I have been working on a dynamic dropdown code for the last 2 days. The problem was basically that the tutorials on the Yii website don’t speak to using the new CActiveForm methods to make the drop downs.
I decided to finally download Fiddler2 and test it out since it will read the HTML packets and let me see what’s going on behind the scenes. Sure enough, my ajax call was getting an error, but the front end was not seeing it. After about 5-10 minutes of final troubleshooting I got the darn dropdown process to work.
So, here’s my shameless plus for fiddler2. If you don’t have it, get it, it will save you valuable testing time when an error happens… =D
