Deprecation: #95105 - DatabaseRecordList hooks

See Issue #95105

Description

The TYPO3 hook $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['typo3/class.db_list_extra.inc']['actions'] which is used in the DatabaseRecordList class for modifying the behavior of each table listing, has been marked as deprecated.

Using this hook always required to implement the \TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\RecordList\RecordListHookInterface, which then required the corresponding hook class to implement four different hook methods, even if only one of them was needed.

Furthermore are those methods no longer sufficient since e.g. the “controls” and “clip” sections were merged together already. Therefore, also the accompanied PHP interface TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\RecordList\RecordListHookInterface has been marked as deprecated.

Impact

If the hook is registered in a TYPO3 installation, a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error is triggered. The extension scanner also detects any usage of the deprecated interface as strong, and the definition of the hook as weak match.

Affected Installations

TYPO3 installations with custom extensions using this hook.

Migration

Migrate to the corresponding RecordList PSR-14 events:

  • \TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\Event\ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent
  • \TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\Event\ModifyRecordListHeaderColumnsEvent
  • \TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\Event\ModifyRecordListRecordActionsEvent
