load-(pagenow) action-hookWP 2.1.0

Fires before a particular screen is loaded.

The load-* hook fires in a number of contexts. This hook is for core screens.

The dynamic portion of the hook name, $pagenow, is a global variable referring to the filename of the current screen, such as 'admin.php', 'post-new.php' etc. A complete hook for the latter would be 'load-post-new.php'.

Usage

add_action( 'load-(pagenow)', 'wp_kama_load_pagenow_action' );

/**
 * Function for `load-(pagenow)` action-hook.
 * 
 * @return void
 */
function wp_kama_load_pagenow_action(){

	// action...
}
