Guys - this is very simple - I have an array - see below. All I want to do is pass the data from the DB to a template and display it on the screen. Once I have understood how to do that I'll be away... The code below works fine in the controller - I can echo it - var_dump it you name it!!!

BUT I cannot get the stuff in a view - I just need someone to show me an example both in the controller and in the template.

<code>
public function getStudent()
   {
      
      $members = Student::get()->where("\"Name\" = 'Sarah Berens'");

      foreach($members as $member)
      {
       $data = array('Name' => $member->Name);

      
      }

      var_dump($data);
      //return $data;
      //($members);
   }

</code>

I have thrashed around for hours trying to do this - poking and hoping - all sorts. But no good - Please help!! Thanks

Right - cracked it! In case there is anybody else in a similar fix - here we go...

Controller:

$students = new ArrayList();

foreach($members as $member)
{

$students->push((new ArrayData(array(
'File' => $member->Name
))));
}

And for the view:

<% loop Student %>
<p>$File</p>
<% end_loop %>

Can't believe it took me so long - but there we go... Hope it helps!
