Magento Certified Developer GuideCategory: 3.2 BlocksIs it possible to render a template without a block in Magento?
Manish Prakash Staff asked 5 years ago

The main function responsible for rending a block is “_toHtml()” function. If we define our own “_toHtml()” it would be possible to include a template file and render the template same way a fetchView() function does it. So i guess it is possible, but not the ideal way.
