M2 Gift card is not compatible with M2.2.9

Created by Jane D, Modified on Wed, 8 Jan, 2020 at 5:12 PM by Jane D


When I setup:di:compile, I got the error below:

 PHP Fatal error: Declaration of Bss\GiftCard\Block\Adminhtml\Items\Column\Name\GiftCard::truncateString($value, $length = 80, $etc = '...', &$remainder = '', $breakWords = true) must be compatible with Magento\Sales\Block\Adminhtml\Items\Column\Name::truncateString(string $value, int $length = 80, string $etc = '...', string &$remainder = '', bool $breakWords = true): string in /var/www/html/grandstores/app/code/Bss/GiftCard/Block/Adminhtml/Items/Column/Name/GiftCard.php on line 112

Please tell me how to fix it?


The issue reported above due to the module M2 Gift Card is not compatible with M2.2.9.

To fix this issue, please edit the file app/code/Bss/GiftCard/Block/Adminhtml/Items/Column/Name/GiftCard.php as below:

Line 97, 98,99,100,101, 102:



    $length = 80,

    $etc = '...', 

    &$remainder = '',

    $breakWords = true

 ) {


    string $value,

    int $length = 80,

    string $etc = '...',

    string &$remainder = '',

    bool $breakWords = true

    ): string {
