I want to pass object as a argument from phtml file how can I do this? As I've checked we can pass string using $block->setData('var','test') but didn't found for object.

  • May I know how you write block file? – Jinesh Mar 17 '20 at 9:23
  • I've created block using $block = $this->getLayout()->createBlock('') in phtml and want to pass object as a argument on that block. – Dj3 Mar 17 '20 at 9:38

a simple example to pass a variable from Magento (template, controller, etc) file to a block with php code.

Call a block using the createBlock() method:

echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('module/template_name')
->setData('key', $obj)
  • Using above code we can pass xsi:type="string" argument and I want to pass xsi:type="object" argument which is not possible with above solution. – Dj3 Mar 17 '20 at 9:51
  • you can fetch object like this $block->getData('key') in your phtml – Jinesh Mar 17 '20 at 9:55
