ActionColumn is a column for the yii\grid\GridView widget that displays buttons for viewing and manipulating the items.

To add an ActionColumn to the gridview, add it to the columns configuration as follows:

'columns' => [
    // ...
    [
        'class' => ActionColumn::className(),
        // you may configure additional properties here
    ],
]

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

Property Details

$buttonOptions public property (available since version 2.0.4)

Html options to be applied to the default button.

public array $buttonOptions = []
$buttons public property

Button rendering callbacks. The array keys are the button names (without curly brackets), and the values are the corresponding button rendering callbacks. The callbacks should use the following signature:

function ($url, $model, $key) {
    // return the button HTML code
}

where $url is the URL that the column creates for the button, $model is the model object being rendered for the current row, and $key is the key of the model in the data provider array.

You can add further conditions to the button, for example only display it, when the model is editable (here assuming you have a status field that indicates that):

[
    'update' => function ($url, $model, $key) {
        return $model->status === 'editable' ? Html::a('Update', $url) : '';
    },
],
public array $buttons = []
$controller public property

The ID of the controller that should handle the actions specified here. If not set, it will use the currently active controller. This property is mainly used by $urlCreator to create URLs for different actions. The value of this property will be prefixed to each action name to form the route of the action.

public string $controller null
$headerOptions public property

The HTML attributes for the header cell tag.

public array $headerOptions = ['class' => 'action-column']
$template public property

The template used for composing each cell in the action column. Tokens enclosed within curly brackets are treated as controller action IDs (also called button names in the context of action column). They will be replaced by the corresponding button rendering callbacks specified in $buttons. For example, the token {view} will be replaced by the result of the callback buttons['view']. If a callback cannot be found, the token will be replaced with an empty string.

As an example, to only have the view, and update button you can add the ActionColumn to your GridView columns as follows:

['class' => 'yii\grid\ActionColumn', 'template' => '{view} {update}'],

See also $buttons.

public string $template '{view} {update} {delete}'
$urlCreator public property

A callback that creates a button URL using the specified model information. The signature of the callback should be the same as that of createUrl() Since 2.0.10 it can accept additional parameter, which refers to the column instance itself:

function (string $action, mixed $model, mixed $key, integer $index, ActionColumn $this) {
    //return string;
}

If this property is not set, button URLs will be created using createUrl().

public callable $urlCreator null
$visibleButtons public property (available since version 2.0.7)

Visibility conditions for each button. The array keys are the button names (without curly brackets), and the values are the boolean true/false or the anonymous function. When the button name is not specified in this array it will be shown by default. The callbacks must use the following signature:

function ($model, $key, $index) {
    return $model->status === 'editable';
}

Or you can pass a boolean value:

[
    'update' => \Yii::$app->user->can('update'),
],
public array $visibleButtons = []
