CTypeValidator

Package system.validators
Inheritance class CTypeValidator » CValidator » CComponent
Since 1.0
Source Code framework/validators/CTypeValidator.php
CTypeValidator verifies if the attribute is of the type specified by type.

The following data types are supported:
  • integer A 32-bit signed integer data type.
  • float A double-precision floating point number data type.
  • string A string data type.
  • array An array value.
  • date A date data type.
  • time A time data type.
  • datetime A date and time data type.


For date type, the property dateFormat will be used to determine how to parse the date string. If the given date value doesn't follow the format, the attribute is considered as invalid.

Starting from version 1.1.7, we have a dedicated date validator CDateValidator. Please consider using this validator to validate a date-typed value.

When using the message property to define a custom error message, the message may contain additional placeholders that will be replaced with the actual content. In addition to the "{attribute}" placeholder, recognized by all validators (see CValidator), CTypeValidator allows for the following placeholders to be specified:
  • {type}: replaced with data type the attribute should be type.

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.

dateFormat property
public string $dateFormat;

the format pattern that the date value should follow. Defaults to 'MM/dd/yyyy'. Please see CDateTimeParser for details about how to specify a date format. This property is effective only when type is 'date'.

datetimeFormat property
public string $datetimeFormat;

the format pattern that the datetime value should follow. Defaults to 'MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm'. Please see CDateTimeParser for details about how to specify a datetime format. This property is effective only when type is 'datetime'.

strict property (available since v1.1.13)
public boolean $strict;

whether the actual PHP type of attribute value should be checked. Defaults to false, meaning that correctly formatted strings are accepted for integer and float validators.

timeFormat property
public string $timeFormat;

the format pattern that the time value should follow. Defaults to 'hh:mm'. Please see CDateTimeParser for details about how to specify a time format. This property is effective only when type is 'time'.

type property
public string $type;

the data type that the attribute should be. Defaults to 'string'. Valid values include 'string', 'integer', 'float', 'array', 'date', 'time' and 'datetime'.

Method Details

validateAttribute() method
protected void validateAttribute(CModel $object, string $attribute)
$object CModel the object being validated
$attribute string the attribute being validated
Source Code: framework/validators/CTypeValidator.php#90 (show)
protected function validateAttribute($object,$attribute)
{
    
$value=$object->$attribute;
    if(
$this->allowEmpty && $this->isEmpty($value))
        return;

    if(!
$this->validateValue($value))
    {
        
$message=$this->message!==null?$this->message Yii::t('yii','{attribute} must be {type}.');
        
$this->addError($object,$attribute,$message,array('{type}'=>$this->type));
    }
}

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

validateValue() method (available since v1.1.13)
public boolean validateValue(mixed $value)
$value mixed the value to be validated
{return} boolean whether the value is valid
Source Code: framework/validators/CTypeValidator.php#111 (show)
public function validateValue($value)
{
    
$type=$this->type==='float' 'double' $this->type;
    if(
$type===gettype($value))
        return 
true;
    elseif(
$this->strict || is_array($value) || is_object($value) || is_resource($value) || is_bool($value))
        return 
false;

    if(
$type==='integer')
        return (boolean)
preg_match('/^[-+]?[0-9]+$/',trim($value));
    elseif(
$type==='double')
        return (boolean)
preg_match('/^[-+]?([0-9]*\.)?[0-9]+([eE][-+]?[0-9]+)?$/',trim($value));
    elseif(
$type==='date')
        return 
CDateTimeParser::parse($value,$this->dateFormat,array('month'=>1,'day'=>1,'hour'=>0,'minute'=>0,'second'=>0))!==false;
    elseif(
$type==='time')
        return 
CDateTimeParser::parse($value,$this->timeFormat)!==false;
    elseif(
$type==='datetime')
        return 
CDateTimeParser::parse($value,$this->datetimeFormat, array('month'=>1,'day'=>1,'hour'=>0,'minute'=>0,'second'=>0))!==false;

    return 
false;
}

Validates a static value. Note that this method does not respect allowEmpty property. This method is provided so that you can call it directly without going through the model validation rule mechanism.

Type Validator as date.

This is how work a Date Type:

array('vigencia_desde', 'type', 'type'=>'date', 'dateFormat'=>'d/M/yyyy'),

In my case date format is Latin, day / month / year. Regards
