Act on entities as they are being prepared for view.

Allows you to operate on multiple entities as they are being prepared for view. Only use this if attaching the data during the entity_load() phase is not appropriate, for example when attaching other 'entity' style objects.


$entities The entities keyed by entity ID.

$type The type of entities being loaded (i.e. node, user, comment).

$langcode The language to display the entity in.
