How to add layout variables from a module

You can add your own layout variables which may be used in you custom template. To demonstrate this feature we assume you already have added you custom layout to a theme (see How to add a layout in a theme from a module). Here is an example of a layout using a customMessage variable.

Layout

{# modules/my_email_theme_module/mails/layout/customizable_modern_layout.html.twig #}
{% extends '@MailThemes/modern/components/layout.html.twig' %}

{% block content %}
  <table width="100%">
    <tr>
      <td align="center" class="titleblock">
        <font size="2" face="{{ languageDefaultFont }}Open-sans, sans-serif" color="#555454">
          <span class="title">{{ 'This is an example mail template from my module for modern theme'|trans({}, 'EmailsBody', locale)|raw }}</span>
        </font>
      </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td align="center" class="titleblock">
        <font size="2" face="{{ languageDefaultFont }}Open-sans, sans-serif" color="#555454">
          <span class="subtitle">{{ customMessage }}</span>
        </font>
      </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td class="space_footer">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
  </table>
{% endblock %}

Using the hook

Now you need to add your variables for this specific layout, in order to do so you will use the actionBuildMailLayoutVariables hook.

<?php
use PrestaShop\PrestaShop\Core\MailTemplate\Layout\LayoutVariablesBuilderInterface;
use PrestaShop\PrestaShop\Core\MailTemplate\Layout\LayoutInterface;

class my_email_theme_module {
    public function install() {
        return parent::install()
            // This class constant contains 'actionBuildMailLayoutVariables'
            && $this->registerHook(LayoutVariablesBuilderInterface::BUILD_MAIL_LAYOUT_VARIABLES_HOOK)
        ;
    }
    
    public function uninstall() {
        return parent::uninstall()
            && $this->unregisterHook(LayoutVariablesBuilderInterface::BUILD_MAIL_LAYOUT_VARIABLES_HOOK)
        ;        
    }
    
    public function enable() {
        return parent::enable()
            && $this->registerHook(LayoutVariablesBuilderInterface::BUILD_MAIL_LAYOUT_VARIABLES_HOOK)
        ;
    }
    
    public function disable() {
        return parent::disable()
            && $this->unregisterHook(LayoutVariablesBuilderInterface::BUILD_MAIL_LAYOUT_VARIABLES_HOOK)
        ;        
    }
    
    /**
     * @param array $hookParams
     */
    public function hookActionBuildMailLayoutVariables(array $hookParams)
    {
        if (!isset($hookParams['mailLayout'])) {
            return;
        }

        /** @var LayoutInterface $mailLayout */
        $mailLayout = $hookParams['mailLayout'];
        if ($mailLayout->getModuleName() != $this->name || $mailLayout->getName() != 'customizable_modern_layout') {
            return;
        }

        $hookParams['mailLayoutVariables']['customMessage'] = 'My custom message';
    }
}

You can then go to the “Design > Email Theme” page and preview your layout you will see that your message has been inserted in your template.
