Registering to hook only available for module?


Recommended Posts



Writing some custom csv import stuff and i would like to register for "actionCustomerAddBefore" hook from my override controller (NOT MODULE).

Looking at the source of Hook class it looks like only modules have option like that.


Do i really have to create module just to register for this hook?

I fear yes. 


The function to register on hooks depends heavily on the presence of a module, as also the way it is stored in a database (uses id_module) and how the Hook caller searches for the method to call associated with it. 


So there is no easy way to even "hack" a different method in it without writing a module.
