Deprecation: #84321 - Protected methods and properties in AddController¶
This file is about third party usage (consumer that call the class as well as
signals or hooks depending on it) of
A series of class properties has been set to protected. They will throw deprecation warnings if called public from outside:
All methods not used as entry points by
TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Http\RouteDispatcher will be
removed or set to protected in v10 and throw deprecation warnings if used from a third party:
Due to refactoring the
init() method does not perform a redirect anymore in case no
was set by GET params. This redirect has been moved and will be performed for legacy code by the
main() method now.
$GLOBALS['SOBE'] is not set by the
AddController constructor anymore.
Calling one of the above methods or accessing one of the above properties on an instance of
AddController will throw a deprecation warning in v9 and a PHP fatal in v10.
The extension scanner will find most usages, but may also find some false positives. The most
common property and method names like
$content are not registered and will not be found
if an extension uses that on an instance of
AddController. In general all extensions
that set properties or call methods except
mainAction() are affected.
In general, extensions should not instantiate and re-use controllers of the core. Existing usages should be rewritten to be free of calls like these.
