I created one extenssion want to render some Pure HTML from the other blockand phtml file.

I have review some magento core code to render like this but not able to find the things.

In the review form magento still using generic class to render like this.

$fieldset->addField('customer', 'note', ['label' => __('Author'), 'text' => $customerText]);

            'label' => __('Summary Rating'),
            'text' => $this->getLayout()->createBlock(

why magento still using generic class like this is there no way to do like this using UI form?

  • You need to make your own field type to render html. Commented Oct 1, 2018 at 10:41

Please add below code in you Form.php. I have make it for image html you can change as per your need.

$fieldset->addType('productimage', '\<Vendor>\<ModuleName>\Block\Adminhtml\Form\Edit\Tab\ImageRenderer');
    $fieldset->addField('product_image_url', 'productimage', array(           
       'label'     => __('Image')

And add ImageRenderer.php put there.

 * and open the template in the editor.

namespace <Vendor>\<ModuleName>\Block\Adminhtml\Form\Edit\Tab;

 * Description of ImageRenderer
 * @author dharmendra
class ImageRenderer extends \Magento\Framework\Data\Form\Element\AbstractElement
     * get category name
     * @param  DataObject $row
     * @return string
    public function getElementHtml()
        // here you can write your code.
        $html = '';

        if ($this->getValue()) 
            $html = $this->getMediaImageHtml($this->getValue());


        return $html;

    public function getMediaImageHtml($imageName)
        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
        $mediaUrl = $objectManager->get('Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface')
        $html = "<img src='".$mediaUrl.'catalog/product/'.$imageName."' height='100px' width='100px'>";        
        return $html;

Still if you have any query let me know.

also you can add html like below.

            <script type=\"text/javascript\">
            function($, mageTemplate) {
               $('#edit_form').on('change', '#page_attribute_id', function(event){
                   url : '". $this->getUrl('attributeicon/ajax/attributeoptions') . "attribute_id/' +  $('#page_attribute_id').val(),
                   type: 'get',
                   dataType: 'json',
                   success: function(data){

Yes, you can render Pure HTML from the other block and phtml file. A good example, Magento Customer module: admin customer edit form ui element customer_form.xml


  <htmlContent name="customer_edit_tab_view_content">
        <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Adminhtml\Edit\Tab\View" name="customer_edit_tab_view" template="Magento_Customer::tab/view.phtml">
                <argument name="sort_order" xsi:type="number">10</argument>
                <argument name="tab_label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Customer View</argument>
            <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Adminhtml\Edit\Tab\View\PersonalInfo" name="personal_info" template="Magento_Customer::tab/view/personal_info.phtml"/>

Using xml <htmlContent> you can add a block to Ui form.
