I want to use value of config.xml and system.xml file from module in a file when located in "lib" directory in root of magento, but I don't know how!

Tried many searches but didn't find my answer, because all of them use in classes and models of self extension, I need read from app/community/Company/Mymodule/etc/config.xml ...


The whole configuration is merged into one big XML structure, therefore you can just access it via:


But I'm not sure what happens with the system.xml

Have a look here, this should do.


    $config = Mage::getConfig()->loadModulesConfiguration('system.xml')

    Mage::dispatchEvent('adminhtml_init_system_config', array('config' => $config));
    $this->_sections = $config->getNode('sections');
    $this->_tabs = $config->getNode('tabs');
  • enough if I can use config.xml ...
