I am Created Custom Module "Recipe" (module name). when I add a mass action for status Magento throws an error like "Fatal Error: Call to a member function getOptionArray() on a non-object "

My Grid file code:

$statuses = Mage::getSingleton('recipe/status')->getOptionArray();

Also in my config.xml file code:


So Can any one please tell me what was the mistake?

My Magento Version is:

  • have you created model file if yes then post code of status file Dec 19, 2016 at 7:26
  • I am created model file but did not know what was the code I need to add code of status in model file Dec 19, 2016 at 7:31

  • can you post the config.xml file?

    Make sure you have the class Sigmasolve_Recipe_Model_Status with the method provided by Prashant Valanda and the defined constants STATUS_ENABLED and STATUS_DISABLED

You need to add all option for status like as below

Add file at Namespace/modulename/Model/Status.php

     * Retrieve option array
     * @return array
    static public function getOptionArray()
        return array(
            self::STATUS_ENABLED    => Mage::helper('catalog')->__('Enabled'),
            self::STATUS_DISABLED   => Mage::helper('catalog')->__('Disabled')

Above is example of code

  • I put above code in collection.php file But magento gives same error Dec 19, 2016 at 7:40
  • Updated answer please check it and create file at given path Dec 19, 2016 at 8:57
  • Thanks Prashant : Resolved Error. But Now get "Please select Recipe(s)" this error , i am already select checkbox Dec 19, 2016 at 9:18
  • public function massStatusAction() { $recipeIds = $this->getRequest()->getParam('recipe'); //print_r ($recipeIds);exit; if(!is_array($recipeIds)) { Mage::getSingleton('adminhtml/session')->addError($this->__('Please select Recipe(s)')); } Dec 19, 2016 at 9:20
