Override Catalyst's prepare
Catalyst::Plugin::FormValidator - Data::FormValidator plugin for Catalyst.
use Catalyst 'FormValidator'; $c->form( optional => ['rest'] ); print $c->form->valid('rest');
Note that not only is this plugin disrecommended (as it takes over the global
$c->form method, rather than being applyable in only part of your application), but Data::FormValidator itself is not recommended for use.
This plugin uses Data::FormValidator to validate and set up form data from your request parameters. It's a quite thin wrapper around that module, so most of the relevant information can be found there.
Merge values with FormValidator.
$c->form( required => ['yada'] );
Returns a Data::FormValidator::Results object.
The actual parameters sent to $c->form are the same as the profile in Data::FormValidator's check function.
