onModule Created actions?

I was looking around for a place to put actions that would happen when a user creates a module.

Example:

User creates a new blog on page.

After creating the module ( getting the ids ), we go out an reserve the friendly rss urls, and other friendly urls.

 

I have been looking but can't seem to find where/how i should be doing these type of actions?

i know there is a SitePreDeleteHandlerProvider, its there a "SiteModuleCreatedHandlerProvider"?

 

thanks ~

No love?

Is there no way/where to set code to run after a new module has been created?

:(

Re: onModule Created actions?

Sorry but no, I don't like the idea at all.

If you have some things you need to make sure exist in your module you should implement a method in your module to check if it has been done and if not then do it, maybe in page load of your module control.

Module is a generic thing, having some event where every kind of module can plug in and handle the module created event for every other kind of module including its own kind is not a good idea in my opinion. Then we would be calling lots of event handlers for no reason.

Hope that makes sense.

Best,

Joe

Re: onModule Created actions?

ok, after chewing on this more and thinking about the way the delete handlers are implemented I don't think it is such a bad idea since it only fires the event for the configured handler from the feature definition. I'll add a wish list item in the project tracker but I can't promise how soon I will get to it. Sorry about my initial response, its just that I'm working on some really complicated things right now and my mind is full and I don't have room for more things to think about at the moment so its a bad time to ask for things ;-D Once I finish figuring out everything for web farm support I will be back to normal operations but right now I can't think about other ideas much.

Best,

Joe

Thanks Joe,

I understand there are much more important things. Web Farm support sounds like a fun project :)

I also don't think its high on the priority list... it was just one of those "nice to have"
