Add custom block on listing page : Magento2

I want to add my custom block on listing page[Magento-2] but without any modification on list.phtml or any .phtml file. Is there any possibility by using xml file ?


You can do that if you create new module to override this block: vendor\magento\module-catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct.php

to override this block, you need to create di.xml at app\code\Vendor\Module_Name\etc

di.xml content:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <preference for="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct" type="Vendor\Module_Name\Block\Product\ListProduct" />

Create new file name ListProduct.php at app\code\Vendor\Module_Name\Block\Product

ListProduct.php content:

namespace Vendor\Module_Name\Block\Product;
class ListProduct extends \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct
    public function getProductDetailsHtml(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product)
        $html = $this->getLayout()->createBlock('Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template')->setProduct($product)->setTemplate('Vendor_ModuleName::test.phtml')->toHtml();
        $renderer = $this->getDetailsRenderer($product->getTypeId());
        if ($renderer) {
            return $html.$renderer->toHtml();
        return '';

You can change block Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template to your block

create test.phtml file at app\code\Vendor\Module_Name\view\frontend\templates
