i have overridden my custom controller in etc/di.xml

<preference for="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct" type="Vendor\Module\Block\Catalog\Product\ListProduct" />
<preference for="ToolbarModel" type="Vendor\Module\Block\Catalog\Product\ProductList\Toolbar" />    <!--ToolbarModel: alias for Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\ProductList\Toolbar -->
                    <!--Override for Block catalog Search layer -->
<preference for="Magento\LayeredNavigation\Block\Navigation" type="Vendor\Module\Block\CatalogSearch\Layer" />
                    <!-- Override model: Catalog Resource-->
<preference for="Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Collection" type="Vendor\Module\Model\Catalog\Resource\Product\Collection" />

my etc/frontend/di.xml is as

<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
                    <!--Override controller -catalogsearch-->
<preference for="Magento\CatalogSearch\Controller\Result\Index" type="Vendor\Module\Controller\CatalogSearch\ResultController" />

Change your controller code to :

namespace Vendor\Module\Controller\CatalogSearch;

use Magento\Catalog\Model\Layer\Resolver;
use Magento\Catalog\Model\Session;
use Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context;
use Magento\Framework\App\ResourceConnection;
use Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface;
use Magento\Search\Model\QueryFactory;

class ResultController extends \Magento\CatalogSearch\Controller\Result\Index

    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        Session $catalogSession,
        StoreManagerInterface $storeManager,
        QueryFactory $queryFactory,
        Resolver $layerResolver
    ) {
    public function execute()
        echo 'my controller';exit;


N.B: You should go with plugin


I am going to build a around plugin example for you.

Put following config to Vendor\Module/etc/frontend/di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\CatalogSearch\Controller\Result\Index">
        <plugin name="stackexchange_catalog_search_result" type="Vendor\Module\Controller\CatalogSearch\ResultController" sortOrder="1"/>

Create a plugin class Vendor\Module/Controller/CatalogSearch/ResultController.php

namespace Vendor\Module\Controller\CatalogSearch;

class ResultController

  • If you need some thing before execute then use beforeExecute(), If you need something at the same line of execute call then use aroundExecute(), If you need after execute then use afterExecute(). Clear?
