Class yii\validators\EachValidator

Inheritanceyii\validators\EachValidator » yii\validators\Validator » yii\base\Component » yii\base\Object
Implementsyii\base\Configurable
Available since version2.0.4
Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/validators/EachValidator.php

EachValidator validates an array by checking each of its elements against an embedded validation rule.

class MyModel extends Model
{
    public $categoryIDs = [];

    public function rules()
    {
        return [
            // checks if every category ID is an integer
            ['categoryIDs', 'each', 'rule' => ['integer']],
        ]
    }
}

Note: This validator will not work with inline validation rules in case of usage outside the model scope, e.g. via validate() method.

Note: EachValidator is meant to be used only in basic cases, you should consider usage of tabular input, using several models for the more complex case.

Property Details

$allowMessageFromRule public property

Whether to use error message composed by validator declared via $rule if its validation fails. If enabled, error message specified for this validator itself will appear only if attribute value is not an array. If disabled, own error message value will be used always.

$rule public property

Definition of the validation rule, which should be used on array values. It should be specified in the same format as at yii\base\Model::rules(), except it should not contain attribute list as the first element. For example:

['integer']
['match', 'pattern' => '/[a-z]/is']

Please refer to yii\base\Model::rules() for more details.

$stopOnFirstError public property (available since version 2.0.11)

Whether to stop validation once first error among attribute value elements is detected. When enabled validation will produce single error message on attribute, when disabled - multiple error messages mya appear: one per each invalid value. Note that this option will affect only validateAttribute() value, while validateValue() will not be affected.

public boolean $stopOnFirstError true

Method Details

init() public method

Initializes the object.

This method is invoked at the end of the constructor after the object is initialized with the given configuration.

public void init ( )
validateAttribute() public method

Validates a single attribute.

Child classes must implement this method to provide the actual validation logic.

public void validateAttribute ( $model, $attribute )
$model yii\base\Model

The data model to be validated

$attribute string

The name of the attribute to be validated.

validateValue() protected method

Validates a value.

A validator class can implement this method to support data validation out of the context of a data model.

protected array|null validateValue ( $value )
$value mixed

The data value to be validated.

return array|null

The error message and the parameters to be inserted into the error message. Null should be returned if the data is valid.

throws yii\base\NotSupportedException

if the validator does not supporting data validation without a model
