Step 5. Create a View for the Grid

Now, we will create a view for the grid. Again, we will use a standard code initializing the component.

If after completing the step, you will run webhost/event/grid, the app will produce the following grid that loads data from server and saves them back:

If you slightly know dhtmlxGrid and will doubt what one or another command makes, refer to the following tutorials:

To configure the View object for the grid:
  1. In the "View " folder create a subfolder "Event "
  2. Add a new file to the "Event " subfolder and name it "grid.ctp "
  3. Open the "grid.ctp " file and add the following code there:

    "View/Event/grid.ctp" file

            mygrid = new dhtmlXGridObject('grid_here'); 
            mygrid.setHeader("Start date,End date,Text");
            // refers to the 'grid_data' action we have created on the previous step
            // refers to the 'grid_data' action as well
            var dp = new dataProcessor("./grid_data"); 
    </script> </body>
