So, I have this observer which is giving me customer object on
customer_save_after event like this:
$customer = $observer->getEvent()->getCustomer();
On this object I
save like this:
$customerData = $customer->getDataModel();
$customerData->setCustomAttribute(‘myattributename’, $myattributevalue); $customer->updateData($customerData); $customer->save();
As said, this is working fine when I observe
I need this complete logic in a custom event. I’m dispatching my custom event in an
after Plugin like this
public function afterAddCustomer()
[‘customer’ => $this]
The event is triggered but the problem is that either the
$observer->getEvent()->getCustomer(); already is not available or the
getDataModel(); (I’m not exactly sure on that).
getDataModel() should be available in: https://www.magentoextensions.org/documentation/interface_magento_1_1_customer_1_1_api_1_1_data_1_1_attribute_metadata_interface.html
Anyway, I think, I have a basic misunderstanding about dispatching custom events. I think what I’m missing is the option to pass along the data which I need, don’t I?
Could anybody explain the concept behind custom events and also how to fix my problem?
Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks a lot
