do_action( 'admin_init' )

Fires as an admin screen or script is being initialized.

Description Description

Note, this does not just run on user-facing admin screens. It runs on admin-ajax.php and admin-post.php as well.

This is roughly analogous to the more general ‘init’ hook, which fires earlier.

    function the_dramatist_fire_on_admin_screen_initialization() {
        // Do stuff. Say we will echo "Hello World".
        echo 'Hello World';
    add_action( 'admin_init', 'the_dramatist_fire_on_admin_screen_initialization' );

    The above piece of code will only echo “Hello World” if the user is in admin screen.
