Plugin Development – Custom Post Type single post type shown in theme single.php

I am creating a plugin where i have created a custom post type smart-event and I want to serve the single posts under this category via a single page.That’s why I have created a single post page named : single-event.php directly into plugin folder -like- event > single-event.php

And I am using this function to load the single page

function myevent($template) {
if (‘event’ == get_post_type(get_queried_object_id()) && !$template) {
$template = dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/single-event.php’;
}
return $template;
}
add_action( ‘single_template’, ‘myevent’));

But the single post is being shown in theme single.php page not in the page i have created.

Below is my CPT register code and i have flush the rewrite mode in permalink settings.

function eventCPT(){
$labels = array(
‘name’ => esc_html__( ‘Events’, ‘event’ ),
‘singular_name’ => esc_html__( ‘Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘menu_name’ => esc_html__( ‘Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘name_admin_bar’ => esc_html__( ‘Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘add_new’ => esc_html__( ‘Add New Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘add_new_item’ => esc_html__( ‘Add New Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘new_item’ => esc_html__( ‘New Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘edit_item’ => esc_html__( ‘Edit Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘view_item’ => esc_html__( ‘View Event’, ‘event’ ),
‘all_items’ => esc_html__( ‘All Events’, ‘event’ ),
‘search_items’ => esc_html__( ‘Search Events’, ‘event’ ),
‘parent_item_colon’ => esc_html__( ‘Parent Events:’, ‘event’ ),
‘not_found’ => esc_html__( ‘No events found.’, ‘event’ ),
‘not_found_in_trash’ => esc_html__( ‘No events found in Trash.’,’event’ )
);

$args = array(
‘labels’ => $labels,
‘description’ => __( ‘Description.’, ‘event’ ),
‘public’ => true,
‘publicly_queryable’ => true,
‘show_ui’ => true,
‘show_in_menu’ => true,
‘query_var’ => true,
‘rewrite’ => array( ‘slug’ => ‘event’ ),
‘capability_type’ => ‘post’,
‘has_archive’ => false,
‘hierarchical’ => false,
‘menu_position’ => null,
‘menu_icon’ => ‘dashicons-calendar-alt’,
‘supports’ => array( ‘title’, ‘author’, ‘thumbnail’, ‘excerpt’, ‘comments’ )
);

register_post_type( ‘event’, $args );
}

add_action( ‘init’, ‘eventCPT’));
