Callback when someone changes a Group Name

Peter Lane Posted in Component Development 12 months ago

I am creating a component that uses a group name. Is it possible to create a callback that provides group details on the change of name, like the Group Added callback?

Since there's no callback trigger available inside of the changeOwner() method
you may implement it inside of the change_owner action when the changeOwner() method returns with success.
That is:
1. If not already in place create a subdirectory named actions inside of your component
2. copy the original change_owner.php into this subdirectory
3. edit that duplicate and add your ossn_trigger_callback('plgroupextra', 'chgowner', array(of vars you need))
4. unregister the original action
5. register your replacement action
6. register the callback ossn_register_callback('plgroupextra', 'chgowner', 'your_chgowner_handler')

Is it possible to have a callback when the Group Owner is changed?

it is possible to create (=register) any kind of callback.
But of course a callback needs to be triggered somewhere. ;)
Thus, browse the class file of OssnGroups and you will see which callback triggers are available.
