I want to get all the details of a sale order in my controller and then update the status of that order.

Plus how can I pass order ID in URL string and then get it as Magento 1.9 doesn't allow $_GET[] and $_POST[]

  • On admin or frontend? Jul 6, 2018 at 7:26

If you have entity id then use below code to get order details:

$order = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->load($entity_id);

If you have order increment id then use below code to get order details:

$order = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->loadByIncrementId('10000001');

If you want to get data from post or get action then you can use the following code:

$order_id = $this->getRequest()->getParam('order_id'); //This will return only order id

And if you are posting multiple value from form or multiple parameters through url or get method then you need to use below code:

$params = $this->getRequest()->getParams();

Use below code for your form action:

Mage::getUrl('frontname/controller/action', array('id' => 1));//If you want to pass only one parameter

Output URL for above code: http://www.example.com/frontname/controller/action/id/1

And if you have multiple parameters then use below code:

Mage::getUrl('frontname/controller/action', array('id'=>1', '_query'=>array('parm1'=>'value1', 'parm2'=>'value2'))); //If you want to pass multiple parameters

Output URL for above code: http://www.example.com/frontname/controller/action/id/1/?parm1=value1&parm2=value2

  • $order_id = '100000003'; $order = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->loadByIncrementId('10000001'); print_r($order->getData()); and this is returning me empty array, like this Array ( ) Jul 6, 2018 at 7:44
  • Put your order id instead of 10000001 like this $order = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->loadByIncrementId($order_id'); Jul 6, 2018 at 7:46
  • In loadByIncrementId function, we can't pass order id, but it should be accepting increment id of the order, which might be different from order_id.

  • @Manish Joy, Did you saw the above comment where he mentioned that $order_id = '100000003'; which is not a order id. I think you are not checking what he is posting. Jul 6, 2018 at 7:50
  • @SukumarGorai yes, I did, but he is using loadByIncrementId so he is putting correct value to the param, I guess

You can get order details by using this code snippet:


BTW, you can get the parameter by using:



  • this is returning me empty array, like this Array ( ) Jul 6, 2018 at 7:46
