Passing a variable to the template.php file in FuelPHP Framework

I'm new to FuelPHP framework and I'm currently working on a project where I need to pass a variable to the `template.php` file. I've looked through the documentation and couldn't find a clear explanation on how to do this.

I have a variable called `$pageTitle` in my controller file that I want to use in the `template.php` file to set the page title dynamically. Can someone please guide me on how to achieve this?

I would really appreciate it if you could provide some example code or step-by-step instructions on how to pass this variable from the controller to the `template.php` file. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! I've encountered a similar situation before while working with FuelPHP. To pass a variable to the `template.php` file, you can use the `$template` variable in your controller to set the variable you want to pass. Here's how you can do it:

In your controller file, you can set the variable `$pageTitle` like this:

php
// Assuming you have already loaded the template
$this->template->pageTitle = $pageTitle;


Then, in your `template.php` file, you can access the variable using the same name:
php
<title><?php echo $pageTitle; ?></title>


This way, the value of `$pageTitle` will be passed from your controller to the `template.php` file, allowing you to dynamically set the page title based on your needs. Hope this helps!

Please let me know if you have any further questions or need more clarification.

Hi there! I've faced a similar scenario while developing with FuelPHP, and I'd be happy to share my approach with you. To pass a variable to the `template.php` file, you can utilize the `View::set_global()` method. Here's how you can do it:

In your controller file, you can set the variable `$pageTitle` like this:

php
// Assuming you have already loaded the template
\View::set_global('pageTitle', $pageTitle);


By calling `View::set_global()`, you make the variable accessible throughout your application's views, including the `template.php` file. So, in your `template.php` file, you can simply access the variable like this:
php
<title><?php echo $pageTitle; ?></title>


Using this method, you can pass the value of `$pageTitle` from your controller to the `template.php` file effortlessly. If you have any further questions or need more assistance, feel free to ask. Good luck with your project!
