Event to listen to after the form engine has been initialized (and all data has been persisted).

The PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Controller\Event\AfterPageColumnsSelectedForLocalizationEvent will be dispatched after records and columns are collected in the LocalizationController.

The event receives:

  • The default columns and columns list built by LocalizationController
  • The list of records that were analyzed to create the columns manifest
  • The parameters received by the LocalizationController

The event allows changes to:

  • the columns
  • the columns list

This allows third party code to read or manipulate the “columns manifest” that gets displayed in the translation modal when a user has clicked the Translate button in the page module, by implementing a listener for the event.
