Class yii\validators\CompareValidator

Inheritanceyii\validators\CompareValidator » yii\validators\Validator » yii\base\Component » yii\base\BaseObject
Implementsyii\base\Configurable
Available since version2.0
Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/validators/CompareValidator.php

CompareValidator compares the specified attribute value with another value.

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.

CompareValidator supports different comparison operators, specified via the $operator property.

The default comparison function is based on string values, which means the values are compared byte by byte. When comparing numbers, make sure to set the $type to TYPE_NUMBER to enable numeric comparison.

Property Details

Hide inherited properties

$compareAttribute public property

The name of the attribute to be compared with. When both this property and $compareValue are set, the latter takes precedence. If neither is set, it assumes the comparison is against another attribute whose name is formed by appending '_repeat' to the attribute being validated. For example, if 'password' is being validated, then the attribute to be compared would be 'password_repeat'.

See also $compareValue.

public string $compareAttribute null
$compareValue public property

The constant value to be compared with. When both this property and $compareAttribute are set, this property takes precedence.

See also $compareAttribute.

public mixed $compareValue null
$message public property

The user-defined error message. It may contain the following placeholders which will be replaced accordingly by the validator:

  • {attribute}: the label of the attribute being validated
  • {value}: the value of the attribute being validated
  • {compareValue}: the value or the attribute label to be compared with
  • {compareAttribute}: the label of the attribute to be compared with
  • {compareValueOrAttribute}: the value or the attribute label to be compared with
public string $message null
$operator public property

The operator for comparison. The following operators are supported:

  • ==: check if two values are equal. The comparison is done is non-strict mode.
  • ===: check if two values are equal. The comparison is done is strict mode.
  • !=: check if two values are NOT equal. The comparison is done is non-strict mode.
  • !==: check if two values are NOT equal. The comparison is done is strict mode.
  • >: check if value being validated is greater than the value being compared with.
  • >=: check if value being validated is greater than or equal to the value being compared with.
  • <: check if value being validated is less than the value being compared with.
  • <=: check if value being validated is less than or equal to the value being compared with.

When you want to compare numbers, make sure to also set $type to number.

public string $operator '=='
$type public property

The type of the values being compared. The follow types are supported:

  • string: the values are being compared as strings. No conversion will be done before comparison.
  • number: the values are being compared as numbers. String values will be converted into numbers before comparison.
public string $type self::TYPE_STRING

Method Details

__call() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::__call()

Calls the named method which is not a class method.

This method will check if any attached behavior has the named method and will execute it if available.

Do not call this method directly as it is a PHP magic method that will be implicitly called when an unknown method is being invoked.

public mixed __call ( $name, $params )
$name string

The method name

$params array

Method parameters

return mixed

The method return value

throws yii\base\UnknownMethodException

when calling unknown method

                public function __call($name, $params)
{
    $this->ensureBehaviors();
    foreach ($this->_behaviors as $object) {
        if ($object->hasMethod($name)) {
            return call_user_func_array([$object, $name], $params);
        }
    }
    throw new UnknownMethodException('Calling unknown method: ' . get_class($this) . "::$name()");
}

            
__clone() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::__clone()

This method is called after the object is created by cloning an existing one.

It removes all behaviors because they are attached to the old object.

public void __clone ( )

                public function __clone()
{
    $this->_events = [];
    $this->_eventWildcards = [];
    $this->_behaviors = null;
}

            
__construct() public method

Defined in: yii\base\BaseObject::__construct()

Constructor.

The default implementation does two things:

  • Initializes the object with the given configuration $config.
  • Call init().

If this method is overridden in a child class, it is recommended that

  • the last parameter of the constructor is a configuration array, like $config here.
  • call the parent implementation at the end of the constructor.
public void __construct ( $config = [] )
$config array

Name-value pairs that will be used to initialize the object properties

                public function __construct($config = [])
{
    if (!empty($config)) {
        Yii::configure($this, $config);
    }
    $this->init();
}

            
__get() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::__get()

Returns the value of a component property.

This method will check in the following order and act accordingly:

  • a property defined by a getter: return the getter result
  • a property of a behavior: return the behavior property value

Do not call this method directly as it is a PHP magic method that will be implicitly called when executing $value = $component->property;.

See also __set().

public mixed __get ( $name )
$name string

The property name

return mixed

The property value or the value of a behavior's property

throws yii\base\UnknownPropertyException

if the property is not defined

throws yii\base\InvalidCallException

if the property is write-only.

                public function __get($name)
{
    $getter = 'get' . $name;
    if (method_exists($this, $getter)) {
        // read property, e.g. getName()
        return $this->$getter();
    }
    // behavior property
    $this->ensureBehaviors();
    foreach ($this->_behaviors as $behavior) {
        if ($behavior->canGetProperty($name)) {
            return $behavior->$name;
        }
    }
    if (method_exists($this, 'set' . $name)) {
        throw new InvalidCallException('Getting write-only property: ' . get_class($this) . '::' . $name);
    }
    throw new UnknownPropertyException('Getting unknown property: ' . get_class($this) . '::' . $name);
}

            
__isset() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::__isset()

Checks if a property is set, i.e. defined and not null.

This method will check in the following order and act accordingly:

  • a property defined by a setter: return whether the property is set
  • a property of a behavior: return whether the property is set
  • return false for non existing properties

Do not call this method directly as it is a PHP magic method that will be implicitly called when executing isset($component->property).

See also https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.isset.php.

public boolean __isset ( $name )
$name string

The property name or the event name

return boolean

Whether the named property is set

        return $this->$getter() !== null;
    }
    // behavior property
    $this->ensureBehaviors();
    foreach ($this->_behaviors as $behavior) {
        if ($behavior->canGetProperty($name)) {
            return $behavior->$name !== null;
        }
    }
    return false;
}

            
__set() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::__set()

Sets the value of a component property.

This method will check in the following order and act accordingly:

  • a property defined by a setter: set the property value
  • an event in the format of "on xyz": attach the handler to the event "xyz"
  • a behavior in the format of "as xyz": attach the behavior named as "xyz"
  • a property of a behavior: set the behavior property value

Do not call this method directly as it is a PHP magic method that will be implicitly called when executing $component->property = $value;.

See also __get().

public void __set ( $name, $value )
$name string

The property name or the event name

$value mixed

The property value

throws yii\base\UnknownPropertyException

if the property is not defined

{
    $setter = 'set' . $name;
    if (method_exists($this, $setter)) {
        // set property
        $this->$setter($value);
        return;
    } elseif (strncmp($name, 'on ', 3) === 0) {
        // on event: attach event handler
        $this->on(trim(substr($name, 3)), $value);
        return;
    } elseif (strncmp($name, 'as ', 3) === 0) {
        // as behavior: attach behavior
        $name = trim(substr($name, 3));
        $this->attachBehavior($name, $value instanceof Behavior ? $value : Yii::createObject($value));
        return;

    if (method_exists($this, $setter)) {
        $this->$setter(null);
        return;
    }
    // behavior property

            $behavior->$name = null;
            return;
        }
    }
    throw new InvalidCallException('Unsetting an unknown or read-only property: ' . get_class($this) . '::' . $name);
}

        }
    }
    $model->addError($attribute, $this->formatMessage($message, $params));
}

            
attachBehavior() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::attachBehavior()

Attaches a behavior to this component.

This method will create the behavior object based on the given configuration. After that, the behavior object will be attached to this component by calling the yii\base\Behavior::attach() method.

See also detachBehavior().

public yii\base\Behavior attachBehavior ( $name, $behavior )
$name string

The name of the behavior.

$behavior string|array|yii\base\Behavior

The behavior configuration. This can be one of the following:

return yii\base\Behavior

The behavior object

                public function attachBehavior($name, $behavior)
{
    $this->ensureBehaviors();
    return $this->attachBehaviorInternal($name, $behavior);
}

            
attachBehaviors() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::attachBehaviors()

Attaches a list of behaviors to the component.

Each behavior is indexed by its name and should be a yii\base\Behavior object, a string specifying the behavior class, or an configuration array for creating the behavior.

See also attachBehavior().

public void attachBehaviors ( $behaviors )
$behaviors array

List of behaviors to be attached to the component

                public function attachBehaviors($behaviors)
{
    $this->ensureBehaviors();
    foreach ($behaviors as $name => $behavior) {
        $this->attachBehaviorInternal($name, $behavior);
    }
}

            
behaviors() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::behaviors()

Returns a list of behaviors that this component should behave as.

Child classes may override this method to specify the behaviors they want to behave as.

The return value of this method should be an array of behavior objects or configurations indexed by behavior names. A behavior configuration can be either a string specifying the behavior class or an array of the following structure:

'behaviorName' => [
    'class' => 'BehaviorClass',
    'property1' => 'value1',
    'property2' => 'value2',
]

Note that a behavior class must extend from yii\base\Behavior. Behaviors can be attached using a name or anonymously. When a name is used as the array key, using this name, the behavior can later be retrieved using getBehavior() or be detached using detachBehavior(). Anonymous behaviors can not be retrieved or detached.

Behaviors declared in this method will be attached to the component automatically (on demand).

public array behaviors ( )
return array

The behavior configurations.

                public function behaviors()
{
    return [];
}

            
canGetProperty() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::canGetProperty()

Returns a value indicating whether a property can be read.

A property can be read if:

  • the class has a getter method associated with the specified name (in this case, property name is case-insensitive);
  • the class has a member variable with the specified name (when $checkVars is true);
  • an attached behavior has a readable property of the given name (when $checkBehaviors is true).

on() public method

Defined in: yii\base\Component::on()

Attaches an event handler to an event.

The event handler must be a valid PHP callback. The following are some examples:

['Page', 'handleClick']           // Page::handleClick()
'handleClick'                     // global function handleClick()

The event handler must be defined with the following signature,

function ($event)

where $event is an yii\base\Event object which includes parameters associated with the event.

Since 2.0.14 you can specify event name as a wildcard pattern:

$component->on('event.group.*', function ($event) {
