Fail creating a controller

Fail creating a controller

Hello,

I'm reading the "Magento 2 Development cookbook" and i don't know why the creation of the controller fails. I have:

 app/code/Packt/HelloWorld/etc/frontend/routes.xml
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
        <router id="standard">
            <route id="helloworld" frontName="helloworld">
                <module name="Packt_HelloWorld" />
            </route>
        </router>
    </config>



 app/code/Packt/HelloWorld/Controller/Index/Index.php

    <?php
    
    namespace Packt\HelloWorld\Controller\Index;
    
    class Index extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action
    {
        /**
        * Index action
        *
        * @return $this
        */
    
        public function execute ()
        {
    
        }
    }



I clean the cache, which is the only thing needed according to the book.
and, when i go to the browser /magento2/helloworld

In this part i would should see something... but no.

I continue and put

<?php
namespace Packt\HelloWorld\Controller\Index;

class Index extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action
{
	/** @var \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory */
	protected $resultPageFactory;

	public function __construct (
		\Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
		\Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory
	)
	{
		$this->resultPageFactory = $resultPageFactory;
		parent::__construct($context);
	}
	/**
	* Index action
	*
	* @return $this
	*/

	public function execute ()
	{
		$resultPage = $this->resultPageFactory->create();
		return $resultPage;
	}
}

and after delete var/generation, execute setup:di:compile, clear and flush the cache... i only see a grey window (background-color)

Re: Fail creating a controller

I think it's working, maybe in a strange way.

 

If i put in the execute function:

$this->getResponse()->appendBody('Hello world');

it shows the text, but not load the layout of the shop.

 

So the book is wrong and you need to do a "setup:di:compile" after create a new controller.

Re: Fail creating a controller

Hi @HHFFPP,

 

Can you try this example?

 

namespace Packt\HelloWorld\Controller\Index;
 
use Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface;
 
/**
 * HelloWorld index controller
 */
class Index extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action
{
 
    /**
     * @var \Magento\Framework\Translate\Inline\StateInterface
     */
    protected $inlineTranslation;
 
    /**
     * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface
     */
    protected $scopeConfig;
 
    /**
     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context
     * @param \Magento\Framework\Translate\Inline\StateInterface $inlineTranslation
     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig
     */
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\Translate\Inline\StateInterface $inlineTranslation,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig
    ) {
        parent::__construct($context);
        $this->inlineTranslation = $inlineTranslation;
        $this->scopeConfig = $scopeConfig;
    }
 
    /**
     * Dispatch request
     *
     * @param RequestInterface $request
     * @return \Magento\Framework\App\ResponseInterface
     * @throws \Magento\Framework\Exception\NotFoundException
     */
    public function dispatch(RequestInterface $request)
    {
        return parent::dispatch($request);
    }
}

Re: Fail creating a controller

Aparently it's really working. But in this point of the example you only see the background color, but when i advance in the code i show the layout
