I have a phtml file view.php and its block class View.php. I need to show that phtml on a modal on checkout page and to do that I'm pre-loading phtml file using following code :

<div id="modal-form" >
    <?php include ($block->getTemplateFile('XYZ_module::view.phtml')) ?>
        ) {
            var options = {
                type: 'popup',
                responsive: true,
                innerScroll: true,
                title: 'Some Title',
                buttons: [{
                    text: $.mage.__('Continue'),
                    class: '',
                    click: function () {

            var popup = modal(options, $('#modal-form'));

And then I'm opening this modal using following code :


Right now everything is working from loading in the phtml file, in the modal and opening that modal on a button click. What's not working is the functions of View.php block class. I think the issue is with the pre-loading in phtml file using include function and because of that the php functions are hitting the server once and not when I actually open the modal. Can I reload or just load that phtml file dynamically when the modal opens on a button click?

Best solution is to set a default block and add your template to it.

 <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock("Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template")
