WP Admin Bar and Ajax Request

I’m trying to get default nodes from the WP Admin Bar through AJAX. I get NULL if I var_dump the variable which should store the Admin bar object.

class my_class
var $Admin_bar;
public function __construct(){
//Other stuff

public function PluginSetup(){
add_action( ‘wp_before_admin_bar_render’, array( $this , ‘admin_bar_load’ ), 1);
add_action( ‘wp_ajax_get_the_page’, array( $this ,’get_the_page’) );

public function admin_bar_load() {
global $wp_admin_bar;

//here I set variable
$this->Admin_bar = $wp_admin_bar->get_nodes();

//If I var_dump($this->Admin_bar) I see the object correctly stored

public function get_the_page() {

//where I request the page rendering
include ‘inc/mypage.php’;
$response = ob_get_contents();


And then in my inc/mypage.php i just:


At this point I get NULL. I’m not sure if my problem is about the variable initialisation or about the actions.
