How To Create A Custom Button That Will Delete A Record

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am displaying the products records in index page in which I want to display a delete button with each Item, so that when click on that delete button then it should delete that Item record.
I have set something but doesn't work, 

                    echo CHtml::button('Delete', array(
                        'submit' => array('item/delete', array('id' => $data->id)),
                        'confirm' => 'Are you sure?'

and here is the delete action 

public function actionDelete($id)
                        // we only allow deletion via POST request

                        // if AJAX request (triggered by deletion via admin grid view), we should not redirect the browser
                                $this->redirect(isset($_POST['returnUrl']) ? $_POST['returnUrl'] : array('admin'));
                        throw new CHttpException(400,'Invalid request. Please do not repeat this request again.');

Where I am doing mistake ??

Thanks in advance.

If I'm following your code correctly, your button makes a GET request, submitting the browser to the page for deleting. But your code requires a POST request. I'd recommend having this done via Ajax, the way the grid view does it.

Well, I'm not going to write the code for you. You can either change what you have to allow for a GET response, or you could change the button to a form that makes a POST request, or you can look into the admin grid view code to see how that works, or you could search online.
