.. sidebar:: Registering Event Listeners in the Service Container
When you are using the
:doc:`DependencyInjection component </components/dependency_injection/introduction>`,
you can use the
from the HttpKernel component to tag services as event listeners::
use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerBuilder;
use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Definition;
use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ParameterBag\ParameterBag;
use Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\DependencyInjection\RegisterListenersPass;
$containerBuilder = new ContainerBuilder(new ParameterBag());
$containerBuilder->addCompilerPass(new RegisterListenersPass());
// register the event dispatcher service
// register your event listener service
$listener = new Definition('AcmeListener');
$listener->addTag('kernel.event_listener', array(
'event' => 'foo.action',
'method' => 'onFooAction',
$containerBuilder->setDefinition('listener_service_id', $listener);
// register an event subscriber
$subscriber = new Definition('AcmeSubscriber');
$containerBuilder->setDefinition('subscriber_service_id', $subscriber);
By default, the listeners pass assumes that the event dispatcher's service
id is ``event_dispatcher``, that event listeners are tagged with the
``kernel.event_listener`` tag and that event subscribers are tagged with
the ``kernel.event_subscriber`` tag. You can change these default values
by passing custom values to the constructor of ``RegisterListenersPass``.
