To pass an array to the main view in CodeIgniter, you can use the second parameter of the load->view() method.

  1. In your controller, create an array that you want to pass to the view. For example:
1
2
3
4
5
$data = array(
    'name' => 'John Doe',
    'age' => 30,
    'country' => 'USA'
);


  1. Load the view and pass the array as the second parameter. For example:
1
$this->load->view('main_view', $data);


Here, main_view is the name of your view file.

  1. In your main view file (main_view.php), you can access the passed array using the same keys. For example:
1
2
3
<p>Name: <?php echo $name; ?></p>
<p>Age: <?php echo $age; ?></p>
<p>Country: <?php echo $country; ?></p>


Here, you can simply access the array values using the corresponding keys ('$name', '$age', and '$country').


Note: Make sure you have already loaded the 'view' library in your controller, either in the constructor or using the $this->load->library('view') method.
