Just like label, but more squishy

This is the helper to create the Twitter Bootstrap badge markers.

Note Using this widget will not help you reduce the count of symbols you have to type to get a badge in your view! Quite the contrary, you'll need to write more. You have to make your own shorthands, if you want. This widget solves the problem of properly building the required HTML scaffolding and nothing else.

Basic example of usage is this:

        'context' => 'success',
        // 'default', 'success', 'info', 'warning', 'danger'
        'label' => '2',

Here's all configuration properties which you can set for TbBadge widget.

Property Description
string context = "default" in combination with the alert types this property determine the badge color, so value may be one of ['default', 'success', 'info', 'warning', 'danger'].
string label = "" What will be printed on the label
boolean encodeLabel = true Whether to HTML-encode the contents of the label. If set to false, you can include other HTML inside this badge.
array htmlOptions = array() HTML attributes of the badge element. Note that this element will be span.

Badges showcase

    array('default', 'success', 'info', 'warning', 'danger')

    $this->widget('booster.widgets.TbBadge', compact('context', 'label'));
