ModifyLinkHandlersEvent

New in version 12.0

This event has been introduced together with ModifyAllowedItemsEvent to serve as a direct replacement for the following removed hook $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['LinkBrowser']['hooks']. It replaces the method modifyLinkHandlers() in this hook.

The PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Controller\Event\ModifyLinkHandlersEvent is triggered before link handlers are executed, allowing listeners to modify the set of handlers that will be used.

Example

EXT:my_extension/Classes/Backend/EventListener/MyEventListener.php
<?php

declare(strict_types=1);

namespace MyVendor\MyExtension\Backend\EventListener;

use TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Controller\Event\ModifyLinkHandlersEvent;
use TYPO3\CMS\Core\Attribute\AsEventListener;

#[AsEventListener(
    identifier: 'my-extension/backend/link-handlers',
)]
final readonly class MyEventListener
{
    public function __invoke(ModifyLinkHandlersEvent $event): void
    {
        $handler = $event->getLinkHandler('url.');
        $handler['label'] = 'My custom label';
        $event->setLinkHandler('url.', $handler);
    }
}
Copied!

New in version 13.0

The PHP attribute \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Attribute\AsEventListener has been introduced to tag a PHP class as an event listener. Alternatively, or if you need to be compatible with older TYPO3 versions, you can also register an event listener via the Configuration/Services.yaml file. Switch to an older version of this page for an example or have a look at the section Implementing an event listener in your extension.
