Deprecation: #77296 - Deprecate public member parentMenuArr in AbstractMenuContentObject

See Issue #77296


The previously undefined member parentMenuArr has been added as public member and marked as deprecated.


The parentMenuArr will be publicly accessible until it is changed to protected in TYPO3 v9.

Affected Installations

Instances that have menus with sublevels and using this member in the itemArrayProcFunc.


Use the provided API function getParentMenuArr() to get the parentMenuArr instead. This method always returns an array.

If you need the direct parent menuitem of the current sublevel use getParentMenuItem() method.
