Hi,

I am trying to populate a dropdown menu on an events page with a list of locations.

What I wish to do is retrieve all names from a locations table, store them in an array in my event.php controller, pass this to a view which then lists all the locations in a dropdown menu.

Here is the loop in my controller which retrieves the locations..
Code:
$result = $this->locationModel->get_locations_list();
    $arr[] = '';
    foreach ($result as $val)
        $arr[$val->id] = $val->name;


I am already passing a variable to my view called $data like so -
Code:
$this->template->load('admin/template', 'admin/eventEdit', $data);

I have tried passing the $arr variable and the $data array in the above line but this stops the view from rendering.

Please could someone guide me on how to pass the information that is stored in the $arr variable to my view along with the $data variable.

Thanks

Dan

Hi Dan

$data should just be an array, so this should work:

Code:
$data['arr'] = $arr;
$this->template->load('admin/template', 'admin/eventEdit', $data);

Then in your view you would access $arr via "$data['arr']" and treat it just like a normal array.

I would suggest giving $arr a more descriptive name also, just to avoid confusion further down the line..
