Adding the new hook to prestashop and attaching it to admin page


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to create a module for admin panel -> Store Contacts.

The idea is to add just one input csv file field.


I created a hook ActionAdminStoresControllersCsvUpload , and connected it with Store Contacts page by overriding this controller: AdminStoresController adding only this function:


 public function initContent() {


The next step is creating a module: uploadStoresViaCsv. The Problem Starts Here. For the beginning I want to display only text at Store Contacts page.


In the module php file i added this function:


 public function hookActionAdminStoresControllersCsvUpload() {
            $helpme="Test if we are connected";
           $this->smarty->assign('helpme', $helpme);
return $this->display(__FILE__, 'upload_stores.tpl');
and create in root tpl file with this code
<div class="col-lg-4">
and NOTHING is happening. :( I don't know why. Wen i do var_dump of $helpme in php I see the content. But when I send the value regularly, i get nothing.
I think that the problem is in new hook. 
What do you think?

I change that. I created the hook hookDisplayCsvUpload. 

If I add this in function hookDisplayCsvUpload


             public function hookDisplayCsvUpload($params) {
                   $this->smarty->assign('helper', "test me");
                   var_dump($this->display(__FILE__, 'views/upload_csv_form_admin.tpl'));
                  return $this->display(__FILE__, 'views/upload_csv_form_admin.tpl');
The result will be the form from tpl. file :
string '<div class="form-group">
    <label class="control-label col-lg-3">
        <span class="label-tooltip" data-toggle="tooltip" data-html="true" title="" data-original-title="You can upload a maximum of 3 images.">
    <div class="col-lg-4">
        test me
' (length=287)
BUT the MAIN problem is that I dont see that content om my admin page Store Contacts.
Any idea?
