7.x-3.x views.api.php hook_views_pre_build(&$view)

This hook is called right before the build process, but after displays are attached and the display performs its pre_execute phase.

Adding output to the view can be accomplished by placing text on $view->attachment_before and $view->attachment_after.


$view: The view object about to be processed.
