Hi, 

 

i'm new to prestashop, and i'm facing a problem after trying to display some variables in contact-form.tpl 

 

in fact i tried to print the variable $customerThread from ContactController.php using print_r($customerThread);

 

but it doesn't print anything 

 

then i tried to print $email and it doesn't print anything. this is the code 

 

also when i'm logged in to my website my email is showing correctly in the input although i deleted the block  

$email = Tools::safeOutput(Tools::getValue('from',
		((isset($this->context->cookie) && isset($this->context->cookie->email) && Validate::isEmail($this->context->cookie->email)) ? $this->context->cookie->email : '')));
		$this->context->smarty->assign(array(
			'errors' => $this->errors,
			'email' => $email,
			'fileupload' => Configuration::get('PS_CUSTOMER_SERVICE_FILE_UPLOAD')
		));

from ContactController.php ( init function ) 

 

this is the code where i added the print_r 

public function initContent()
	{
		parent::initContent();

		$this->assignOrderList();
$heyy="hello there";
		$email = Tools::safeOutput(Tools::getValue('from',
		((isset($this->context->cookie) && isset($this->context->cookie->email) && Validate::isEmail($this->context->cookie->email)) ? $this->context->cookie->email : '')));
		$this->context->smarty->assign(array(
			'errors' => $this->errors,
			'email' => $email,
			'fileupload' => Configuration::get('PS_CUSTOMER_SERVICE_FILE_UPLOAD')
		));

        print_r($email);
		if (($id_customer_thread = (int)Tools::getValue('id_customer_thread')) && $token = Tools::getValue('token'))
		{
			$customerThread = Db::getInstance()->getRow('
				SELECT cm.* 
				FROM '._DB_PREFIX_.'customer_thread cm
				WHERE cm.id_customer_thread = '.(int)$id_customer_thread.' 
				AND cm.id_shop = '.(int)$this->context->shop->id.' 
				AND token = \''.pSQL($token).'\'
			');
			$this->context->smarty->assign('customerThread', $customerThread);
		}

i don't know where does the contact-form.tpl get the email value

 

anyone has any idea about this please ?

open the page source (CTRL + U) and you'll find the print_r output

To output variables correctly, add them to the array in this line
$this->context->smarty->assign

And then you can use them in the tpl with same name

Example:
 

$this->context->smarty->assign(array(
	'errors' => $this->errors,
	'email' => $email,
	'fileupload' => Configuration::get('PS_CUSTOMER_SERVICE_FILE_UPLOAD'),
        'abcd' => 'variable content'
));

In the tpl

{$abcd} will show "variable content"
