Return an array to Ajax success with PHP


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I'm trying the following.. returning an array from a php function to Ajax success but the alert seems to only display undefined.



public function reply()
	$item_id = $this->uri->segment(3);
	$type = $this->uri->segment(4);

	if($type == 1){
	$data['get_news_item'] = $this->Newsletter_model->get_news_item($item_id);

	$test = array( "Paul", "Mike");

	return $test;



			type: "POST",
			url: "<?php echo site_url(); ?>newsletter/reply/"+id+"/"+type,
			cache: false,

			success: function (data){

				alert(data[0]); // So this should display "Paul"?

Ah ok,


So I changed to echo and I seem to be getting something through now. The data is coming through as


"Paul, Mike" using alert(eval(data));


Is this correct? .. Should I not be able to go alert(data[0]) or similar to get the individual values?
