To set a background-image using jQuery with CodeIgniter, you can do the following:

  1. Make sure you have included jQuery in your CodeIgniter project. You can include jQuery in your view file by adding the following script tag in your header or footer file:
1
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.0.min.js"></script>


  1. Create a jQuery function in your view file or in a separate JavaScript file to set the background image. For example:
1
2
3
4
5
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $('#element_id').css('background-image', 'url(<?php echo base_url('path/to/your/image.jpg'); ?>)');
    });
</script>


In this example, replace #element_id with the ID of the element you want to set the background image for, and path/to/your/image.jpg with the path to your image file within the CodeIgniter project.

  1. Make sure to load the view file where you have the jQuery function in your CodeIgniter controller. For example:
1
2
3
4
public function index()
{
    $this->load->view('your_view_file');
}


  1. Access your CodeIgniter project in a web browser and the background image should be set using jQuery. Make sure the image path is correct and the jQuery function is loaded properly.


That's it! You have successfully set a background image using jQuery with CodeIgniter.
