I am new to yii2 and trying to get around. I have a dropdownlist whose values in the database are enum. So when the crud was created the dropdownlist had the enum values.
But I want to keep one value selected as default in the drop down list.
My form code is below:
<?= $form->field($model, 'priotiy_level')->dropDownList([ 'low' => 'Low', 'medium' => 'Medium', 'high' => 'High', ], ['prompt' => 'Select Priority Level']) ?>
After initialization of the $model instance in your controller set the attribute and then pass $model to view.
$model->priority_level = 'medium';
