I'm working on a module in the admin part but can someone tell me please how I can load just my template from my controller without the admin menu in the left, the title and the footer.

here is one of my secondary controller :

  namespace Mymodule\AdminPage\Controller\Adminhtml\Secondcontroller;

  class Index extends \Magento\Backend\App\Action
    * @var \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory
    protected $resultPageFactory;

     * Constructor
     * @param \Magento\Backend\App\Action\Context $context
     * @param \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Backend\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory
    ) {
         $this->resultPageFactory = $resultPageFactory;

    public function execute()
        return  $resultPage = $this->resultPageFactory->create();

and there is his the layout :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
            Module Mymodule
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Magento\Backend\Block\Template" template="Mymodule_AdminPage::secondary.phtml"/>

Add this code in your layout.xml file under <body> tag

<referenceBlock name="page.menu" remove="true"/>
<referenceBlock name="footer" remove="true"/>
<referenceBlock name="header" remove="true"/>
<referenceBlock name="logo" remove="true"/>
<referenceBlock name="page.title" remove="true"/>

After that you have to override below file


inject \Magento\Framework\App\Request\Http $request in __construct method and add $this->request = $request; in __construct function

and in this file change setActiveMenu function to these

public function setActiveMenu($itemId)
    $action     = $this->request->getFullActionName();
    if($action != 'yourrouter_controller_action')
        $menuBlock = $this->layout->getBlock('menu');
        $parents = $menuBlock->getMenuModel()->getParentItems($itemId);
        foreach ($parents as $item) {
            /** @var $item \Magento\Backend\Model\Menu\Item */
    return $this;
