ModifyEditFileFormDataEvent

New in version 12.1

This event can be used as an improved alternative for the removed $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['typo3/file_edit.php']['preOutputProcessingHook'] hook.

The PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Filelist\Event\ModifyEditFileFormDataEvent allows to modify the form data, used to render the file edit form in the File > Filelist module using FormEngine data compiling.

Example

Registration of the event listener in the extension's Services.yaml:

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

  MyVendor\MyExtension\FileList\EventListener\MyEventListener:
    tags:
      - name: event.listener
        identifier: 'my-extension/modify-edit-file-form-data'

namespace MyVendor\MyExtension\FileList\EventListener;

use TYPO3\CMS\Filelist\Event\ModifyEditFileFormDataEvent;

final class MyEventListener
{
    public function __invoke(ModifyEditFileFormDataEvent $event): void
    {
        // Get current form data
        $formData = $event->getFormData();

        // Change TCA "renderType" based on the file extension
        $fileExtension = $event->getFile()->getExtension();
        if ($fileExtension === 'ts') {
            $formData['processedTca']['columns']['data']['config']['renderType'] = 'tsRenderer';
        }

        // Set updated form data
        $event->setFormData($formData);
