1 file.inc file_download_headers($uri)

Retrieves headers for a private file download.

Calls all module implementations of hook_file_download() to retrieve headers for files by the module that originally provided the file. The presence of returned headers indicates the current user has access to the file.

Parameters

$uri: The URI for the file whose headers should be retrieved.

Return value

If access is allowed, headers for the file, suitable for passing to: file_transfer(). If access is not allowed, an empty array will be returned.

Code

function file_download_headers($uri) {
  // Let other modules provide headers and control access to the file.
  // module_invoke_all() uses array_merge_recursive() which merges header
  // values into a new array. To avoid that and allow modules to override
  // headers instead, use array_merge() to merge the returned arrays.
  $headers = array();
