I have to override customer ResourceModel's customer.php file in my custom module.
I have tried but its not working.so what is correct way to override Model? I follow below steps to override Model.

I have my own module called Namespace_Module with a di.xml file,

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"   xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<preference for="Magento\Customer\Model\ResourceModel\Customer"   type="Namespace\Modulename\Model\ResourceModel\Customer" />

Then I have created php file, Namespace\Modulename\Model\ResourceModel\Customer.php and try to override core file.but its not working for me.

So please anyone help me to solve my problem.

  • You must not do this. What do you want achieved? – KAndy Mar 10 '16 at 5:39

your file Namespace\Modulename\etc\di.xml code as below

<?xml version="1.0"?>    
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<preference for="Magento\Customer\Model\ResourceModel\Customer" type="Namespace\Modulename\Model\ResourceModel\Customer" />

Your Model code file Namespace\Modulename\Model\ResourceModel\Customer.php

namespace Namespace\Modulename\Model\ResourceModel;

class Customer extends \Magento\Customer\Model\ResourceModel\Customer

    protected function _beforeSave(\Magento\Framework\DataObject $customer)
        //your code here

hope it will helpful to you
