I have a custom module that retrieves a view.

I would like to set a page variable that sums up a bunch of fields as im iterating through them.

So how to i access the $variables variable if it isnt an argument of my function?


Call your function from inside your module's preprocess_page() hook. Eg, in your custom module, let's say your function that calls your view is mymodule_call_view(). Let's further assume it returns the value you want to set your page variable to. You could do it this way:

mymodule_preprocess_page(&$variables) {

  // any other preprocessing you are doing goes here



Then, when drupal is building the page, it would call your preprocess function, which would call your function that iterates through the view, etc...
