How can I test if a page is being accessed from the administrative area?

function canView() {
      if( IF_YOU_ARE_IN_THE_ADMINISTRATIVE_AREA ) {
         return true;
      } else {
         return false;
      }
}

Thanks to Martijn and simon_w for helping with this in the forums.

Controller::curr() can be used to test the object type.

And SSViewer::current_theme() can be used to for a theme.

For example,

function canView() {
      if(SSViewer::current_theme()===null) {
         return true;
      }
      else {
         return false;
      }
}
