has_action() WP 1.0

Check if any action has been registered for a hook.

When using the $function_to_check argument, this function may return a non-boolean value that evaluates to false (e.g. 0), so use the === operator for testing the return value.

Works based on: has_filter()
1 time — 0.000016 sec (very fast) | 50000 times — 0.03 sec (speed of light)

No Hooks.


true|false|Int. If $function_to_check is omitted, returns boolean for whether the hook has anything registered. When checking a specific function, the priority of that hook is returned, or false if the function is not attached.
