function hook_user_view

7.x user.api.php hook_user_view($account, $view_mode, $langcode)

The user's account information is being displayed.

The module should format its custom additions for display and add them to the $account->content array.

Note that when this hook is invoked, the changes have not yet been written to the database, because a database transaction is still in progress. The transaction is not finalized until the save operation is entirely completed and user_save() goes out of scope. You should not rely on data in the database at this time as it is not updated yet. You should also note that any write/update database queries executed from this hook are also not committed immediately. Check user_save() and db_transaction() for more info.


$account: The user object on which the operation is being performed.

$view_mode: View mode, e.g. 'full'.

$langcode: The language code used for rendering.
