I create a custom module in which if data is found the template is shown else I need to show default 404-page content & set the status to 404.

I have tried below code to set the status to 404 without changing the URL(i.e, not redirecting to noroute)

$resultPage->setStatusHeader(404, '1.1', 'Page Not Found');
$resultPage->setHeader('Status', '404 Page Not Found');

But I'm unable to show the default 404 error page content.

I have tried below code to forward the controller to default no route page, but it's not working for me.


Can anyone help me out from this? Thanks in advance.

Use this class for redirection

public function __construct
    \Magento\Framework\Controller\Result\ForwardFactory $forwardFactory
    $this->_forwardFactory = $forwardFactory;

Now you can redirect to 404 page using this

    $resultForward = $this->_forwardFactory->create();
    return $resultForward;
