I am migrating my plugin to Craft 3 / Commerce 2.

What is the best way to call another plugins method like craft()->commerce_orders->getOrderByNumber($number) from my plugins service?


All of Craft’s core services are available via the Craft::$app->getServiceName()->callServiceMethod() signature.

For example, the Elements service would be Craft::$app->getElements()->saveElement()

In the case of other plugins, most will make their Singleton “instance” available as a property on (or method of) their primary plugin class:

use craft/commerce/Plugin as Commerce;
// Maybe a class declaration, and inside your own method…
  • Ok, the 'as Commerce' did the trick, thank you! – phaetons Jan 9 '19 at 8:51
