we are displaying text field in view page to check COD availability.

enter image description here


echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('core/template')->setTemplate('checkdelivery/checkdelivery.phtml')->toHtml();

in view.phtml we are calling below file . but i want to call static block identifier [identifier code - check] instead of below file.


<div class="block block-list block-check-delivery">
    <div class="block-title">
        <?php $blockLabel = Mage::getStoreConfig('checkdelivery/general/block_title'); ?>
        <strong><span><?php echo $this->__($blockLabel) ?></span></strong>
    <div class="block-content" >        
            <input name="zipcode" size="17" type="text" id="zipcode" value="<?php echo Mage::getModel('core/cookie')->get('zip'); ?>" maxlength="10" class="input-text" placeholder="<?php echo $this->__('Enter ZIP Code'); ?>"/>
            <button type="button" name="zip-check" title="Check" class="button" id="zip-check" ><span><?php echo $this->__('Check'); ?></span></button>
            <div id="delivery-message"></div>
            <?php $defaultHtml = Mage::getStoreConfig('checkdelivery/general/default_html'); ?>
            <div id="delivery-html"><?php if(Mage::getModel('core/cookie')->get('message')){
    echo Mage::getModel('core/cookie')->get('message');
    $defaultHtml; } ?></div>



    Event.observe('zip-check', 'click', function(event){
        new Ajax.Request("<?php echo $this->getUrl('checkdelivery/index/index') ?>", {
            method: "get",
            parameters: {zipcode : $('zipcode').value },
            onSuccess: function(transport) {
                 var json = transport.responseText.evalJSON();
                 $('delivery-message').setStyle({ color: json.color});

static block code :

<p>{{block type ="core/template" template = "checkdelivery/checkdelivery.phtml"}}</p>

Use the below code:

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('block_identifier')->toHtml(); 

{{block type="core/template" template="checkdelivery/checkdelivery.phtml"}}

If you have created CMS block named 'block_identifier' from admin panel. Then following will be code to call them in .phtml

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('block_identifier')->toHtml();
