Process::install() method

Per the Module interface, Install the module

By default a permission equal to the name of the class is installed, unless overridden with the 'permission' property in your module information array.

See the Module interface and the install method there for more details.

Usage

$process->install();

Hooking Process::install()

You can add your own hook events that are executed either before or after the Process::install() method is executed. Examples of both are included below. A good place for hook code such as this is in your /site/ready.php file.

Hooking before

The 'before' hooks are called immediately before each Process::install() method call is executed. This type of hook is especially useful for modifying arguments before they are sent to the method.

$this->addHookBefore('Process::install', function(HookEvent $event) {
  // Get the object the event occurred on, if needed
  $Process = $event->object;

  /* Your code here, perhaps modifying arguments */

  // Populate back arguments (if you have modified them)
});

Hooking after

The 'after' hooks are called immediately after each Process::install() method call is executed. This type of hook is especially useful for modifying the value that was returned by the method call.

$this->addHookAfter('Process::install', function(HookEvent $event) {
  // Get the object the event occurred on, if needed
  $Process = $event->object;

  // An 'after' hook can retrieve and/or modify the return value
  $return = $event->return;

  /* Your code here, perhaps modifying the return value */

  // Populate back return value, if you have modified it
  $event->return = $return;
});
