Language Helper

The Language Helper file contains functions that assist in working with language files.

Loading this Helper

This helper is loaded using the following code:


The following functions are available:

lang('language line', 'element id')

This function returns a line of text from a loaded language file with simplified syntax that may be more desirable for view files than calling $this->lang->line(). The optional second parameter will also output a form label for you. Example:

echo lang('language_key', 'form_item_id');
// becomes <label for="form_item_id">language_key</label>
