  • Array is a value of a key that corresponds to standard Yii classes (like db, request, mailer, and so on), and a file with this array is located within config directory
  • WidgetClass::widget() and WidgetClass::begin calls in case WidgetClass is a descendant of yii\base\Widget
  • $field->widget() method call on yii\widgets\ActiveField and its descendants
