Using Hooks

The names of the hooks are:

  • sendForm
  • sendMail
  • showOutputRedirect

To use one of these hooks in your extension, define the following in your extensions “ext_tables.php” file:

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXTCONF']['datamints_feuser'][###HOOKNAME###][] = 'EXT:' . $_EXTKEY . '/lib/class.tx_feuserhook_example .php:tx_feuserhook_example->main';

Replace “###HOOKNAME###” with the hook name you want to use.

After that create a class with the name defined in the hook definition.

class tx_feuserhook_example {
    function main($params, $pObj) {
        // What ever you want to do here...

You always have these two method parameters (example!):

$params = array (
    // These Variables can not be changed!
    'variables' => array(
        'arrUpdate' => $arrUpdate
    // These Parameters can be used to manipulate the process after the Hook!
    'parameters' => array(
        'mode' => &$mode,
        'submode' => &$submode,
        'params' => &$params

$pObj->feUsersTca;        // The modified Frontend user TCA.
$pObj->storagePid;        // The determined storage page ID.
$pObj->contentUid;        // The TYPO3 content element ID.
$pObj->conf;              // The extensions TypoScript configuration.
$pObj->extConf;           // The global extension configuration.
$pObj->userId;            // The current user ID.
$pObj->arrUsedFields;     // The fields which are displayed.
$pObj->arrRequiredFields; // The field which are required.
$pObj->arrUniqueFields;   // The field which are unique.
$pObj->arrHiddenParams;   // The hidden params array.
