' => 'filters']
$filterSelector public property

Additional jQuery selector for selecting filter input fields

public string $filterSelector null
$filterUrl public property

The URL for returning the filtering result. yii\helpers\Url::to() will be called to normalize the URL. If not set, the current controller action will be used. When the user makes change to any filter input, the current filtering inputs will be appended as GET parameters to this URL.

public string|array $filterUrl null
$footerRowOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the table footer row.

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

$formatter public property

The formatter used to format model attribute values into displayable texts. This can be either an instance of yii\i18n\Formatter or an configuration array for creating the yii\i18n\Formatter instance. If this property is not set, the "formatter" application component will be used.

$headerRowOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the table header row.

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

$layout public property

The layout that determines how different sections of the list view should be organized. The following tokens will be replaced with the corresponding section contents:

public string $layout "{summary}\n{items}\n{pager}"
$options public property

The HTML attributes for the container tag of the grid view. The "tag" element specifies the tag name of the container element and defaults to "div".

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

public array $options = ['class' => 'grid-view']
$rowOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the table body rows. This can be either an array specifying the common HTML attributes for all body rows, or an anonymous function that returns an array of the HTML attributes. The anonymous function will be called once for every data model returned by $dataProvider. It should have the following signature:

function ($model, $key, $index, $grid)
  • $model: the current data model being rendered
  • $key: the key value associated with the current data model
  • $index: the zero-based index of the data model in the model array returned by $dataProvider
  • $grid: the GridView object

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

$showFooter public property

Whether to show the footer section of the grid table.

public boolean $showFooter false
$showHeader public property

Whether to show the header section of the grid table.

public boolean $showHeader true
$showOnEmpty public property

Whether to show the grid view if $dataProvider returns no data.

public boolean $showOnEmpty true
$tableOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the grid table element.

See also yii\helpers\Html::renderTagAttributes() for details on how attributes are being rendered.

public array $tableOptions = ['class' => 'table table-striped table-bordered']
