How to set programmatically multiple arguments for views contextual filters


If you're simply looking to render the view with its arguments (and don't need to do any more work on it), you can just call views_embed_view(). It's called like so:

<?php print views_embed_view($view, $display, $arg1, $arg2, ...); ?>

The $view and $display are the machine names of same. See the above-linked documentation for details.

First you should set this option: View → Advanced → Your Contextual Filter → More → Allow Multiple Values. Then when passing array should be with '+', so, your example:

$array = array('3250+32');
$view = views_get_view('myview');
$content = $view->render(); 

Another one approach, which proved to be quite useful:

$array = array('3250', '32'); 
$view = views_get_view('myview');
$content = $view->render();

pre_execute() method of view object accepts arguments, that will be passed to corresponding contextual filters. E.g. '3250' will be passed to the first contextual filter, '32' - to the second one.
