How to change template of block with alias in extension

How to change template of block with alias in extension

I'm trying to change the template of a block to a template defined in my extension.

 

The layout file "Magento\Checkout\view\frontend\layout\checkout_cart_item_renderers.xml" has this piece of code:

 

<update handle="checkout_item_price_renderers"/>
    <body>
        <referenceBlock name="checkout.cart.item.renderers">
            <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer" as="default" template="cart/item/default.phtml">
                <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer\Actions" name="checkout.cart.item.renderers.default.actions" as="actions">
                    <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer\Actions\Edit" name="checkout.cart.item.renderers.default.actions.edit" template="Magento_Checkout::cart/item/renderer/actions/edit.phtml"/>
                    <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer\Actions\Remove" name="checkout.cart.item.renderers.default.actions.remove" template="Magento_Checkout::cart/item/renderer/actions/remove.phtml"/>
                </block>
            </block>
            <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer" as="simple" template="cart/item/default.phtml">
                <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer\Actions" name="checkout.cart.item.renderers.simple.actions" as="actions">
                    <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer\Actions\Edit" name="checkout.cart.item.renderers.simple.actions.edit" template="Magento_Checkout::cart/item/renderer/actions/edit.phtml"/>
                    <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer\Actions\Remove" name="checkout.cart.item.renderers.simple.actions.remove" template="Magento_Checkout::cart/item/renderer/actions/remove.phtml"/>
                </block>
            </block>
        </referenceBlock>
    </body>

I've copied the default.phtml to my extension and added a column, but how can I overwrite the template that is used?

For now I have this layout file defined in my extension.

 

<body>
     <referenceBlock name="checkout.cart.item.renderers">
         <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer" as="default" template="ORG_ShoppingCart::default.phtml"/>
         <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Item\Renderer" as="simple" template="ORG_ShoppingCart::default.phtml"/>
     </referenceBlock>
</body>

But than I get the error: "'The element 'checkout.cart.item.renderers' already has a child with alias 'default''".

Hi @rklerck,

 

alias name can be anything. Change default to something else in your modle and then try it.

Re: How to change template of block with alias in extension

the logic code is : 

<body>
<referenceBlock name="checkout.cart.item.renderers">
 <referenceBlock name="default">
  <action method="setTemplate">
   <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">ORG_ShoppingCart::default.phtml</argument>
  </action>
 </referenceBlock>
 <referenceBlock name="simple">
  <action method="setTemplate">
   <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">ORG_ShoppingCart::default.phtml</argument>
  </action>
</referenceBlock>
</body>
