NAME ^

Egg::Plugin::FormValidator::Simple - Validator for Egg with FormValidator::Simple

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Catalyst qw/ FormValidator::Simple FillInForm /;
  
  __PACKAGE__->egg_startup(
  
  plugin_validator => {
    plugins => ['CreditCard', 'Japanese'],
    options => { charset => 'euc'},
    },
  
  );

  $e->form(
    param1 => [qw/NOT_BLANK ASCII/, [qw/LENGTH 4 10/]],
    param2 => [qw/NOT_BLANK/, [qw/JLENGTH 4 10/]],
    mail1  => [qw/NOT_BLANK EMAIL_LOOSE/],
    mail2  => [qw/NOT_BLANK EMAIL_LOOSE/],
    { mail => [qw/mail1 mail2/] } => ['DUPLICATION'],
    );
  
  print $e->form->valid('param1');
  
  if ( some condition... ) {
     $e->form( other_param => [qw/NOT_INT/] );
  }
  
  if ( some condition... ) {
     # set your original invalid type.
     $e->set_invalid_form( param3 => 'MY_ERROR' );
  }
  
  if ( $e->form->has_error ) {
  
     if ( $e->form->missing('param1') ) {
        ...
     }
  
     if ( $e->form->invalid( param1 => 'ASCII' ) ) {
        ...
     }
  
     if ( $e->form->invalid( param3 => 'MY_ERROR' ) ) {
        ...
     }
  
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

This plugin allows you to validate request parameters with FormValidator::Simple. See FormValidator::Simple for more information.

This behaves like as Catalyst::Plugin::FormValidator.

METHODS

form

set_invalid_form

CONFIGURATION ^

set config with 'plugin_validator' key.

  __PACKAGE__->egg_startup( plugin_validator => { ... } );

or MyApp::config.pm is edited.

PLUGINS

If you want to use some plugins for FormValidator::Simple, you can set like following.

  plugin_validator => {
    plugins => [qw/Japanese CreditCard DBIC::Unique/],
    },

In this example, FormValidator::Simple::Plugin::Japanese, FormValidator::Simple::Plugin::CreditCard, and FormValidator::Simple::Plugin::DBIC::Unique are loaded.

OPTIONS

When you set some options needed by specific validations, do like this.

  plugin_validator => {
     plugins => [qw/Japanese CreditCard DBIC::Unique/],
     options => {
        charset => 'euc',
        },
     },

VALIDATION ^

use 'form' method, see FormValidator::Simple in detail.

  # execute validation.
  $e->form(
     name  => [qw/NOT_BLANK ASCII/,       [qw/LENGTH 0 20/] ],
     email => [qw/NOT_BLANK EMAIL_LOOSE/, [qw/LENGTH 0 20/] ],
     { unique => [qw/name email/] } => [qw/DBIC_UNIQUE User name email/],
    );
  
  if ( ... ) {
  
     # execute validation one more time in specific condition.
     $e->form( ... );
  
  }
  
  # check result.
  # you can pick up result-object with 'form' method
  
  my $result = $e->form;
  
  if ( $result->has_error ) {
  
    # this is same as
    # if ( $result->has_missing or $result->has_invalid )
  
    $e->detach('add');
  
  }

HANDLING SUCCESSFUL RESULT ^

After it passes all validations, you may wanna put input-data into database. It's a elegant way to use [ Class::DBI and Class::DBI::FromForm ] or [ DBIx::Class and DBIx::Class::WebForm ].

  $c->form(
     name  => [qw/NOT_BLANK/],
     email => [qw/NOT_BLANK/],
    );
  
  my $result = $c->form;
  if ( $result->has_error ) {
     ... error.
  }
  
  my $user = MyProj::Model::DBIC::User->create_from_form($result);
  
  # this behaves like this...
  # MyProj::Model::DBIC::User->create({
  #    name  => $result->valid('name'),
  #    email => $result->valid('email'),
  # });
  #
  # if the key exists as the table's column, set the value with 'valid'

Here, I explain about 'valid' method. If the value indicated with key-name passes validations, You can get the data with 'valid',

  my $result = $c->form(
     name  => [qw/NOT_BLANK/],
     email => [qw/NOT_BLANK/],
    ); 
  
  print $result->valid('name');
  
  print $result->valid('email');

But, this is for only single key validation normally.

  my $result = $c->form(
     name => [qw/NOT_BLANK/], # single key validation
     { mail_dup => [qw/email email2/] } => ['DUPLICATION'] # multiple keys one
    );
  
  print $result->valid('name'); # print out the value of 'name'
  
  print $result->valid('mail_dup'); # no value.

There are exceptions. These are 'DATETIME', 'DATE'.

  my $result = $c->form(
     { created_on => [qw/created_year created_month created_day/] }
     =>
     [qw/DATETIME/],
    );
  
  print $result->valid('created_on'); #print out datetime string like "2005-11-23 00:00:00".

If you set some class around datetime in configuration. It returns object of the class you indicate. You can choose from Time::Piece and DateTime. For example...

   plugin_validator => {
      validator => {
        plugins => [...],
        options => {
           datetime_class => 'Time::Piece',
           },
        },
     );

or

   plugin_validator => {
      validator => {
        plugins => [...],
        options => {
           datetime_class => 'DateTime',
           time_zone      => 'Asia/Tokyo',
           },
        },
     );

then

  my $result = $c->form(
     { created_on => [qw/created_year created_month created_day/] }
     =>
     [qw/DATETIME/],
    );

  my $dt = $result->valid('created_on');
  
  print $dt->ymd;
  
  MyProj::Model::CDBI::User->create_from_form($result);

This may be useful when you define 'has_a' relation for datetime columns. For example, in your table class inherits 'Class::DBI'

  __PACKAGE__->has_a( created_on => 'DateTime',
     inflate => ...,
     deflate => ...,
    );

And see also Class::DBI::Plugin::TimePiece, Class::DBI::Plugin::DateTime.

MESSAGE HANDLING ^

in template file, you can handle it in detail.

    [% IF c.form.has_error %]
    <p>Input Error</p>
    <ul>
    [% IF c.form.missing('name') %]
    <li>input name!</li>
    [% END %]
    [% IF c.form.invalid('name') %]
    <li>name is wrong</li>
    [% END %]
    [% IF c.form.invalid('name', 'ASCII') %]
    <li>input name with ascii code.</li>
    [% END %]
    [% IF c.form.invalid('name', 'LENGTH') %]
    <li>wrong length for name.</li>
    [% END %]
    </ul>
    [% END %]

or, make it more easy.

    [% IF c.form.has_error %]
    <p>Input Error</p>
    <ul>
    [% FOREACH key IN c.form.error %]
        [% FOREACH type IN c.form.error(key) %]
        <li>Invalid: [% key %] - [% type %]</li>
        [% END %]
    [% END %]
    </li>
    [% END %]

And you can also use messages configuration as hash reference.

  plugin_validator => {
     plugins  => [...],
     messages => {
        user => {
           name => {
              NOT_BLANK => 'Input name!',
              ASCII     => 'Input name with ascii code!',
              },
           email => {
              DEFAULT   => 'email is wrong.!',
              NOT_BLANK => 'input email.!'
              },
           },
        company => {
           name => {
              NOT_BLANK => 'Input name!',
              },
           },
        },
     },

or YAML file. set file name

  plugin_validator => {
     plugins  => [...],
     messages => 'conf/messages.yml',
     },

and prepare yaml file like following,

    DEFAULT:
        name:
            DEFAULT: name is invalid
    user:
        name:
            NOT_BLANK: Input name!
            ASCII: Input name with ascii code!
        email:
            DEFAULT: Email is wrong!
            NOT_BLANK: Input email!
    company:
        name:
            NOT_BLANK: Input name!

the format is...

    Action1_Name:
        Key1_Name:
            Validation1_Name: Message
            Validation2_Name: Message
        Key2_Name:
            Validation1_Name: Message
    Action2_Name:
        Key1_Name:
            ...

After messages configuration, call messages() method from result-object. and set action-name as argument.

    [% IF c.form.has_error %]
    <ul>
        [% FOREACH message IN c.form.messages('user') %]
        <li>[% message %]</li>
        [% END %]
    </ul>
    [% END %]

you can set each message format

    MyApp->config(
        validator => {
            messages => 'messages.yml',  
            message_format => '<p>%s</p>'
        },
    );

    [% IF c.form.has_error %]
        [% c.form.messages('user').join("\n") %]
    [% END %]
