issues in image uploading with php codeigniter

I have some problem in image uploading with php codeigniter.

this is my controller

public function FunctionName()

$profile_pic = $this->input->post('profile_pic');
echo $profile_pic;


It is a simple function and I just want to see the name of the file (image) which I select.

this is my view

<form class="" method="post" action="<?=base_url();?>Controller/FunctionName" enctype="multipart/form-data">

<input type="file" name="profile_pic">

<input type="submit" name="submit">


When I run this script. It shows me a blank page. I cannot get/display the name of the file which I selected. Note that I have auto-loaded the helper. E.g.

$autoload['helper'] = array('url', 'file', 'date', 'form');

$config =         array('file_name'=>$file,
                        'upload_path' => "./folder/",
                        'allowed_types' => "jpg|jpeg|png",
                        'remove_spaces' => FALSE,
                        'overwrite' => TRUE

                    $this->load->library('upload', $config);
