PageContentPreviewRenderingEvent

New in version 12.0: This event has been introduced which serves as a drop-in replacement for the removed $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['cms/layout/class.tx_cms_layout.php']['tt_content_drawItem'] hook.

Use the PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\View\Event\PageContentPreviewRenderingEvent to ship an alternative rendering for a specific content type or to manipulate the record data of a content element.

Example

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

declare(strict_types=1);

namespace MyVendor\MyExtension\Backend\EventListener;

use TYPO3\CMS\Backend\View\Event\PageContentPreviewRenderingEvent;
use TYPO3\CMS\Core\Attribute\AsEventListener;

#[AsEventListener(
    identifier: 'my-extension/preview-rendering-example-ctype',
)]
final class MyEventListener
{
    public function __invoke(PageContentPreviewRenderingEvent $event): void
    {
        if ($event->getTable() !== 'tt_content') {
            return;
        }

        if ($event->getRecord()['CType'] === 'example_ctype') {
            $event->setPreviewContent('<div>...</div>');
        }
    }
}

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.
