I have a Codeigniter application that is not receiving complete data in the view.

I have a report function in my controller that calls the model to create an array to pass to my view.

The array looks complete when I var_dump it in the model however it is truncated in the view is there a constraint or limit that I have not set or being imposed on the length of parameters?

Thank you

John

Loganathan,

The Controller, the model, the view and the output

Looking at the output in the controller it doesn't display the array in full

But in the view it says Undefined table data ;-(

Thanks for looking

The table->generate() method takes an array or database result as an argument and produces the HTML for your table.  In your books model you have a method called getAll() which queries the database and then calls the table->generate() method. This creates the HTML for the table and returns it to your controller. You then assigns that to $data['table'];

In your view, the $table variable holds the HTML for the table. You are trying to call the table->generate() method again in the view, but this time you're passing in the already generated HTML, which is causing the error

If you want to display your table, then in your view just echo $table.

Thanks for the points :)

No go on the phone number - I don't always have the time to work on EE stuff, so by keeping it all within EE allows me to dip in and out when I have the time.

Besides, posting a question on here will get a good mix of experts to help you out.
