I am using a custom function. In a button click i want to display view page. Here i want to render my view programatically in html format. How can i do that?

This is my jquery code:

$('.view-all-content').click(function () {

  $.post("/callajax", {
    'action': 'get_data_from_view',

  }, function (data) {


    // if (data == "gg") {
    //    console.log("suc")
    // }




In my function.php

function get_data_from_view() {

  $view = \Drupal::service('renderer')->render(views_embed_view('article_list', 'page_5'));

  // Other code ...

  echo $view;

Try this

\Drupal::service('renderer')->render(views_embed_view('VIEWSID', 'DISPLAYID'));

  • I just tested this code myself and don't need a namespace for it. The falling this is probably something else in your code ... please post your code at least the relevant part.

You try install module Twig Tweak render block view twig

{{ drupal_view('who_s_new', 'block_1') }}

render block set arguments

{{ drupal_view('products_by_category', 'block_1', tid) }}

You can see it https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/modules/twig-tweak/twig-tweak-and-views
