ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent

New in version 11.4

Changed in version 12.0

Due to the integration of EXT:recordlist into EXT:backend the namespace of the event changed from \TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\Event\ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent to \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\RecordList\Event\ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent. For TYPO3 v12 the moved class is available as an alias under the old namespace to allow extensions to be compatible with TYPO3 v11 and v12.

The PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\RecordList\Event\ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent allows to modify the multi record selection actions (for example edit, copy to clipboard) for a table in the record list.

Usage

An example registration of the events in your extension's Services.yaml:

EXT:my_extension/Configuration/Services.yaml
services:
  # Place here the default dependency injection configuration

  MyVendor\MyExtension\Backend\EventListener\MyEventListener:
    tags:
      - name: event.listener
        identifier: 'my-extension/recordlist/my-event-listener'
        method: 'modifyRecordActions'
      - name: event.listener
        identifier: 'my-extension/recordlist/my-event-listener'
        method: 'modifyHeaderColumns'
      - name: event.listener
        identifier: 'my-extension/recordlist/my-event-listener'
        method: 'modifyTableActions'

API

class ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent
Fully qualified name
\TYPO3\CMS\Backend\RecordList\Event\ModifyRecordListTableActionsEvent

An event to modify the multi record selection actions (e.g.

"edit", "copy to clipboard") for a table in the RecordList.

setAction ( string $action, string $actionName = '', string $before = '', string $after = '')

Add a new action or override an existing one. Latter is only possible, in case $actionName is given. Otherwise, the action will be added with a numeric index, which is generally not recommended. It's also possible to define the position of an action with either the "before" or "after" argument, while their value must be an existing action.

param $action

the action

param $actionName

the actionName, default: ''

param $before

the before, default: ''

param $after

the after, default: ''

hasAction ( string $actionName)

Whether the action exists

param $actionName

the actionName

Returns
bool
getAction ( string $actionName)

Get action by its name

param $actionName

the actionName

Returns
string|null The action or NULL if the action does not exist
removeAction ( string $actionName)

Remove action by its name

param $actionName

the actionName

Returns
bool Whether the action could be removed - Will therefore return FALSE if the action to remove does not exist.
setActions ( array $actions)
param $actions

the actions

getActions ( )
Returns
array
setNoActionLabel ( string $noActionLabel)
param $noActionLabel

the noActionLabel

getNoActionLabel ( )

Get the label, which will be displayed, in case no action is available for the current user. Note: If this returns an empty string, this only means that no other listener set a label before. TYPO3 will always fall back to a default if this remains empty.

Returns

getTable ( )
Returns
string
getRecordIds ( )
Returns

getRecordList ( )

Returns the current DatabaseRecordList instance.
