I want to display webform title in a webform.html.twig but I did not find anything in variables array regarding the title of the webform

function THEMENAME_preprocess_webform($variables){
  $title = "?";

How do I get webform title in a preprocess function ? Any suggestions or other approach ?

1 Answer 1


Here is what I came up with

function THEMENAME_preprocess_webform(&$vars){
  $wfid = $vars["element"]["#webform_id"];
  $wf = \Drupal\webform\Entity\Webform::load($wfid);
  $vars["title"] = $wf->label();

Then in your theme's webform.html.twig you can use {{title}}

  • That is the best solution.

  • Thanks coming from you I take it its true ... wouldn't it make sense for webform to include it in the variables array for preprocessors to consume ?

  • The webform.twig.html template just renders the form does not really need to include the {{ title }}. cgit.drupalcode.org/webform/tree/templates/webform.html.twig

  • It doesn't need it, but if you dump(_context|keys) you'll see that it does have all the other makings necessary to have a working {{title}} field including {{ title_attributes }} as well as the less related misnomer {{ title_prefix }} and {{ title_suffix }}, so there is no reason not to pass the variable to the template, even if not used by default. I want to file this as a TX bug. Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 20:10
