CDateValidator verifies if the attribute represents a date, time or datetime.

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.

format property
public mixed $format;

the format pattern that the date value should follow. This can be either a string or an array representing multiple formats. Defaults to 'MM/dd/yyyy'. Please see CDateTimeParser for details about how to specify a date format.

timestampAttribute property
public string $timestampAttribute;

the name of the attribute to receive the parsing result. When this property is not null and the validation is successful, the named attribute will receive the parsing result.
