function hook_entity_view

Act on entities being assembled before rendering.


$entity: The entity object.

$type: The type of entity being rendered (i.e. node, user, comment).

$view_mode: The view mode the entity is rendered in.

$langcode: The language code used for rendering.

The module may add elements to $entity->content prior to rendering. The structure of $entity->content is a renderable array as expected by drupal_render().
