Eg I have a block that is on the page to edit the purchase order, both the editing page of the order as the block passes through the event sales_order_load_after when obeserver the event can not know what they spent for the event, if it was page or block.

How to know who called or went by event?

I have a fraud clearsales module, this module is on the order page to check I just click on the button analyze, when I click on it, it passes the event "sales_order_load_after" need to know who is passing by the magnitude of the event is ClearSale or page, I know that the two are going through the event as a test print.

enter image description here





class Ceicom_ManageSale_Model_Observer
    public function someMethod($observer)
  • Can you add some concrete examples or code to your question to clarify what you're asking? on a side note: events are, as far as I know, rarely called from a block, only from controllers and models.

Events like *_load_after have no information where or by whom they were called.

But using request object you can get area, mudule, controller and action name and check them as you want.

    $oArea           = Mage::app()->getArea();
    $oRequest        = Mage::app()->getRequest();
    $sModuleName     = $oRequest->getModuleName();
    $sControllerName = $oRequest->getControllerName();
    $sAtionName      = $oRequest->getActionName();

But you will have problem if some model (in your case sales_order) can be called twice on the same page.
