Page layout and handler are two different elements at Magento layout.

Page layout is 1column,2 columns-left,2 columns-right,cutome_home.


handler is cms_index_index.xml,catalog_product_view,default,catalog_category_view etc

In Magento2, a page layout element can be managed using Layout handler .

At Magento, a unique handler created basically on Full Action Name every page.

If you trying at .phtml file

then use


At BLock class use
