Can I call Mage::getUrl() directly using $this-> in Magento2?

How can I use below code in Magento2?

$link = Mage::getUrl('*/*/*', array('_current'=>true, '_use_rewrite'=>true, '_query'=>$this_params));

In a block, you can use $this->getUrl() with the parameters as you know them from Magento 1. In a template, use $block->getUrl() instead.

Outside blocks and templates, you need access to \Magento\Framework\UrlInterface, so if it is not available yet in the current class, add it as a constructor parameter, assign it to $this->urlBuilder, then use $this->urlBuilder->getUrl().

    before add it as a constructor parameter check if $context has already an accessible instance of urlBuilder.

  • $context does have the urlInterface already. Should be able to do $this->_url->getUrl();

You can simply call this method in magento 2 using below way,

//define query array pass to url
    $query = ['str1' => 'value1', 'str2' => 'value2',];
    $link = $block->getUrl('*/*/*', ['_current' => true, '_use_rewrite' => true, '_query' => $query]);

You can also pass action value instead of */*/* in above url, like 'customer/account/login' as per your required action.


You can use this in Magento 2 like

$block->getUrl('*/*/*', ['_current' => true, '_use_rewrite' => true])
