Usage examples

To accountштп the number of views of an object, use the component method Yii::$app->views-set() module, into which you need to transfer the context and identifier. The same parameters are a condition for unique selection/filtering when receiving a view counter in the method Yii::$app->views-get() of component.

Store and get the views count

<?php
    if ($views = Yii::$app->views) {
        $count = $views->set(
            'page-views', // context (string, human-readable description of the section)
            'site/index', // target of object (string|null, by default is resolved route)
            true // flag, true - for return actualy count of views,
            true // flag, true - for register only unique views
        );
        echo $count;
    }
?>

Only get the count of views

<?php
    if ($views = Yii::$app->views) {
        $count = $views->get(
            'page-views', // context (string, human-readable description of the section)
            'site/index', // target of object (string|null, by default is resolved route)
        );
        echo $count;
    }
?>

Routing

Use the Module::dashboardNavItems() method of the module to generate a navigation items list for NavBar, like this:

<?php
    echo Nav::widget([
    'options' => ['class' => 'navbar-nav navbar-right'],
        'label' => 'Modules',
        'items' => [
            Yii::$app->getModule('views')->dashboardNavItems(),
            ...
        ]
    ]);
?>
