I am just extended configurable block using a custom block, but I couldn't get the "selected_configurable_option" while changing the configurable options [ not getting simple product id ].

enter image description here

Did this can be achieved by extending the block like Block Test.php

class Test extends \Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Block\Product\View\Type\Configurable{


<?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\Checkout\Controller\Cart\Add" type="Vendor\MultipleProductsToCart\Controller\Cart\Add" />
    <preference for="Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Block\Product\View\Type\Configurable" type="Vendor\MultipleProductsToCart\Block\Catalog\Product\Test" />

or do I need to override the configurable.phtml. How to solve this problem ?

Using a custom Theme:

  1. Create folder app/design/frontend/<Vendor>/<Theme>/Magento_ConfigurableProduct/templates/product/view/type/options/
  2. Copy the file from vendor/magento/module-configurable-product/view/frontend/templates/product/view/type/options/configurable.phtml there
  3. Edit as you wish (e.g. add a console.log)
  4. Flush Cache Storage

I reckon that is a bit late, but works on Magento 2.1.7

  • This is not working in magento 2.3.1. I am using similar approch to over-write Grouped product info inside app/design/frontend/<Vendor>/<Theme>/Magento_GroupedProduct/templates/product/view/type/grouped.phtml. And Grouped product is working but why configurable product is not working using respective file & folder info. Oct 23, 2019 at 15:26
