I'm trying to add a screen option to the dashboard screen.

I have a function like:

my_function() {



Now, I need to know the correct action hook $hook to use hooking in my function when the dashboard screen is loaded:

add_action( "load-$hook", 'my_function' );

What should $hook be?

  • Depends on the page you want to address. Show the code for that. – fuxia Dec 2 '12 at 22:56
  • that would be the main dashboard screen. – mikkelbreum Dec 7 '12 at 12:31
add_action( 'load-index.php', 'the_function', 1, 0 );

The load-{page_hook} hook works with the filename of the page to load.
