How can i change attached files label?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to change the attached files label on the client side. at the moment i've got this code from the "editing panel" section.


// This hook will adjust the button in the home page panels. You have two
// different options of setExtra() or setExtras(). Use of setExtras() requires
// passing all 'extra' related vars through the array.
use WHMCS\View\Menu\Item;
add_hook('ClientAreaHomepagePanels', 1, function (Item $homePagePanels) {
    $YourFiles = $homePagePanels->getChild('Your Files');
    if (!is_null($YourFiles)) {
                'color' => 'asbestos',

What am i missing? its not changing anything unless i have that button bit included :(

if all you want to do is change the label on the panel, then you have a couple of options...

  1. if it's a default homepage panel (e.g one that you haven't created yourself), then it will (should!) use a Language string for the label - if so, then you can change it using a Language Override.
    $_LANG['clientareafiles'] = "Attached Files by Monster IT";

    bear in mind, that you'll have to add language overrides for every language that you want to change the label for.

  2. you could use a hook to change the label of a panel and hard-code the label to be the same for all users....

    use WHMCS\View\Menu\Item as MenuItem;
    add_hook('ClientAreaHomepagePanels', 1, function(MenuItem $homePagePanels)
    	if(!is_null($homePagePanels->getChild('Your Files'))){
    		$homePagePanels->getChild('Your Files')
    				->setLabel('Attached Files by brian!');

    the hook label changes would take precedence over any language override.

  3. there is a third way in which you could use the above hook to utilise a language string for the label - but in this instance, if you want to do that, you might as well just change the existing language strings with overrides. :)
