I am trying to fill in the field: Company, when adding a new address, retrieving the company name from the current address.

I am editing: /www.vadotex.biz/web/app/design/frontend/vadotex/default/template/customer/address/edit.phtml

and have tried:

<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getCustomer()->getShippingAddress()->getCompany()) ?>


<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getCustomer()->getAddresses()->getCompany()) ?>

as value of the field.

I want it to copy the company name of the current shipping address, but when using above codes, it wont show me any value, and just cuts off the form.

Try ->getPrimaryShippingAddress() or ->getPrimaryBillingAddress() on the getCustomer() and use ->getCompany()` for the data


In that block (Mage_Customer_Block_Address_Edit), you need to do $this->getAddress()->getCompany().

If you do $this->getCustomer(), you're getting the customer object, from which you can get addresses a well, but getAddresses() or getShippingAddress() are not valid methods of the customer object. See Mage_Customer_Model_Customer you want to retrieve addresses from this object.

  • I have tried your answer, but this gives me no value in the field, while i do have the company name filled in my current address.
