# Editing the summaryText in a Yii CGridView

Last updated:

## remove summaryText altogether

Sometimes you don't need or want that summary text that shows up at the top of a CGridView saying things like Displaying 1-100 of 450 result(s). . Maybe in that case you would actually want it, but not in cases like Displaying 1-3 of 3 result(s).. It sometimes gets annoying and takes up unnecessary space.

$this->widget('zii.widgets.grid.CGridView',array( 'dataProvider'=>$your_dp,
'summaryText' => '',


just set summaryText to ''.

## add another paginator at the top of the grid

set the template attribute on you CGridView:

'template' => "{summary}\n{pager}\n{items}\n{pager}",
