Magento : Créer un contrôleur dans l’admin sous un nouvel onglet

Nous avons déjà vu dans un précédent billet comment surcharger un contrôleur dans Magento. Cette fois, je vais vous montrer comment créer votre propre contrôleur dans l’admin et cela proprement, car il y a beaucoup de solutions proposées ici et là mais elles ne fonctionnent pas toutes et sont parfois obsolètes. Nous accéderons à notre contrôleur depuis un nouvel onglet que nous allons là aussi définir nous-même.


Avant de rentrer dans le code, voici à quoi va ressembler l’admin Magento :

Et voici le contenu de notre module :

Configuration du module

app/code/community/JR/CreateAdminController/etc/config.xml :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <!-- Helper definition needed by Magento -->
                        <foo_bar before="Mage_Adminhtml">JR_CreateAdminController_Adminhtml</foo_bar>

Création de l’onglet et des sous-onglets

app/code/community/JR/CreateAdminController/etc/adminhtml.xml :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <mycustomtab module="jr_createadmincontroller" translate="title">
            <title>My Custom Tab</title>
                <index module="jr_createadmincontroller" translate="title">
                    <title>Index Action</title>
                <list module="jr_createadmincontroller" translate="title">
                    <title>List Action</title>
                    <custom translate="title" module="jr_createadmincontroller">
                        <title>My Controller</title>
                            <index translate="title">
                                <title>Index Action</title>
                            <list translate="title">
                                <title>List Action</title>

Création du contrôleur

app/code/community/JR/CreateAdminController/controllers/Adminhtml/CustomController.php :

class JR_CreateAdminController_Adminhtml_CustomController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Controller_Action
    public function indexAction()
            ->_title($this->__('Index Action'));
        // my stuff
    public function listAction()
            ->_title($this->__('List Action'));
        // my stuff


Le code de l’extension est disponible sur GitHub : A vous de jouer maintenant ! ;)

    Might be good to point out that users will need to create the data helper class based on the translate arguments

      For Example:
      your Extension is in location: Mjx/Shipping
      Mjx is your Namespace and Shipping is your extension name
      and you have Controller : TestController.php in location Mjx/Shipping/controller/Adminhtml/
      and this controller will have method
      public function listAction() { die(‘test’) }

      So your main tab hould have



      … <– In this param you create link The value is adminhtml(always)/shipping(this is the name of router you defined in section)/list(this is action from controller)

      I hope this helped you
