To update a CodeIgniter view dynamically, you can use Ajax to retrieve data from the server and update the view without refreshing the entire page. Here is an example of how you can achieve this:

  1. Create a controller method in CodeIgniter that returns the updated HTML content:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
public function update_view()
{
    // Perform some operations to get updated data
    $data = array(
        'new_content' => '<p>New updated content</p>'
    );

    // Load the view with the updated data
    $this->load->view('updated_view', $data);
}


  1. Create a view file (e.g. updated_view.php) that will display the updated content:
1
2
3
<div>
    <?php echo $new_content; ?>
</div>


  1. Create a JavaScript function to make an Ajax request to the controller method and update the view dynamically:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
function updateView() {
    $.ajax({
        url: "<?php echo base_url('controller_name/update_view'); ?>",
        type: "GET",
        success: function(data) {
            $('#viewContainer').html(data);
        }
    });
}


  1. Finally, call the updateView() function to update the view dynamically:
1
2
3
4
<button onclick="updateView()">Update View</button>
<div id="viewContainer">
    <!-- Initial content will be displayed here -->
</div>


With these steps, you can update a CodeIgniter view dynamically using Ajax requests.
