hook_civicrm_pageRun

Summary

This hook is called before a CiviCRM page is rendered.

Notes

This does not execute on every CiviCRM page in the general sense. CiviCRM's pages are classified as either 'Forms' or 'Pages', and this only runs on pages classified as 'Pages'. If you are not sure if a particular page is a Page, test it by adding some temporary debug code to /CRM/Utils/Hook.php

Definition

hook_civicrm_pageRun( &$page )

Parameters

  • $page the page being rendered

Returns

  • null

Example

The example below is for the enhanced tags extension. In this extension a coordinator can be assigned to a CiviCRM tag. In the pageRun hook below the coordinators are added to an array which is sent to the page template

function enhancedtags_civicrm_pageRun(&$page) {
  $pageName = $page->getVar('_name');
  if ($pageName == 'CRM_Admin_Page_Tag') {
    /*
     * retrieve all tag enhanced data and put in array with tag_id as index
     */
    $enhancedTags = CRM_Enhancedtags_BAO_TagEnhanced::getValues(array());
    $coordinators = array();
    foreach ($enhancedTags as $enhancedTag) {
      $coordinators[$enhancedTag['tag_id']] = CRM_Enhancedtags_BAO_TagEnhanced::getCoordinatorName($enhancedTag['coordinator_id']);
    }
    $page->assign('coordinators', $coordinators);
  }
}
