I am working on custom module.The code is written in following order:

class JG_Mymodule_Model_Mysql4_Mymodule{ }

One of my friend wirte code in model like that:

protected function _afterLoad(Mage_Core_Model_Abstract $object)

        $select = $this->_getReadAdapter()->select()
            ->where('findyoursize_id = ?', $object->getId());

        if ($data = $this->_getReadAdapter()->fetchAll($select)) {
            $storesArray = array();
            foreach ($data as $row) {
                $storesArray[] = $row['dimensions_id'];
           $object->setData('in_products', $storesArray);

        return parent::_afterLoad($object);


I want to use $object->setData('in_products') value in my block class , how can I access that value?


I'm not sure why you are copying (not referencing) the in_products property to the session instance, given that it's available on the object instance which you are load()ing.

I recommend to always pull this array from the model instance. $object->getInProducts() and $object->getData('in_products') are both acceptable.

  • I didn't get you point clearly.because this object can't be accessible in block class . is it ?.If you see at my question i use session for that but it is alternate way.I want to do it without session.Hope you got my point – Mahmood Rehman Jul 16 '13 at 4:11
  • In your block's _prepareLayout() method you can instantiate your model using e.g. $model = Mage::getModel(/* class */), call load(/* id */) as you must currently be doing, and then assign the model instance to the block instance scope using $this->setModel($model). You can then retrieve the model instance in the block or in the template using $this->getModel(). – benmarks Jul 16 '13 at 12:46
  • Thanks i got my value like this $vari = Mage::getModel('findyoursize/findyoursize')->load($this->getRequest()->getParam('id')); print_r($vari->getData('in_products'));.I want to chat with you for one other little issue.i have also posted question for that.you can see it on link.[magento.stackexchange.com/questions/5795/… – Mahmood Rehman Jul 17 '13 at 7:02
