To get the category name in Magento 2, you can use the following steps:

  1. In your Magento 2 store, go to the Admin Panel.
  2. In the Admin Panel, navigate to Products > Categories.
  3. On the Categories page, you will see a list of all the categories in your store. You can either select a specific category from this list, or you can use the search functionality to find a specific category.
  4. Once you have found the category you want to view, click on its name to open the Category Details page.
  5. On the Category Details page, you will see the name of the category displayed at the top of the page. This is the category name that you are looking for.


Alternatively, you can also use the following code snippet to get the category name in Magento 2:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
<?php

$objectManager = MagentoFrameworkAppObjectManager::getInstance();

$category = $objectManager->create('MagentoCatalogModelCategory')->load($categoryId);

$categoryName = $category->getName();

?>


In this code snippet, $categoryId is the ID of the category that you want to get the name for. You can use this code snippet in your custom module or block class to get the category name.


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

To get the category name in Magento 2, you can use the Category model and repository. Here is an example code:

  1. Inject the necessary dependencies in your class constructor:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
use MagentoCatalogApiCategoryRepositoryInterface;
use MagentoCatalogModelCategoryFactory;

protected $categoryFactory;
protected $categoryRepository;

public function __construct(
    CategoryFactory $categoryFactory,
    CategoryRepositoryInterface $categoryRepository
) {
    $this->categoryFactory = $categoryFactory;
    $this->categoryRepository = $categoryRepository;
}


  1. Use the category Factory and Repository to load the category by ID and get its name:
1
2
3
$category = $this->categoryFactory->create();
$category = $this->categoryRepository->get($categoryId);
$categoryName = $category->getName();


Replace $categoryId with the actual category ID from where you want to retrieve the name. The $categoryName variable will contain the name of the category.
