Feature: #52217 - Signal for pre processing linkvalidator records

See Issue #52217

Description

This signal allows for additional processing upon initialization of a specific record, e.g. getting content data from plugin configuration in record.

Registering the signal: (in ext_localconf.php)

$signalSlotDispatcher = \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility::makeInstance(\TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\SignalSlot\Dispatcher::class);
$signalSlotDispatcher->connect(
    \TYPO3\CMS\Linkvalidator\LinkAnalyzer::class,
    'beforeAnalyzeRecord',
    \Vendor\Package\Slots\RecordAnalyzerSlot::class,
    'beforeAnalyzeRecord'
);

The slot class:

namespace Vendor\Package\Slots;

use TYPO3\CMS\Linkvalidator\LinkAnalyzer;

class RecordAnalyzerSlot {

    /**
     * Receives a signal before the record is analyzed
     *
     * @param array $results Array of broken links
     * @param array $record Record to analyze
     * @param string $table Table name of the record
     * @param array $fields Array of fields to analyze
     * @param LinkAnalyzer $parentObject Parent object
     * @return array
     */
    public function beforeAnalyzeRecord($results, $record, $table, $fields, LinkAnalyzer $parentObject) {
        // Processing here
        return array(
            $results,
            $record
        );
    }
}

Impact

Extensions may now perform any kind of processing for every record when validating content links.
