I am trying to override customer/account/editpost controller.

I am getting error

Recoverable Error: Argument 1 passed to Magento\Customer\Controller\Account\EditPost::__construct() must be an instance of Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context

I created di.xml file at location module/etc/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">

   <preference for="Magento\Customer\Controller\Account\EditPost" 
     type="Namespace\Modulename\Controller\Index\Editpost" />

and controller Controller\Index\Editpost.php

namespace Namespace\Modulename\Controller\Index;

class Editpost extends \Magento\Customer\Controller\Account\EditPost

    public function execute()

        echo "asdasdsda"; die;
        return parent::execute();

1 Answer 1


-- The main reason is that the Controller classes are generated (automatically) in var/generation folder. Please, delete this folder.
-- Make sure the Magento Cache is clear.

Note: May we need to refresh the browser again again because the generation classes need time to re-generate.
