I can't get Table class to work in a controller. I try to get the data of a record in a table but I always get

0 Call to a member function load() on bool

Is it possible to use the Table class in a controller? What could be omitting?


namespace Sfi\Component\Aaprueba\Administrator\Table;

defined('_JEXEC') or die;

use \Joomla\CMS\Table\Table;
use \Joomla\Database\DatabaseDriver;

class EspaciosTable extends Table
    public function __construct(DatabaseDriver $db)
        parent::__construct('#__sfi_es_espacios', 'id', $db);


namespace Sfi\Component\Aaprueba\Site\Controller;

\defined('_JEXEC') or die;

use Joomla\CMS\Factory;
use Joomla\CMS\MVC\Controller\FormController;
use Joomla\CMS\Router\Route;
use Joomla\CMS\Table\Table;

class EspaciosController extends FormController
    public function getEspacio()
        Table::addIncludePath(JPATH_ADMINISTRATOR . '/components/com_aaprueba/src/Table');
        $table = Table::getInstance('Espacios', 'Table', array());
        $id = 2;

Use the MVC factory. Joomla\CMS\Table\Table::addIncludePath() call is not needed in J4 style components.

$table = $this->factory->createTable('Espacios', 'Administrator');
  • Thanks!. Out of model or controller like helpers or Ajax controllers, I found @Sharky solution how help me: $table = \Joomla\CMS\Factory::getApplication()->bootComponent('com_foo')->getMVCFactory()->createTable('user', 'Administrator');
