form_open() not working in codeigniter


I am trying to build a simple form in CodeIgniter. My VIEW 'input_view.php' is:

<html> <head> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo "$base/$css"?>"> </head> <body> <div id="header"> <?php $this->load->view('books_header'); ?> </div> <div id="menu"> <?php $this->load->view('books_menu'); ?> </div> <?php //echo $title; ?> <?php echo form_open('books/input'); ?> <?php echo $title; ?> <?php echo form_input('title'); ?>; <?php echo $author; ?> <?php echo form_input('author'); ?> <?php echo $publisher; ?> <?php echo form_input('publisher'); ?> <?php echo $year; ?> <?php echo form_dropdown('year',$years); ?> <?php echo $available; ?> <?php echo form_checkbox('available','yes',TRUE); ?> <?php echo $summery; ?> <?php echo form_textarea('summery'); ?> <?php echo form_submit('mysubmit', 'Submit'); ?> <?php echo form_close(); ?> <div id="footer"> <?php $this->load->view('books_footer'); ?> </div> </body> </html>

But when I tried http://localhost/CodeIgniter/index.php/books/input, it does not show the form, instead shows page upto menu. Whats the problem here?


Did you load form helper in your controller where you call your simple form view?????



You must load helper file form for form usage on codigniter like this.



Refer to <a href="http://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-guide/helpers/form_helper.html" rel="nofollow">CodeIgniter User Guide</a>, you must load form helper before do it like this


You may put that syntax on your Controller or at top of your View before you use form_open, form_input or anything else.



in view page

or autoload the file go to application/config/autoload

there find

$autoload['helper'] = array(''); $autoload['helper'] = array('from'); //input from helper it will allow in both view and controller page
