Returns

# getRawCookies()

Since
3.5.0

Returns the “raw” cookie collection.

Works similar to getCookies() (opens new window), but these cookies won’t go through validation, and their values won’t be hashed.

View source (opens new window)

Returns

yii\web\CookieCollection (opens new window) – The cookie collection.

# redirect()

Redirects the browser to the specified URL.

This method adds a "Location" header to the current response. Note that it does not send out the header until send() (opens new window) is called. In a controller action you may use this method as follows:

return Yii::$app->getResponse()->redirect($url);

In other places, if you want to send out the "Location" header immediately, you should use the following code:

Yii::$app->getResponse()->redirect($url)->send();
return;

In AJAX mode, this normally will not work as expected unless there are some client-side JavaScript code handling the redirection. To help achieve this goal, this method will send out a "X-Redirect" header instead of "Location".

If you use the "yii" JavaScript module, it will handle the AJAX redirection as described above. Otherwise, you should write the following JavaScript code to handle the redirection:

$document.ajaxComplete(function (event, xhr, settings) {
    var url = xhr && xhr.getResponseHeader('X-Redirect');
    if (url) {
        window.location = url;
    }
});

View source (opens new window)

Arguments

  • $url (string (opens new window), array (opens new window)) – The URL to be redirected to. This can be in one of the following formats:

  • a string representing a URL (e.g. "http://example.com")

  • a string representing a URL alias (e.g. "@example.com")

  • an array in the format of [$route, ...name-value pairs...] (e.g. ['site/index', 'ref' => 1]). Note that the route is with respect to the whole application, instead of relative to a controller or module. yii\helpers\Url::to() (opens new window) will be used to convert the array into a URL.

Any relative URL that starts with a single forward slash "/" will be converted into an absolute one by prepending it with the host info of the current request.

  • $statusCode (integer (opens new window)) – The HTTP status code. Defaults to 302. See https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-10 (opens new window) for details about HTTP status code
  • $checkAjax (boolean (opens new window)) – Whether to specially handle AJAX (and PJAX) requests. Defaults to true, meaning if the current request is an AJAX or PJAX request, then calling this method will cause the browser to redirect to the given URL. If this is false, a Location header will be sent, which when received as an AJAX/PJAX response, may NOT cause browser redirection. Takes effect only when request header X-Ie-Redirect-Compatibility is absent.

Returns

$this – The response object itself

# sendAndClose()

Attempts to closes the connection with the HTTP client, without ending PHP script execution.

This method relies on flush() (opens new window), which may not actually work if mod_deflate or mod_gzip is installed, or if this is a Win32 server.

Throws

# sendContentAsFile()

Sends the specified content as a file to the browser.

Note that this method only prepares the response for file sending. The file is not sent until send() (opens new window) is called explicitly or implicitly. The latter is done after you return from a controller action.

\yii\web\Response::sendContentAsFile()

View source (opens new window)

Arguments

  • $content (string (opens new window)) – The content to be sent. The existing content (opens new window) will be discarded.

  • $attachmentName (string (opens new window)) – The file name shown to the user.

  • $options (array (opens new window)) – Additional options for sending the file. The following options are supported:

  • mimeType: the MIME type of the content. Defaults to 'application/octet-stream'.

  • inline: boolean, whether the browser should open the file within the browser window. Defaults to false, meaning a download dialog will pop up.

Returns

self – Self reference

Throws

# sendFile()

Sends a file to the browser.

Note that this method only prepares the response for file sending. The file is not sent until send() (opens new window) is called explicitly or implicitly. The latter is done after you return from a controller action.

The following is an example implementation of a controller action that allows requesting files from a directory that is not accessible from web:

public function actionFile($filename)
{
    $storagePath = Yii::getAlias('@app/files');

    // check filename for allowed chars (do not allow ../ to avoid security issue: downloading arbitrary files)
    if (!preg_match('/^[a-z0-9]+\.[a-z0-9]+$/i', $filename) || !is_file("$storagePath/$filename")) {
        throw new \yii\web\NotFoundHttpException('The file does not exists.');
    }
    return Yii::$app->response->sendFile("$storagePath/$filename", $filename);
}

\yii\web\Response::sendFile()

View source (opens new window)

Arguments

  • $filePath (string (opens new window)) – The path of the file to be sent.

  • $attachmentName (string (opens new window), null (opens new window)) – The file name shown to the user. If null, it will be determined from $filePath.

  • $options (array (opens new window)) – Additional options for sending the file. The following options are supported:

  • mimeType: the MIME type of the content. If not set, it will be guessed based on $filePath

  • inline: boolean, whether the browser should open the file within the browser window. Defaults to false, meaning a download dialog will pop up.

Returns

self – Self reference

# setCacheHeaders()

Sets headers that will instruct the client to cache this response.

View source (opens new window)

Returns

self – Self reference

# setLastModifiedHeader()

View source (opens new window)

Arguments

Returns

self – Self reference

# setNoCacheHeaders()

Since
3.5.0
