Example

Such a plugin will display in the "Error log" which controller is running:

<?php
$eventName = $modx->event->name;
switch($eventName) {
    case 'OnManagerPageBeforeRender':
        // which controller is loading
        print_r($scriptProperties['controller']->config);
        print_r($scriptProperties['controller']->scriptProperties);
        break;
}

Such a plugin will display "Access Denied" to users who have resource id in the parameter in the system settings allow_to_update:

<?php
$eventName = $modx->event->name;
switch($eventName) {
    case 'OnManagerPageBeforeRender':
        switch($scriptProperties['controller']->config['controller']){
            //Checking the rights to edit documents
            case 'resource/update':
                // Check for the presence of the allow_to_update setting (set in the user settings)
                // In it we list which documents the user can edit
                // If the setting is specified, but the document id is not in the listed allowed,
                // Then return an access error
                if($allow_to_update = $modx->getOption('allow_to_update')){
                    if(!is_array($allow_to_update)){
                        $allow_to_update = explode(",", $allow_to_update);
                        $allow_to_update = array_map('trim', $allow_to_update);
                    }
                    if(in_array($scriptProperties['controller']->scriptProperties['id'], $allow_to_update)){
                        $scriptProperties['controller']->failure('Access is denied');
                        return;
                    }
                }
                break;
        }
        break;
}

Such a plugin will connect the js we need to the admin pages:

<?php
$eventName = $modx->event->name;
switch($eventName) {
    case 'OnManagerPageBeforeRender':
        $modx->controller->addJavascript('url/file.js');
        break;
}
