For better understanding please have a look this view


with the following implementation



You can get the variables from etc/view.xml files in a couple of ways.

Let's assume we want to get the value of product_image_size from the Magento_Wishlist module... https://github.com/magento/magento2/blob/2.4.4/app/code/Magento/Wishlist/etc/view.xml

In a Template (.phtml) File

<?= $block->getVar('product_image_size', 'Magento_Wishlist') ?>

Remember to properly escape this output depending on how you are using it (not shown)

In a PHP Class

    ->getVarValue('Magento_Wishlist', 'product_image_size');

Here is an example within a full custom block...

namespace YourNamespace\YourModule\Block;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Magento\Framework\View\ConfigInterface;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context;

class YourBlock extends Template
     * @var ConfigInterface
    protected $viewConfig;

     * Constructor
     * @param Context $context
     * @param ConfigInterface $viewConfig
     * @param array $data
    public function __construct(
        Template\Context $context,
        ConfigInterface $viewConfig,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->viewConfig = $viewConfig;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

     * Get product_image_size
     * @return int
    public function getProductImageSize(): int
        return (int) $this->viewConfig->getViewConfig()
            ->getVarValue('Magento_Wishlist', 'product_image_size');


I found the answer here. It provides all the needed steps you do to get the variable values in view.xml https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/frontend-dev-guide/themes/theme-images.html#view_xml_vars
