ArrayDataProvider implements a data provider based on a data array.

The $allModels property contains all data models that may be sorted and/or paginated. ArrayDataProvider will provide the data after sorting and/or pagination. You may configure the $sort and $pagination properties to customize the sorting and pagination behaviors.

Elements in the $allModels array may be either objects (e.g. model objects) or associative arrays (e.g. query results of DAO). Make sure to set the $key property to the name of the field that uniquely identifies a data record or false if you do not have such a field.

Compared to yii\data\ActiveDataProvider, ArrayDataProvider could be less efficient because it needs to have $allModels ready.

ArrayDataProvider may be used in the following way:

$query = new Query;
$provider = new ArrayDataProvider([
    'allModels' => $query->from('post')->all(),
    'sort' => [
        'attributes' => ['id', 'username', 'email'],
    ],
    'pagination' => [
        'pageSize' => 10,
    ],
]);
// get the posts in the current page
$posts = $provider->getModels();

Note: if you want to use the sorting feature, you must configure the $sort property so that the provider knows which columns can be sorted.

For more details and usage information on ArrayDataProvider, see the guide article on data providers.

Property Details

$allModels public property

The data that is not paginated or sorted. When pagination is enabled, this property usually contains more elements than $models. The array elements must use zero-based integer keys.

public array $allModels null
$key public property

The column that is used as the key of the data models. This can be either a column name, or a callable that returns the key value of a given data model. If this is not set, the index of the $models array will be used.

See also getKeys().

public string|callable $key null
$modelClass public property (available since version 2.0.9)

The name of the Model class that will be represented. This property is used to get columns' names.

public string $modelClass null
