    • Hi KK ! ;) no i’ll not upload the complete code, it’s a tutorial, you have to make it by yourself to really understand how it works. it would be too easy to copy this without trying to understand. Sorry KK ^_^

  1. Hi Pierre!,

    Its awesome for the beginners to know the structure. Thanks for your time to make this for us. It is very useful.


  2. Hello,

    I would love to see a tutorial that works on loading dependent data in a tab.

    For example.. a Product Favorites module.

    One table has the list of favorites and another tables has products for each favorite list.

    Its more like adding another dimension to your Admin Grid tutorial

    Thank You.
