I am working with events in opencart, I have created a module with 2 events in it, the first one is an admin trigger and is working fine but the second is targeting catalog/controller/common/header/after where I want to add a variable before it is passed to the view, this does not seem to working as I am getting an undefined variable test from the view, could anyone point me in the right direction please.

Code: Select all

    class ControllerExtensionModuleVonderevents extends Controller {

          public function install()

            $this->model_extension_event->addEvent('Add_Vonder_Admin_Menu', 'admin/view/common/column_left/before', 'extension/module/vonderevents/addMenuItems');//works fine
            $this->model_extension_event->addEvent('Update_Vonder_Catalog_Header', 'catalog/controller/common/header/after', 'extension/module/vonderevents/updateCatalogCommonHeader');//does not work!

          }//end function

          public function uninstall() {

          // add the vonder menu items
          public function addMenuItems($route, &$data)
                $data['menus'][] = array(
                'id'       => 'menu-vonder',
                'icon'     => 'fa-bicycle',
                'name'     => 'Vonder Management',
                'href'     => '',
                'children' => array(
                            'name'=> 'Home Page Options',
                            'href'=> $this->url->link('extension/module/vonderoptions', 'token=' . $this->session->data['token'], true),
                            'children'=> array()

          }//end function addMenuItems

          public function updateCatalogCommonHeader($route, &$data)
                  $data['test']= '********************************';

                echo "*****************************************";

          }//end function updateCatalogCommonHeader

    }//end class

Correct. OC v3.x releases handles controllers from the loader Engine with the events, not under.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Did you create this file?

Is there a updateCatalogCommonHeader method in this file?
