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.

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.

API

class 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.

Parameters
  • $action (string) -- the action

  • $actionName (string) -- the actionName, default: ''

  • $before (string) -- the before, default: ''

  • $after (string) -- the after, default: ''

hasAction(string $actionName)

Whether the action exists

Parameters
  • $actionName (string) -- the actionName

Return type

bool

getAction(string $actionName)

Get action by its name

Parameters
  • $actionName (string) -- the actionName

Return type

string

Returns

removeAction(string $actionName)

Parameters
  • $actionName (string) -- the actionName

Return type

bool Whether the action could be removed - Will therefore

return FALSE if the action to remove does not exist.

setActions(array $actions)
Parameters
  • $actions (array) -- the actions

getActions()

setNoActionLabel(string $noActionLabel)
Parameters

getNoActionLabel()
