I am working on the backend invoice template.

In adminhtml (sales/order/invoice/view/items.phtml), the item list is performed with :

<?php $_items = $this->getInvoice()->getAllItems() ?>
<?php $i=0;foreach ($_items as $_item): ?>
    <?php echo $this->getItemHtml($_item) ?>
    <?php echo $this->getItemExtraInfoHtml($_item->getOrderItem()) ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>

I would like to be able to access items custom options inside that loop.

I tried several things :


but none is working…

Thank you for your help,

  • $_item->getProductOptions() should be the one. What happens when you var_dump it? Does it return NULL? May 16, 2015 at 15:13
  • in fact, I extended the Adminhtml/Sales/Order/Invoice/View/Items.php, with a custom function that performs $_items = $this->getInvoice()->getAllItems(); and a loop with $options = $_item->getItemOptions(); . I then try foreach ($options as $option) which returns an error "Invalid argument supplied for foreach()"
