I have created a custom block, as I want to add this layout to my current layout.

Following is my block:

<referenceContainer name="sidebar.main">
        <block class="Vendor\ModuleName\Block\Frontend\Block" name="ucTntlZsQVjVytW4xjtfdypv9LTzRsFP" template="Vendor_ModuleName::myBlock.phtml"/>

I want to add this block to my current block for that I created following event:


Now how can I add this block to layout using PHP

Need Help!!

  • May I know the purpose why you created an event for adding a custom block? It can be added simply. – Dhara Bhatti May 30 '19 at 10:19
  • i want to add a slider on any page at any location according to his need.. – Waqar Ali May 30 '19 at 10:21
  • For That purpose why you don't try widget? – Rutvee Sojitra May 30 '19 at 10:22
  • Then as you described xml sample code, is perfect one. You just need to use same <block> tag in the required xml layout files. – Dhara Bhatti May 30 '19 at 10:23
  • @RutveeSojitra i have already done this by widget .. but my client want this functionality in admin form – Waqar Ali May 30 '19 at 10:23

Try this event: layout_load_before

<event name="layout_load_before">
    <observer name="bannerlayoutloadbefore" instance="Vendor\ModuleName\Observer\Bannerlayoutloadbefore" shared="false" />

And use the below php code to render the layout:

$layout = '<referenceContainer name="sidebar.main">
        <block class="Vendor\ModuleName\Block\Frontend\Block" name="ucTntlZsQVjVytW4xjtfdypv9LTzRsFP" template="Vendor_ModuleName::myBlock.phtml"/>

Use the above code in your observer's execute function.

  • It seems bad practice to write layout XML inside PHP. – Ben Crook May 30 '19 at 10:28
  • @BenCrook any other way to do this?? – Waqar Ali May 30 '19 at 10:29

    Yes but I have checked Amasty's extension who uses the same code in their Part Finder extension to load dynamic layout and I think they are reputed Magento extension provider. I am just trying answere just according to the question Waqar asked. – Sukumar Gorai May 30 '19 at 10:30
