How to reload a custom library - zashishz - 05-19-2017
I have created a custom library which depends on session data.
In my main controller i am initializing session values and want to reload custom library based on new values every time page is refreshed.
Hence, i am using session_destroy(); at the end of my controller method.
But on page refresh library are not reloaded :
Is there any way i can reload some library again on page refresh.

This has nothing todo with a page reload. This means you are loading that library twice
Because a resource is appended to the CI super object, you can't load a resource twice.
If you provide an alias name for a library as a third argument when loading it, CI will create a new instance of that class and append it to the super object using the provided alias.
You can also just do this
Because the file is loaded into memory you can create a new instance of the class where ever you may need it.
If you don't want to do this, and want to re-use the first instance, create a method in the library that resets it be clearing all the variables
