Populate Birth Date Dropdown List Using CodeIgniter

Submitted by: 

In my previous post I uploaded a source code called “Populate Dropdown List Using CodeIgniter”. In that sample code, I used the country field to populate the value using the helper function.
This time, I’ll show you on how to populate a birth date field with three separate dropdown list.
Here’s the code to call the helper and populate the array with values from our function:

  1. $this->load->helper('birthdate');
  3. $this->data['birth_date_year'] = buildYearDropdown('birth_date_year', $this->input->post('birth_date_year'));
  4. $this->data['birth_date_month'] = buildMonthDropdown('birth_date_month', $this->input->post('birth_date_month'));
  5. $this->data['birth_date_day'] = buildDayDropdown('birth_date_day', $this->input->post('birth_date_day'));

And this is how you pass the value from the controller to the view:

  1. echo $birth_date_day;
  2. echo $birth_date_month;
  3. echo $birth_date_year;

Please see attached file.
