I am trying to send dynamic value in my custom email template. I can send email with my custom template, but dynamic value not able to pass in that email. Here is my code for send email

$parseDataVars = new \Magento\Framework\DataObject();

        $retrievalcode = "somecustomcode";
        $parseDataVars->setData(array('recipient_name' => $retrievalcode));

        $this->temp_id = $this->getTemplateId(self::XML_PATH_EMAIL_TEMPLATE_FIELD);

            ->setTemplateOptions(['area' => 'frontend', 'store' => $storeId])
         ->setTemplateVars(array('data' => $parseDataVars))        

        $transport = $this->_transportBuilder->getTransport();

My email template

<!--@subject Subject Of your email  @-->
{"store url=\"\"":"Store Url",
"var recipient_name":"Recipient name",
"var sender_name":"Sender name",
"var sender_message":"Sender message",
"var initial_value":"Initial value",
"var currency_code":"Currency code"}

{{template config_path="design/email/header_template"}} <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="message-container">

            You purchased a  {{var recipient_name}} at .<br>

            Look forward to seeing you at our store.

{{template config_path="design/email/footer_template"}} <!--footer of template-->

If anyone can know where i make mistake then please let me know why this code is not working.

Thank you

You need to pass values in templateVars like this

        ->setTemplateOptions(['area' => 'frontend', 'store' => $storeId])
      'data' => $parseDataVars,
      'recipient_name' => 'Name',
      'sender_name' => 'Sender Name',
      'currency_code' => 'currency_code',
      'initial_value' => 'initial_value',
      'sender_message' => 'Sender Message'

Let me know if you need further help.

  • Thanks of answer. But it is not working. Still i am not getting recipient_name in email template. As per you code, i got "Name" in my email. But only static text which is written in email template display in my email.
