This is my script

function callAjax(){
    var customoptionhtml = document.getElementById("customoption-dynamic").innerHTML; //alert(test);//alert(jQuery(test).text());
    var subtotalhtml = jQuery('.price-wrap').html();//alert(innerHtml);
        type    : "POST",
        url     : "<?php echo Mage::getUrl('module/controller/action'); ?>",
        data    : jQuery('#product_addtocart_form').serialize(),
        data    : { customoption: customoptionhtml,formser:jQuery('#product_addtocart_form').serialize(),subtotal:subtotalhtml } ,
        dataType: "json",
        complete: function(response) {   

This is my controller

public function testAction() {
        $product = $this->getRequest()->getParam('formser');
        $customoption = $this->getRequest()->getParam('customoption');

        $pdctname = $product['product'];
        Mage::log($product, null, '1.log');
        Mage::log($customoption, null, '2.log');


I got $product in log file as :


I want to get "product=1"(marked in bold) from the above data(that is the product id).

I tried as $pdctdet = $product['product']; .But not working.

Please give a solution.

  • You can try with json_decode($product) and let me know which output is display. Commented Jul 5, 2017 at 5:04
  • I have used $decodedata =json_decode($product);Mage::log("test".$decodedata, null, 'today1.log'); Gives output as "test".Decode array is not getting

Try this:

Use this in your controller:

$data = $this->getRequest()->getPost();
$productid = $product;

"product=1" will be in $productid variable.


As per your log $product contains as a string. if you need $productId then you need to convert this string like below.

$product = "form_key=ZWdfUerRFgl9oR4r&product=1&related_product=&options%5B9%5D=tryty&options%5B10%5D=85&options%5B11%5D=132&options%5B12%5D=156&options%5B13%5D=181&options%5B16%5D=&options%5B17%5D=&options%5B19%5D=&options%5B18%5D=&options%5B14%5D=183&options%5B15%5D=&name=ry&companyname=ty&email=test%40test.com&phnmbr=7894561233";

$products = explode("&",$product);
foreach($products as $string){
    list($k, $v) = explode('=', $string);
    $result[ $k ] = $v; 
echo $productId = $result['product']; // 1
