To send data from a table to a form in CodeIgniter, you can follow these steps:

  1. Retrieve the data from the database table using a Model class in CodeIgniter. Create a Model class in your CodeIgniter application folder, e.g., "Table_model.php". Inside the Model class, create a function that retrieves the data from the table. For example, you can create a function named "get_data()" that uses the CodeIgniter's Active Record methods to retrieve the data. In the function, write a query to retrieve the desired data from the table and return the result using return $query->result();.
  2. Load the Model and retrieve the data in your Controller function. In your Controller class, load the Model by adding $this->load->model('Table_model'); in your function. Call the Model's function to retrieve the data. For example, assign the Model's function result to a variable like $data['table_data'] = $this->Table_model->get_data();.
  3. Pass the data to your View. Load the View and pass the data as an array to it using $this->load->view('your_view_name', $data);.
  4. Display the data in your View and create the form. In your View file, access the data using the variable passed from the Controller. For example, you can use a foreach loop to iterate over the data and display it. Inside the loop, create a form with input fields to edit/update the data. You can pre-fill the input fields with the retrieved data using the value attribute.
  5. Submit the form and update the respective data in the table. Create a new Controller function to handle the form submission. In the function, retrieve the form data using $this->input->post() or any other method available in CodeIgniter to get the form data. Use a Model function to update the table data based on the submitted form data. Once the update is done, you can redirect the user back to the table listing page or display a success message.


Note: Replace "Table_model" with your Model class name, "get_data" with your desired function name, and adjust the code according to your table structure and requirements.
