I am Migrating a website from Magento 1 to Magento 2. In Magento 1, I was using

<?php $isReviewScreen = Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getRequest()->getRouteName() == 'review'; ?>

I am trying to get the equivalent of this code in magento 2? Please help me to do it.

  • can i use <?php $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();?> for this? – Yudi Dec 5 '16 at 5:56
  • @Yudi you can get it directly then why are you using object manager? – Qaisar Satti Dec 5 '16 at 5:58

  • @Yudi $this->getRequest()->getRouteName(); as it is mention in link answers – Qaisar Satti Dec 5 '16 at 6:05

you can get directly in controller


or phtml file

public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface $request,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_request = $request;

public function getroute(){

You can also get Controller name, action name using below method in template file directly,


If you want to get inside Observer file you have to create __construct() method and set RequestInterface.
