Hook to modify the creation of product

Go to solution Solved by renaud2263,

Hi All,


Actually when I create a new product with my PS 1.6.1, I need the reference is the same of the ID (which I don't know at this stage due to the auto-increment. )


So what should be the best way to do that ?

Overriding AdminProductController ? The class ? I saw the function add and the hook actionProductSave called.

But where is this hook ?


Or maybe I have to create a module with this kind of hook  :

public function hookActionProductSave()
    $id = Tools::getValue('id_product');
    $product = new Product($id);
    $product->reference = ($id;


Could you give me some indications ? Thanks !

During product creation you have the time to grab the product ID from the browser url and put it in the reference field.

If you add the product title, description, price etc hit save & stay. Grab the id from the browser url and paste it.


Of course you can automated by using hooks or overrides.
