    This hook is an action which means that it primarily acts as an event trigger, instead of a content filter. This is a semantic difference, but it will help you to remember what this hook does if you use it like this:

    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'myplugin_setup_options' );
    function myplugin_setup_options(){
      $plugin_page=add_options_page( 'My Plugin', 'myplugin', 8, basename(__FILE__), 'myplugin_main' );
      add_action( 'admin_head-'. $plugin_page, 'myplugin_admin_header' );
    function myplugin_admin_header(){
      echo '<p>Only executes when the myplugin options page is displayed.</p>';
