I would like to show the user delete confirmation form as a tab in user profile, just near View and Modity. I am trying the following code in a custom module but it is not working, I'm not sure I am calling the right callback and arguments:

function custom_morebuttons_menu_alter(&$items) {
  $items['user/%user/cancel'] = array (
    'title' => 'Cancel profile',
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form', 
    'page arguments' => array('user_cancel_confirm_form', 1), 
    'access callback' => 'user_cancel_access', 
    'access arguments' => array(1), 
    'type' => MENU_LOCAL_TASK,
    'weight' => 10,
  );
}

You need to use hook_menu() instead of hook_menu_alter() because you are adding a new menu item rather than altering an existing one.

function YOUR_MODULE_menu() {
  $items['user/%user/cancel'] = array(
    'title' => 'Cancel profile',
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
    'page arguments' => array('user_cancel_confirm_form', 1),
    'access callback' => 'user_cancel_access',
    'access arguments' => array(1),
    'type' => MENU_LOCAL_TASK,
    'weight' => 10,
    'file' => 'user.pages.inc',
    'file path' => drupal_get_path('module', 'user'),
  );

  return $items;
}

Don't forget to return $items at the end of the function, since it is not passed by reference.

Though I'm not sure if the page callback and arguments are right, I didn't check that, I've just copied from your code.

    I would add that the reason OP needs to use hook_menu() and not hook_menu_alter() is because they are not altering an existing entry, but adding a new menu entry; it just happens to be a subtab for an existing primary task. – Charlie Schliesser Feb 3 '13 at 20:49
  • This gives me this error: Notice: Undefined index: user_cancel_confirm_form in drupal_retrieve_form() (linea 763 di D:\Progetti\Sito\xampp\htdocs\drupal\includes\form.inc). Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function 'user_cancel_confirm_form' not found or invalid function name in drupal_retrieve_form() (linea 798 di D:\Progetti\Sito\xampp\htdocs\drupal\includes\form.inc). – Danilo Brambilla Feb 3 '13 at 21:51

    You need to also specify "file" and "file path" in the menu hook - see my EDIT. – zwirbeltier Feb 5 '13 at 21:05

using hook_menu() and a custom module

function mymodule_menu() {
    $items['user/%user/canceltask'] = array(
    'title' => 'Cancel profile',
      'page callback' => 'mymodule_goto_user_cancel',
      'page arguments' => array(1),
      'access arguments' => array('cancel_account'),
      'access callback' => TRUE,
      'type' => MENU_LOCAL_TASK,
      'weight' => 10,
    );
    return $items;
}

function mymodule_goto_user_cancel($arguments=0) {
    drupal_goto('user/'.(int)$arguments->uid.'/cancel');
}

This solution offers the advantage of not needing to mess around with any forms at all. Its a simple redirect Button.

  • Not the most elegant of the solutions. But I like the simplicity :) – Gokul N K Feb 8 '13 at 7:30

    I dont think it's elegant to mess around in the system. The other solution here might introduce problems with changing dependancies. starting with using $items['user/%user/cancel'] -> what will ensure this hook_menu is called after the other one? unsolved race condition I say.. – Andre Baumeier Feb 8 '13 at 23:49
  • In fact I used $items['user/%user/delete'] as $items['user/%user/cancel'] is already present in the user edit form. – Danilo Brambilla Feb 9 '13 at 12:11
