Since 1.0
Version $Id: CCompareValidator.php 1360 2009-08-21 13:41:16Z qiang.xue $
CCompareValidator compares the specified attribute value with another value and validates if they are equal.

The value being compared with can be another attribute value (specified via compareAttribute) or a constant (specified via compareValue. When both are specified, the latter takes precedence. If neither is specified, the attribute will be compared with another attribute whose name is by appending "_repeat" to the source attribute name.

The comparison can be either strict or not.

Starting from version 1.0.8, CCompareValidator supports different comparison operators. Previously, it only compares to see if two values are equal or not.

Property Details

allowEmpty property
public boolean $allowEmpty;

whether the attribute value can be null or empty. Defaults to true, meaning that if the attribute is empty, it is considered valid.

compareAttribute property
public string $compareAttribute;

the name of the attribute to be compared with

compareValue property
public string $compareValue;

the constant value to be compared with

operator property (available since v1.0.8)
public string $operator;

the operator for comparison. Defaults to '='. The followings are valid operators:

  • '=' or '==': validates to see if the two values are equal. If strict is true, the comparison will be done in strict mode (i.e. checking value type as well).
  • '!=': validates to see if the two values are NOT equal. If strict is true, the comparison will be done in strict mode (i.e. checking value type as well).
  • '>': validates to see if the value being validated is greater than the value being compared with.
  • '>=': validates to see if the value being validated is greater than or equal to the value being compared with.
  • '<': validates to see if the value being validated is less than the value being compared with.
  • '<=': validates to see if the value being validated is less than or equal to the value being compared with.

strict property
public boolean $strict;

whether the comparison is strict (both value and type must be the same.) Defaults to false.

Method Details

validateAttribute() method
protected void validateAttribute(CModel $object, string $attribute)
$object CModel the object being validated
$attribute string the attribute being validated

Validates the attribute of the object. If there is any error, the error message is added to the object.
