To access a model from a view in CodeIgniter, you should follow these steps:

  1. Load the model in the controller: In the controller that is handling the view, load the model using the following code:
1
$this->load->model('Your_model_name');


Replace 'Your_model_name' with the name of the model you want to access.

  1. Pass data to the view: Before loading the view, retrieve data from the model and pass it to the view as an array. For example:
1
2
$data['model_data'] = $this->Your_model_name->get_data();
$this->load->view('your_view', $data);


Replace 'Your_model_name' with the name of the model and 'your_view' with the name of the view. 'get_data()' is a method from the model that retrieves data.

  1. Access the data in the view: In the view file, you can access the data passed from the model using the following syntax:
1
2
3
foreach ($model_data as $data) {
    echo $data->column_name;
}


Replace 'column_name' with the name of the column in your database table that you want to display.


By following these steps, you can access a model from a view in CodeIgniter.
