I have found multiple threads related to calling helper function in .phtml.

But I have a case where I need to call phtml file in helper and return HTML.

I have used this code:

//Where $this->_resultPageFactory is the object of \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory
$resultPage = $this->_resultPageFactory->create();
$html = $resultPage->getLayout()
return $html;

It is working fine, but the problem is, it is effecting other stuff like Product title, Media gallery etc (it is changed after using above code)

So, how can I call .pthml from helper?

I have figured out the solution. Copied from gift-card module (Enterprise)

For variables in constructor

protected $_layout;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\View\LayoutInterface $layout
) {
    $this->_layout = $layout;

Now in any of the function where you want to call phtml, use this:

$block = $this->_layout->createBlock(\Vendor\Module\Block\Index::class);
return $block;

  • Please share your constructor code Feb 4, 2020 at 5:55

You can use this:

$block = $this->_layout->createBlock(\Vendor\Module\Block\Index::class);
return $block;

Where $this->_layout is the instance of \Magento\Framework\View\LayoutInterface
