If you want to control content from another page you can use the <% control Page(url-of-your-page %>.... $Title ... <% end_control %> which will control over the page object with the given URL. If control Page() doesn't work then you will have to write a PHP function to render the template inside the page (see documentation about renderWith()). Also you can only use <% include %> to get templates from the includes folder (not from layout folder).

Thanks for reply me but for me is a bit complicated..can you help me to set code?

This is my ArticlePage.php

class ArticlePage extends Page {

public static $db = array();
public static $has_one = array();

class ArticlePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

public function init() {
Requirements::themedCSS("form"); }

function templatePhp() {

return $_return_article;}

$doSet = new DataObjectSet();

$result = array(
'data' => $_return_hitlist, );
$doSet->push(new ArrayData($result));
return $doSet;

classe.php file set articlePhp(); function.
To show my $_return_article variable in template a write $data but i see nothing but var_dump($doSet) is

"How can I show my $_return_article variable in template?"

ArticlePage extends Page so templatePhp() does not exist per se in
- You can call templatePhp() with $templatePhp in if you want to.
- Or use <% control Page(url-of-your-page) %>$templatePhp<% end_control %> or <% if ClassName = ArticlePage %>$templatePhp<% end_if %> in
- Or create a wrapper method in Page.php for ArticlePage.php (or move templatePhp() to Page.php of course)
