I have one custom extension installed, and I want to capture its save/update/delete action events and I am not sure how can I capture those events. Please help.

I have successfully able to capture those events for core modules like product and categories but not sure how can I perform the same for the custom extension.

I have tried adding eventPrefix = 'aw_blog' on AW_Blog_Model_Blog class and than in my config.xml file


but still its not working for me. Please help. Thanks

  • @Himanshu thanks for the tip , but is it good practice to directly place dispatch event ? I mean in third party extension?

  • Yes why not!, because in the end it will be helpful in extending that data. or else you can catch magento's action controller events if you don't want to add dispatch event.
