I would like to redirect the user to a view with some contextual filters on the submit of a custom form.

For now I use this :

$form_state->setRedirect('view.search.page_1', ['myvalue' => $value]);

But it add "myvalue" like this : /search?myvalue=$value

and what I want is : /search/$value

You have to use the route parameter names defined in the route.

You can check the route definition of this view display with help of the Devel module by visiting:


When you define contextual filters the route parameter names are usually {arg_0}, {arg_1} ...

So this could work:

$form_state->setRedirect('view.search.page_1', ['arg_0' => $value]);

I guess it is not directly possible, you could however solve it with a small workaround:

$uri = \Drupal\Core\Url::fromUri('base:/your-views-path/' . $value, ['absolute' => TRUE]);

Edit: @4k4 has the better solution.
