Load a script just to custom post type in admin

I have created a custom post type “portfolio” with something like this :

$args = array(
    'labels' => $labels,
    'public' => true,
    'publicly_queryable' => true,
    'show_ui' => true,
    'query_var' => true,
    //'menu_icon' => get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/article16.png',
    'rewrite' => true,
    'capability_type' => 'post',
    'hierarchical' => false,
    'menu_position' => 4,
    'taxonomies' => array('post_tag','category'),
    'supports' => array('title','editor','comments','trackbacks','revisions','custom-fields','page-attributes','thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'tags')

register_post_type( 'portfolio' , $args );

And I have some other custom fields in there with an action :

add_action("admin_init", "admin_init");
function admin_init(){ // add_meta_box( $id, $title, $callback, $page, $context, $priority ); 
  add_meta_box("media", "Media Type", "media", "portfolio", "side", "high");
  add_meta_box("map_meta", "Mapping Info", "map_meta", "portfolio", "normal", "high");

Although I once had this working I can not figure out to get it to load scripts just for this page. Right now I just have them in with the rest of the wp_enqueue_script like this :

function my_init() {
    if (!is_admin()) {

 if (is_admin()) {
        wp_register_script('Gmaps', 'http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false', false, '3.0', false);

        wp_register_style('admin_js', get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/admin.js');

        wp_register_script('Zmaps', get_bloginfo('template_directory') .'/scripts/maps.js', array('Gmaps'), '1.0', true);
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_init');

But none of this is loading for me. How can I load these scripts into the admin pages? Better yet how can I load them specifically for the edit pages of the portfolio custom post type?

Try this code for adding scripts to the edit pages of your portfolio custom post type.

add_action( 'admin_print_scripts-post-new.php', 'portfolio_admin_script', 11 );
add_action( 'admin_print_scripts-post.php', 'portfolio_admin_script', 11 );

function portfolio_admin_script() {
    global $post_type;
    if( 'portfolio' == $post_type )
    wp_enqueue_script( 'portfolio-admin-script', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/admin.js' );

I’ll post a better solution because the accepted answer is old and does not use the right hooks.

First of all: To enqueue scripts and styles in admin area, must be used admin_enqueue_scripts and nothing else.

Second: Forget any global vars. Use the current screen object to perform different checks.

Here is a ready copy paste code:

function wpse_cpt_enqueue( $hook_suffix ){
    $cpt = 'portfolio';

    if( in_array($hook_suffix, array('post.php', 'post-new.php') ) ){
        $screen = get_current_screen();

        if( is_object( $screen ) && $cpt == $screen->post_type ){

            // Register, enqueue scripts and styles here


add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'wpse_cpt_enqueue');

Note: Replace 'portfolio' with the needed post type slug.

// Enter custom JS TO ADMIN AREA

add_action( 'admin_print_scripts-post-new.php', 'banner_admin_script', 11 );
add_action( 'admin_print_scripts-post.php', 'banner_admin_script', 11 );

function banner_admin_script() {
    global $post_type;
    if ( $post_type == 'banner' )
        wp_enqueue_script( 'portfolio-admin-script', plugins_url( '/js/admin.js', 
            __FILE__), '', '', true ); // "TRUE" - ADDS JS TO FOOTER

I made some changes in this code to work for me:

  1. I changed get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/admin.js' to plugins_url( '/js/admin.js', __FILE__), – this was needed because I’ve developed a plugin for a banner, which is the better solution instead creating CPT inside functions.php

  2. I’ve added “true” to send the code at the footer area instead of the head – improves time for loading
