I'm trying to override the Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid class, but no success with that.

My config.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

My overriding PHP File located on /app/code/local/AD/Tweaks/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php:

    class AD_Tweaks_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid extends Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid
        public function __construct()
            // ***This function should be executed, but it fails***
            Mage::log('Class ' . get_class($this) . ' is being created');

I tried even to put a Mage::log('1111'); statement on top of the overriding class (before the class operator), but it probably doesn't loads my PHP file because there is no 1111 shown in logs.

The error is displayed in the browser is:

Fatal error: Call to a member function setSaveParametersInSession() on a non-object in /var/www/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Widget/Grid/Container.php on line 66

    Are you sure it should be AD_Tweaks_Block_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid with double Block word? – Serhii Matrunchyk Sep 7 '14 at 18:01
  • Anyway, it doesn't work. Also are sure that Adminhtml and Block should be swapped? Notice that I'm trying to override Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid — so look to the placement of these words. – Serhii Matrunchyk Sep 7 '14 at 18:03

Well, I solved the problem just by changing the files permissions to www-data instead of root.

  • I am also facing same problem not abel to override Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Permissions_User_Grid – Anisha Shaikh Sep 11 '14 at 9:51
  • @AnishaShaikh, have you tried to do this by placing to the config.xml file <global><blocks><adminhtml><rewrite><permissions_user_grid>Your_Module_Block_Permissions_User_Grid</permissions_user_grid></rewrite></adminhtml></blocks></global> – Serhii Matrunchyk Sep 11 '14 at 13:05
