#15338 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Use global $current_screen within the List Tables classes

Reported by: westi Owned by: scribu
Milestone: 3.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.1
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch

At the moment WP_List_Table caches a local copy of the screen object rather than using the pre-existing global.

This gives the potential for them to get out of sync.

We should just use the one location for this data.

Either always referencing the global or probably better using get_current_screen() in each function that needs the screen object.

Things to test:

  • the deprecated print_column_headers()
  • PHP4 compatibility: get_current_screen()->id

(In [16235]) Use get_current_screen() in list table classes. Fixes #15338

Thank You!

Do we still need to pass $screen as an argument to the base class in deprecated.php?

comment:5 scribu3 years ago

Yes, because with register_column_headers() and print_column_headers() the screen can be different than the current screen.

See the WP E-Commerce plugin as an example.

Possibly worth a comment as to why in the code then :-)
