I need to Override Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/Sales/Order/CreateController.php

Step 1:- I write in etc/config.xml

                   <Mycompany_Mymodule before="Mage_Adminhtml">Mycompany_Mymodule_Adminhtml</Mycompany_Mymodule>

Step 2:- I put CreateController.php file on this location /var/www/magento/app/code/community/Mycompany/Mymodule/controllers/Adminhtml/Sales/Order

Step 3: I did changes in controller class name

class Mycompany_Mymodule_Adminhtml_Sales_Order_CreateController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Sales_Order_CreateController
{ }

I am unable to override by this implementation. Please, Help me to override this controller.

  • did you add the file app/etc/modules/Mycompany_Mymodule.xml?

  • and do you get an error or just nothing happens? Nov 25, 2014 at 15:53
  • Yes, I added and it is working. Nov 25, 2014 at 16:02
  • @DavidManners I am not getting any error in log file. It just nothing happens. I have checked default CreateController.php is loading. Nov 25, 2014 at 16:11
  • @PranavKrMurari you controller has no code in it so it will simply call the original controller or am I missing something? Nov 25, 2014 at 16:25

You need to include the admin controller class you are extending off - it doesn't get auto included in controllers:

class Mycompany_Mymodule_Adminhtml_Sales_Order_CreateController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Sales_Order_CreateController
{ }
  • Thanks for your suggestion but still no luck. Nov 26, 2014 at 9:49
  • Double check all of your syntax, my guess is something is not declared correctly or you have a typo somewhere. Nov 26, 2014 at 10:26
  • @All Thanks for your valuable suggestion. There was class conflict. CreateController was called in another also. I have resolved my issue. Dec 1, 2014 at 8:56
