<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<layout version="0.1.0">

    <reference name="content">
        <block type="example/example" template="example/email2.phtml"/>
        <block type="example/example" template="catalog/nextbits_example.phtml"/>



        echo $this->getContent(); //disp emaill call method from block example


class NextBits_Example_Block_Example extends Mage_Core_Block_Template
    public function getContent()
        $model = Mage::getModel('example/example')->load('1');
        $data = $model->getData();

        $model = Mage::getModel('example/example')->getCollection();

        echo '<pre>';

        foreach($model as $obj){
            echo "<br>";


its output is only for one field suppose i get either email, or first name or lastname , Now if i want to display result of all the field , How can i get result of all field?

and also want only list of result filed wise like all id, then all the firstname and then all lastname like this..then what to do?

  • Try $obj->getData(), without any parameters.

Try this:

$collection = Mage::getModel('example/example')->getCollection();
$keys = array_keys($collection->getFirstItem()->getData());

now you have the you need.

foreach ($keys as $key){ // loop through all the keys (fname, lname, email... 
    foreach ($collection as $obj){//loop throught each object 
        print_r($obj->getData($key));//get the value for a speficic key. 
  • A note here: This line $keys = array_keys($collection->getFirstItem()->getData()); only works when there is at least 1 existing row in table
