We will learn how to get current controller or method name in Codeigniter?

In this example we will use two method of $this->router variable for getting controller name and method name as listed bellow:



defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');

class Welcome extends CI_Controller {

	 * Index Page for this controller.
	 * Maps to the following URL
	 * 		http://example.com/index.php/welcome
	 *	- or -
	 * 		http://example.com/index.php/welcome/index
	 *	- or -
	 * Since this controller is set as the default controller in
	 * config/routes.php, it's displayed at http://example.com/
	 * So any other public methods not prefixed with an underscore will
	 * map to /index.php/welcome/

	 * @see https://codeigniter.com/user_guide/general/urls.html
	public function index()
		$controller = $this->router->fetch_class();
		$method = $this->router->fetch_method();

Now you can run this example
