Determines whether the given user can perform actions on an entity.

For create operations, the pattern is to create an entity and then check if the user has create access.

$node = entity_create('node', array('type' => 'page'));
$access = entity_access('create', 'node', $node, $account);


$op: The operation being performed. One of 'view', 'update', 'create' or 'delete'.

$entity_type: The entity type of the entity to check for.

$entity: Optionally an entity to check access for. If no entity is given, it will be determined whether access is allowed for all entities of the given type.

$account: The user to check for. Leave it to NULL to check for the global user.

Return value

boolean Whether access is allowed or not. If the entity type does not specify any access information, NULL is returned.
