I am creating a custom model and rewriting the sales/order_status model and create the function

public function _afterSave(Mage_Core_Model_Abstract $object){

    echo "here"; exit;

this function is executing perfectly but i want to get data. how can I achieve this task?

better using $this instead of $object, try it like Mage::log($this->_getEventData(), null, 'debug.log', true)


use the $object variable.
Use Mage::log($object->getData(), null, 'debug.log', true) to see what values you have available and then use what ever you need.

The code above works if you rewrite the Mage_Sales_Model_Resource_Order_Status class

For Mage_Sales_Model_Order_Status your method should look like this:

public function _afterSave()
    Mage::log($this->getData(), null, 'debug.log', true);

Again, you should see in var/log/debug.log the values you have available.

  • wait...are you rewriteing Mage_Sales_Model_Order_Status or Mage_Sales_Model_Resource_Order_Status ?
