Posting with multiple models

I spent a good bit of time trying to figure out how to render multiple models in a form and have them each validate properly.

Knowing the solution, it seems quite obvious, but it took a while to track down the proper syntax.

In this example I have a custom CForm which contains a few different $model properties, in addition to the base form data.

To call the validation on multiple models in the form, simply modify any calls of
to use an array of models as the first parameter as such:
CActiveForm::validate( array($model, $model->subModel, $model->subModel2) );
