Yii2 Invalid Call: Setting read-only property



I have a Post model that has a many-many relationship with Tags.

Defined in Post model:

public function getTags(){
    return $this->hasMany(Tags::className(), ['id' => 'tag_id'])
        ->viaTable('post_tags', ['post_id' => 'id']);

But Post::tags is read-only. So when I try to set them in the Controller, I get an error:

Invalid Call – yiibaseInvalidCallException

Setting read-only property: appmodelsPost::tags

The controller is using load to set all the properties:

public function actionCreate(){
    $P = new Post();
    if( Yii::$app->request->post() ){
        return $this->redirect('/posts');
    return $this->render('create', ['model'=>$P]);

The input field in the view:

<?= $form->field($model, 'tags')->textInput(['value'=>$model->stringTags()]) ?>

Why is Post::tags read-only? And whats the proper way to set a model relationship?





Here tags

public function getTags(){
    return $this->hasMany(Tags::className(), ['id' => 'tag_id'])
        ->viaTable('post_tags', ['post_id' => 'id']);

is a relation name and returns the object and is not just a attribute or database column.

You cannot use it with textInput() like other attribute for eg email, first_name.

So you are given error of Setting read-only property.

In order to remove this error, you need to create new attrbute or property to model like below

class Post extends yiidbActiveRecordsd
    public $tg;
    public function rules()
        return [
            // ...
            ['tg', 'string', 'required'],
    // ... 

In view file

<?= $form->field($model, 'tg')->textInput(['value'=>$model->stringTags()]) ?>
