Magento Certified Developer GuideCategory: 3.1 Design & LayoutHow are layout xml directives processed?
Manish Prakash Staff asked 5 years ago

When we call the “loadLayout()” function in our controller, it in turn calls “generateLayoutBlocks()” function. This function calls “generateBlocks()” function in “Mage_Core_Model_Layout” class which processes the entire layout xml blocks, references etc and create block objects from xml.
