I need to show category tree, just like in admin section, in my custom page. I viewed this solution in magento.stackexchange.com. It was good but limited to 2 levels of category. I need all the categories. How can it be done?

I searched over internet for solution to this but got nothing useful. Then I diverted my research towards Magento core where I found \Magento\Catalog\Block\Adminhtml\Category\Tree class where I found a function getTree(). Then I tried to observed it's return value in my custom template file. The effort became fruitful as I got the desired result.

I created a block file where I have injected the above class as:

<?php
namespace Vendor\Module\Block;

class CategoriesColle extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
{

    ...
    protected $adminCategoryTree;

    /**
     * @param \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context
     * @param \Magento\Catalog\Helper\Category $categoryHelper
     * @param array $data
     */
    public function __construct(

       ...
        \Magento\Catalog\Block\Adminhtml\Category\Tree $adminCategoryTree

    )
    {
        ...
        $this->adminCategoryTree = $adminCategoryTree;

    }
    public function getTree()
    {
        return $this->adminCategoryTree->getTree(); 
    }
...

}

The return value of the getTree() is the desired array of the category tree which can be verified by dumping the value in template file.

  • how can use it in .phtml file ? – HaFiz Umer Jul 10 at 15:54
  • you can use in layout by block class="vendor/module/block/CategoriesColle" template="Vendor_Module:yourcustomphtml.phtml" – Dinesh Rajput Jul 19 at 6:33

You can create your own tree with custom collection as follows: Firstly add a field in your ui-form:

<field name="custom" component="Namespce_Modulename/js/select-category" sortOrder="20" formElement="select">
<argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
    <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
        <item name="filterOptions" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>//to add filter in select-ui
        <item name="multiple" xsi:type="boolean">false</item>//select multiple or not
        <item name="showCheckbox" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>//to show checkboxes
        <item name="disableLabel" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>
    </item>
</argument>
<settings>
    <required>true</required>
    <validation>
        <rule name="required-entry" xsi:type="boolean">true</rule>
    </validation>
    <elementTmpl>ui/grid/filters/elements/ui-select</elementTmpl>
    <label translate="true">Select Category</label>//label to Field
    <dataScope>data.custom</dataScope>//To map
    <componentType>field</componentType>
    <listens>
        <link name="${ $.namespace }.${ $.namespace }:responseData">setParsed</link>
    </listens>
</settings>
<formElements>
    <select>
        <settings>
            <options class="Namespace\ModuleName\Ui\Component\Form\Category\Options"/>
        </settings>
    </select>
</formElements>

Now create Js file to map the field's value:

Namespace_Modulename/view/adminhtml/web/js/select-category.js

define([
'Magento_Ui/js/form/element/ui-select'
], function (Select) {
'use strict';
return Select.extend({
    /**
     * Parse data and set it to options.
     *
     * @param {Object} data - Response data object.
     * @returns {Object}
     */
    setParsed: function (data) {
        var option = this.parseData(data);
        if (data.error) {
            return this;
        }
        this.options([]);
        this.setOption(option);
        this.set('newOption', option);
    },
    /**
     * Normalize option object.
     *
     * @param {Object} data - Option object.
     * @returns {Object}
     */
    parseData: function (data) {
        return {
            value: data.category.entity_id,
            label: data.category.name
        };
    }
});
});

Create a file to get options to display:

Namespace\ModuleName\Ui\Component\Form\Category\Options.php

<?php
namespace Namespace\ModuleName\Ui\Component\Form\Category;

use Magento\Framework\Data\OptionSourceInterface;
use Magento\Category\Model\ResourceModel\Category\CollectionFactory as      CategoryCollectionFactory;
use Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface;

/**
* Options tree for "Categories" field
*/
class Options implements OptionSourceInterface
{

protected $categoryCollectionFactory;

/**
 * @var RequestInterface
 */
protected $request;

/**
 * @var array
 */
protected $categoryTree;

/**
 * @param CategoryCollectionFactory $categoryCollectionFactory
 * @param RequestInterface $request
 */
public function __construct(
    CategoryCollectionFactory $categoryCollectionFactory,
    RequestInterface $request
) {
    $this->categoryCollectionFactory = $categoryCollectionFactory;
    $this->request = $request;
}

/**
 * {@inheritdoc}
 */
public function toOptionArray()
{
    return $this->getCategoryTree();
}

/**
 * Retrieve categories tree
 *
 * @return array
 */
protected function getCategoryTree()
{
    if ($this->categoryTree === null) {
        $collection = $this->categoryCollectionFactory->create();

        $collection->addNameToSelect();

        foreach ($collection as $category) {
            $categoryId = $category->getEntityId();
            if (!isset($categoryById[$categoryId])) {
                $categoryById[$categoryId] = [
                    'value' => $categoryId
                ];
            }
            $categoryById[$categoryId]['label'] = $category->getName();
        }
        $this->categoryTree = $categoryById;
    }
    return $this->categoryTree;
}

}

Hope it helps!

// Get all the children categories of given category collection factory foreach ($collection as $key => $value) { $temp = $value->getData(); $categoryObj = $this->_repository->get($temp['entity_id']); $subcategories = $categoryObj->getChildrenCategories(); foreach($subcategories as $key2 => $subcategorie) { if($subcategorie->hasChildren()) { $childCategoryObj = $this->_repository->get($subcategorie->getId()); $childSubcategories = $childCategoryObj->getChildrenCategories(); foreach($childSubcategories as $childSubcategorie) { $temp2 = $childSubcategorie->getData(); $temp1['children'][] = $temp2; } $temp['children'][] = $temp1; } } $item[$key][] = $temp; } // Here you can get all the children upto 2 level in "item" variable echo "<pre>"; print_r($item);
