Change View File from Controller in CakePHP 3

You can change what view.ctp file you want to use in your controller with the following line of code.  I place it at the bottom of my function definition.  Useful for having a simple admin interface or a different view template for each language.  This doesn't change the layout of your page, just the view template the controller uses when rendering your content.

  1. $this->viewBuilder()->template('another_view');   // will use another_view.ctp instead of controller_name.ctp

Cheers,
