How To Get All Attributes of an Element Using jQuery ?

You need to use attributes property that contains them all:

$(this).each(function() {
  $.each(this.attributes, function() {
    // this.attributes is not a plain object, but an array
    // of attribute nodes, which contain both the name and value
    if(this.specified) {
      console.log(, this.value);
If you want to grab only the attributes that has prefix like data-* from image tags. Use data() property. data-* attributes are supported through .data() and will return all of the data- attribute inside an object as key-value pairs.
$('img').each(function() {
   var data = $(this).data();
    $.each(data, function(key, value) {    
      console.log(key, value);

How To Remove Specific Class And Attributes From Html Tags Using PHP?

I recommend PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser, let you manipulate HTML in a very easy way!. You can find tags on an HTML page with selectors just like jQuery.
$html = "<div>
<span class="test1 test2 test3" data-id="5"  >text 1</span><br />
<span class="test1 test3 test2">text 4</span></div>";
If just want to either empty or remove any class that has "test2" in it and remove attributes like "data-id". You can use PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser to remove specific class and attribute from HTML tags like below. In order to delete specific class from HTML tags, you can use SIMPlE PHP DOM Parser and preg_replace function. You can remove attributes easily using removeAttribute method.
// Find all elements with the class test2 attribute
foreach($html->find('[class=test2]') as $e){
    $e->removeAttribute("data-id"); //remove attribute 
    $e->class = preg_replace("/(?:^|\s)editable(?:\s|$)/msi", " ", $e->class);

echo $html;
The outcome
<span class="test1 test3">text 1</span><br />
<span class="test1 test3">text 4</span></div>

If you guys know any other efficient way, do share for our users. :)

How to Upload Files with CodeIgniter and AJAX?

Uploading files asynchronously with CodeIgniter can be confusing and frustrating experience. In this tutorial I will share the steps how I successfully implemented a file upload with CodeIgniter and ajax.

You need CodeIgniter, jQuery, and the script AjaxFileUpload which you can copy from bottom of this tutorial.

It's assumed you have a working knowledge of CodeIgniter and jQuery. But no prior knowledge of AjaxFileUpload is necessary. It is also assumed that you already have successfully set up CodeIgniter. For the sake of brevity and clarity, we are not going to use database to save file information.

Step 1. Creating a form
Create your view and name it upload.php. This view will contain our upload form.

<!doctype html>
 <script src=""></script>
 <script src="<?php echo base_url()?>js/custom.js"></script>
 <script src="<?php echo base_url()?>js/ajaxfileupload.js"></script>
 <h1>Upload File</h1>
 <form method="post" action="" id="upload_file">
 <label for="userfile">File</label>
<input type="file" name="userfile" id="userfile" size="20" /> <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" /> </form> <h2>Files</h2> <div id="files"></div> </body> </html>
At the top; jQuery, AjaxFileUpload, and our own custom javascript files are loaded.
Then, we created a standard HTML form. The empty #files div is where the confirmation/failure message will be displayed.
Step 2. Custom Javascript
Create custom.js inside 'js' folder and Place the following code:
$(function() {
    $('#upload_file').submit(function(e) {
            url             :base_url + './upload/upload_file/', 
            secureuri       :false,
            fileElementId   :'userfile',
            dataType: 'JSON',
            success : function (data)
               var obj = jQuery.parseJSON(data);                
                if(obj['status'] == 'success')
                    $('#files').html('Some failure message');
        return false;
The JavaScript hijacks the form submit and AjaxFileUpload takes over. In the background, it creates an iframe and submits the data via that.
We then check our return (which will be in JSON). Depending on the status(success/error), we display message.
Step 3. Uploading a File
The Controller
The URL we are uploading to is /upload/upload_file/, so create a new method in the upload controller, and place the following code in it.
public function upload_file()
  $status = "";
  $msg = "";
  $file_element_name = 'userfile';

 if ($status != "error")
  $config['upload_path'] = './uploads/';
  $config['allowed_types'] = 'gif|jpg|png|doc|txt';
  $config['max_size'] = 1024 * 8;
  $config['encrypt_name'] = FALSE;

  $this->load->library('upload', $config);
  if (!$this->upload->do_upload($file_element_name))
    $status = 'error';
    $msg = $this->upload->display_errors('', '');
   $data = $this->upload->data();
   $image_path = $data['full_path'];
      $status = "success";
      $msg = "File successfully uploaded";
  $status = "error";
  $msg = "Something went wrong when saving the file, please try again.";
 echo json_encode(array('status' => $status, 'msg' => $msg));

This code loads in the CodeIgniter upload library with a custom config. Remember to delete the temp file off the server, and echo out the JSON so we know what happened.

Files Folder
We should also create the folder our files will be uploaded to. Create new file in your web root called 'uploads', making sure it is writable by the server.

That's it, tutorial complete! If you run it, you should be able to upload a file, see it appear, all without leaving the page.

Note: I haven't added displaying, editing and deleting files.

Copy and paste the following javascript code and save as ajaxfileupload.js.


  createUploadIframe: function(id, uri)
			//create frame
      var frameId = 'jUploadFrame' + id;
      var iframeHtml = '<iframe id="' + frameId + '" name="' + frameId + '" style="position:absolute; top:-9999px; left:-9999px"';
        if(typeof uri== 'boolean'){
iframeHtml += ' src="' + 'javascript:false' + '"';

        else if(typeof uri== 'string'){
iframeHtml += ' src="' + uri + '"';

			iframeHtml += ' />';

      return jQuery('#' + frameId).get(0);			
  createUploadForm: function(id, fileElementId, data)
		//create form	
		var formId = 'jUploadForm' + id;
		var fileId = 'jUploadFile' + id;
		var form = jQuery('<form action="" method="POST" name="' + formId + '" id="' + formId + '" enctype="multipart/form-data"></form>');	
			for(var i in data)
				jQuery('<input type="hidden" name="' + i + '" value="' + data[i] + '" />').appendTo(form);
		var oldElement = jQuery('#' + fileElementId);
		var newElement = jQuery(oldElement).clone();
		jQuery(oldElement).attr('id', fileId);
		//set attributes
		jQuery(form).css('position', 'absolute');
		jQuery(form).css('top', '-1200px');
		jQuery(form).css('left', '-1200px');
		return form;

  ajaxFileUpload: function(s) {
    // TODO introduce global settings, allowing the client to modify them for all requests, not only timeout		
    s = jQuery.extend({}, jQuery.ajaxSettings, s);
    var id = new Date().getTime()    
		var form = jQuery.createUploadForm(id, s.fileElementId, (typeof('undefined'?;
		var io = jQuery.createUploadIframe(id, s.secureuri);
		var frameId = 'jUploadFrame' + id;
		var formId = 'jUploadForm' + id;		
    // Watch for a new set of requests
    if ( && ! )
			jQuery.event.trigger( "ajaxStart" );
    var requestDone = false;
    // Create the request object
    var xml = {} 
    if ( )
      jQuery.event.trigger("ajaxSend", [xml, s]);
    // Wait for a response to come back
    var uploadCallback = function(isTimeout)
			var io = document.getElementById(frameId);
 xml.responseText = io.contentWindow.document.body?io.contentWindow.document.body.innerHTML:null;
        	 xml.responseXML = io.contentWindow.document.XMLDocument?io.contentWindow.document.XMLDocument:io.contentWindow.document;

				}else if(io.contentDocument)
 xml.responseText = io.contentDocument.document.body?io.contentDocument.document.body.innerHTML:null;
        	xml.responseXML = io.contentDocument.document.XMLDocument?io.contentDocument.document.XMLDocument:io.contentDocument.document;
				jQuery.handleError(s, xml, null, e);
      if ( xml || isTimeout == "timeout")
        requestDone = true;
        var status;
        try {
          status = isTimeout != "timeout" ? "success" : "error";
          // Make sure that the request was successful or notmodified
          if ( status != "error" )
            // process the data (runs the xml through httpData regardless of callback)
            var data = jQuery.uploadHttpData( xml, s.dataType );  
            // If a local callback was specified, fire it and pass it the data
            if ( s.success )
              s.success( data, status );
            // Fire the global callback
            if( )
              jQuery.event.trigger( "ajaxSuccess", [xml, s] );
          } else
            jQuery.handleError(s, xml, status);
        } catch(e)
          status = "error";
          jQuery.handleError(s, xml, status, e);

        // The request was completed
        if( )
          jQuery.event.trigger( "ajaxComplete", [xml, s] );

        // Handle the global AJAX counter
        if ( && ! )
          jQuery.event.trigger( "ajaxStop" );

        // Process result
        if ( s.complete )
          s.complete(xml, status);


				{	try
					} catch(e)
						jQuery.handleError(s, xml, null, e);

				}, 100)

        xml = null

    // Timeout checker
    if ( s.timeout > 0 )
        // Check to see if the request is still happening
        if( !requestDone ) uploadCallback( "timeout" );
      }, s.timeout);

			var form = jQuery('#' + formId);
			jQuery(form).attr('action', s.url);
			jQuery(form).attr('method', 'POST');
			jQuery(form).attr('target', frameId);
				jQuery(form).attr('encoding', 'multipart/form-data');   			
				jQuery(form).attr('enctype', 'multipart/form-data');			

    } catch(e)
      jQuery.handleError(s, xml, null, e);
		jQuery('#' + frameId).load(uploadCallback	);
    return {abort: function () {}};	


  uploadHttpData: function( r, type ) {
    var data = !type;
    data = type == "xml" || data ? r.responseXML : r.responseText;
    // If the type is "script", eval it in global context
    if ( type == "script" )
      jQuery.globalEval( data );
    // Get the JavaScript object, if JSON is used.
    if ( type == "json" )
      eval( "data = " + data );
    // evaluate scripts within html
    if ( type == "html" )

    return data;

How To Display Images From Folder Using Codeigniter?

If you need to display images from folder/directory in the CodeIgniter, then the Directory Helper is what you looking for. The Directory Helper file contains functions that assist in working with directories.
$this->load->helper('directory'); //load directory helper
$dir = "uploads/images/"; // Your Path to folder
$map = directory_map($dir); /* This function reads the directory path specified in the first parameter and builds an array representation of it and all its contained files. */

foreach ($map as $k)
     <img src="<?php echo base_url($dir)."/".$k;?>" alt="">
<?php }

Result: You will get all the images from the folder.
