1 module.inc module_implements($hook, $sort = FALSE)

Determines which modules are implementing a hook.

Lazy-loaded include files specified with "group" via hook_hook_info() or hook_module_implements_alter() will be automatically included as part of module_implements(*, *, FALSE).

Parameters

string $hook: The name of the hook (e.g. "help" or "menu").

bool $sort: By default, modules are ordered by weight and filename, settings this option to TRUE, module list will be ordered by module name.

Return value

string[]|null An array with the names of the modules which are implementing this hook.
