Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/validators/FilterValidator.php

FilterValidator converts the attribute value according to a filter.

FilterValidator is actually not a validator but a data processor. It invokes the specified filter callback to process the attribute value and save the processed value back to the attribute. The filter must be a valid PHP callback with the following signature:

function foo($value) {
    // compute $newValue here
    return $newValue;
}

Many PHP functions qualify this signature (e.g. trim()).

To specify the filter, set $filter property to be the callback.

Property Details

$filter public property

The filter. This can be a global function name, anonymous function, etc. The function signature must be as follows,

function foo($value) {
    // compute $newValue here
    return $newValue;
}
public callable $filter null
$skipOnArray public property

Whether the filter should be skipped if an array input is given. If true and an array input is given, the filter will not be applied.

public boolean $skipOnArray false
$skipOnEmpty public property

This property is overwritten to be false so that this validator will be applied when the value being validated is empty.

public boolean $skipOnEmpty false

Method Details

clientValidateAttribute() public method

Returns the JavaScript needed for performing client-side validation.

Calls getClientOptions() to generate options array for client-side validation.

You may override this method to return the JavaScript validation code if the validator can support client-side validation.

The following JavaScript variables are predefined and can be used in the validation code:

  • attribute: an object describing the the attribute being validated.
  • value: the value being validated.
  • messages: an array used to hold the validation error messages for the attribute.
  • deferred: an array used to hold deferred objects for asynchronous validation
  • $form: a jQuery object containing the form element

The attribute object contains the following properties:

  • id: a unique ID identifying the attribute (e.g. "loginform-username") in the form
  • name: attribute name or expression (e.g. "[0]content" for tabular input)
  • container: the jQuery selector of the container of the input field
  • input: the jQuery selector of the input field under the context of the form
  • error: the jQuery selector of the error tag under the context of the container
  • status: status of the input field, 0: empty, not entered before, 1: validated, 2: pending validation, 3: validating
public string clientValidateAttribute ( $model, $attribute, $view )
$model yii\base\Model

The data model being validated

$attribute string

The name of the attribute to be validated.

$view yii\web\View

The view object that is going to be used to render views or view files containing a model form with this validator applied.

return string

The client-side validation script. Null if the validator does not support client-side validation.

getClientOptions() public method

Returns the client-side validation options.

This method is usually called from clientValidateAttribute(). You may override this method to modify options that will be passed to the client-side validation.

public array getClientOptions ( $model, $attribute )
$model yii\base\Model

The model being validated

$attribute string

The attribute name being validated

return array

The client-side validation options

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.
