getActiveRenderPath() directly in view


How can I, from inside the view, get the name of the file being rendered ?

var_dump($this->view->getActiveRenderPath()); returns NULL.

Thank you.


// Controller
 public function indexAction()
        echo $this->view->getViewsDir().$this->dispatcher->getControllerName().'/'.$this->dispatcher->getActionName();

Thank you. But what if I $this->view->pick() another template from the action ? What I'm tried to get is really which file is being rendered regardless of what's the current controller/action.

You can use the beforeRenderView event to retrieve the path of the view that's being rendered. Inside that same event handler you can then pass the path as a view variable:


$eventsManager->attach('view:beforeRenderView', function ($event, $view, $path) {
    $view->setVar('activeRenderPath', $path);

And inside your view: {{ activeRenderPath }}

And here's an example on how to use the event manager: https://docs.phalcon.io/en/latest/reference/views.html#view-events

Great ! Works perfectly, thank you.
