problem drop -down dynamically
#4

If you're new to PHP programming and CodeIgniter, you better learn to do it the right way!

Get the data from a model and return an array in the format expected by the form_dropdown function.
Example of the format expected:
PHP Code:
$options = array(
 
       'small'         => 'Small Shirt',
 
       'med'           => 'Medium Shirt',
 
       'large'         => 'Large Shirt',
 
       'xlarge'        => 'Extra Large Shirt',
); 

And in your view, create the dropdown list with the form_dropdown helper function:

PHP Code:
echo form_dropdown('shirts'$options'large'); 

Loading data directly in the controller is bad design and bad practice. Reinventing the wheel to create a dropdown list is also bad practice. I strongly suggest you read the user guide to learn all the features availble in CodeIgniter to make your life easier.
