I used

<?php echo $this->getViewFileUrl('Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg'); ?>
<?php echo $block->getViewFileUrl('Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg'); ?>

But it's working only frontend, I want it in adminhtml block file.

I used this in renderer column of grid File:

namespace Vendor\Module\Block\Adminhtml\Product\Renderer;

use Magento\Framework\DataObject;

class FileIcon extends \Magento\Backend\Block\Widget\Grid\Column\Renderer\AbstractRenderer

    public function render(DataObject $row)

        echo $this->getViewFileUrl('Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg');
        echo $block->getViewFileUrl('Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg');

        //return $file;;

  • try with $this->_storeManager->getStore()->getBaseUrl().'pub/static/frontend/Namespace/Modulename/en_US/images/demo.jpg'; – Rakesh Jesadiya Mar 28 '17 at 12:10
  • This works only when image available in static folder also this is not right way to get url. – Prince Patel Mar 28 '17 at 12:26
  • Vendor_Module is your custom module name. – Khoa TruongDinh Mar 29 '17 at 7:22
  • Did you try only with echo $this->getViewFileUrl('Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg');? – Khoa TruongDinh Mar 29 '17 at 7:35
  • See my updated answer. We can try with $this->getViewFileUrl('Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg'); – Khoa TruongDinh Mar 29 '17 at 8:28

Use \Magento\Framework\View\Asset\Repository class

protected $_assetRepo;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\View\Asset\Repository $assetRepo,
) {
    $this->_assetRepo = $assetRepo;

Now, you can get image URL by

echo $this->_assetRepo->getUrl("Vendor_Module::images/demo.jpg");

Take a look at the Magento Marketplace module:



The image is vendor/magento/module-marketplace/view/adminhtml/web/partners/images/magento-connect.png

Our image should be under web:


Try to get with the module prefix in your template:

<?php echo $block->getViewFileUrl('Your_Module::images/demo.jpg'); ?>

Remember to clear Magento Cache and may need to delete view_preprocessed folder.


In your case, you can try with

  • yes I have already image in adminhtml/web folder but it's seems like $this->getViewFileUrl() or $block->getViewFileUrl() not working – Prince Patel Mar 29 '17 at 6:04
  • I have tested. I'm pretty sure it will work, did you try to echo and run static content deploy content? – Khoa TruongDinh Mar 29 '17 at 7:28
  • Check now I edited question with file where I try to get URL. – Prince Patel Mar 29 '17 at 7:28
