Deprecation: #84327 - Deprecated public methods and properties in Wizard/EditController

See forge#84327


This file is about third party usage (consumer that call the class as well as signals or hooks depending on it) of TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Controller\Wizard\EditController.

A series of class properties has been set to protected. They will throw deprecation warnings if called public from outside:

  • [not scanned] $P

  • $doClose

The following method will be refactored/set to protected in v10 and should no longer be used:

  • [not scanned] main()


Calling one of the above methods or accessing one of the above properties on an instance of Wizard/EditController will throw a deprecation warning in v9 and a PHP fatal in v10.

Affected Installations

The extension scanner will detect only detect usage of $doClose, other calls are not scanned to prevent false positives.


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.
