Actually i want to set list/grid mode(List Mode) configuration values for category page programmatically not from magento admin backend.if anyone have any idea please guide me.



<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
 <preference for="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct" 
            type="Vendor\Module\Block\Rewrite\Product\ListProduct" />


    namespace Vendor\Module\Block\Rewrite\Product;
    use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;

    class ListProduct extends \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct{
        public function getMode()


Check This File :-


Line No. 28 :-

if ($block->getMode() == 'grid') {
        $viewMode = 'grid';
        $image = 'category_page_grid';
        $showDescription = false;
        $templateType = \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ReviewRendererInterface::SHORT_VIEW;
    } else {
        $viewMode = 'list';
        $image = 'category_page_list';
        $showDescription = true;
        $templateType = \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ReviewRendererInterface::FULL_VIEW;
  • your approach is correct only, but i want to set $block->getMode() value i.e. grid/list programmatically. – Hitesh Balpande Apr 3 '19 at 15:13
  • vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/list.phtml this file put in your theme – Rk Rathod Apr 3 '19 at 15:15
  • /app/design/frontend/thme/themename/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/view/ paste file in this location – Rk Rathod Apr 3 '19 at 15:17
  • i have idea related but i don't want to change from list.phtml,i am trying to set configuration values programmatically – Hitesh Balpande Apr 3 '19 at 15:17
  • which file you want to get value ? – Rk Rathod Apr 3 '19 at 15:19

Try to avoid using preference if possible as getMode() is a public function you can use a plugin instead.
