Is there a way to get the order object from this event


Apparently it doesn't know about the order by using this: $observer->getEvent()->getOrder() .I know I could use the save order after or before event, but I would like to use that event . Is there a way to get the order object from that event ?

Thank you !

You can get order object on controller_action_postdispatch_checkout_onepage_saveorder event by like this,

$order = Mage::registry('hss_order');

You can find the usage of this event in below location,



app\code\core\Mage\Paypal\Model\Observer.php in setResponseAfterSaveOrder method

  • No, it will not work, but you can also do the same thing like magento. register the registry in checkout_submit_all_after and get the order object controller_action_postdispatch_checkout_onepage_saveorder event. If you don't want to set the dependency on PayPal
