Re: [TYPO3-dev] Hooks with interface



Hi Steffen,

you could create a second interface, which is extended by the old one.

So you just have to check in the code, if the interface is an instanceOf 
  second interface.

e.g.

interface MyHook {
   some functions...
}

interface MyBetterHook extends MyHook {
   additional functions...
}

class MyClass {

   1. load functions with instanceOf MyHook... (there is a PHP-function 
for getting the classes, without reflection)
   2. run MyHook things
      and
      run MyBetterHook things, checking the instanceOf MyBetterHook before.
}

Cheers,

Malte
