I am facing issue to create module. I created one module and I given apply to system admin to enable disable. So, Right now I am doing module hide/show using below code.

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$module_enable = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface')->getValue('magefilter/magefilter/enable');
if(isset($module_enable) && $module_enable==1){

but is there any way if I can disable module from admin then it is disable by xml file.

I means is there any way to not ovverride that xml.


  • Hi, This is just suggestion instead you think to set condition in the XML file you can create Helper and create a function that will check the module enable condition so that you can use anywhere in the project. – Praveen Chelumalla Nov 20 '19 at 6:46
  • @PraveenChelumalla actually I override some XML file based on install-module. Once I install the module then XML is overridden. It does not depend on the admin enable/disable option. So, I want to XML depend on the admin option. is there any way? – sarvesh Dineshkumar Patel Nov 20 '19 at 6:49
  • Okay, then I also need to research this thing. – Praveen Chelumalla Nov 20 '19 at 6:52
  • try ifconfig in your xml block – Sukumar Gorai Nov 20 '19 at 8:32
  • @SukumarGorai how ? – sarvesh Dineshkumar Patel Nov 20 '19 at 9:04

You can find your module from here 'app/etc/config.php' and replace 1 to 0 then it will be disabled. Clean cache

Hope it works for you.

  • Thanks, bro. But I don't want to disable the module from everywhere. I just disable for the front side. thanks – sarvesh Dineshkumar Patel Nov 20 '19 at 9:54

Please go to your directory and find 'app/etc/config.php

If you want disable module just replace 1 to 0. For your check our below example.

'Developer_Categoryimages' => 1, Replace To 'Developer_Categoryimages' => 0

After that flush Magento Cache.

  • thanks but I do not want like that. If I Disable from admin then configuration page and then disable from the only front side. I mean no-load XML and CSS or anything in front. – sarvesh Dineshkumar Patel Nov 22 '19 at 12:36

Please go to your directory and find 'app/etc/config.php

If you want disable module just replace 1 to 0. For your check our below example.

'Developer_Categoryimages' => 1, Replace To 'Developer_Categoryimages' => 0

open the terminal and navigate to Magento webroot.

$ cd /var/www/html/magento2

$ php bin/magento setup:upgrade

$ php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

$ cd generated

$ chmod -R 777 /var/www/html/magento2/generated

$ php bin/magento cache:flush


if you want to used only XML file for Enable and Disable Module. you have to Used ifconfig in Block conteiner and Refernece Container.

<block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\View" name="category_desc_main_column" template="category/desc_main_column.phtml" ifconfig="config_path/group/field" before="category.products"/>

<move element="category.image" destination="content" ifconfig="config_path/group/field" before="-"/>

and what is ifconfig value and how it's come click here
