#validates(&block) ⇒ Object

Defines validations by converting a longhand block into a series of shorthand definitions. For example:

class MyClass < Sequel::Model
  validates do
    length_of :name, :minimum => 6
    length_of :password, :minimum => 8
  end
end

is equivalent to:

class MyClass < Sequel::Model
  validates_length_of :name, :minimum => 6
  validates_length_of :password, :minimum => 8
end

end

#validates_acceptance_of(*atts) ⇒ Object

Validates acceptance of an attribute. Just checks that the value is equal to the :accept option. This method is unique in that :allow_nil is assumed to be true instead of false.

Possible Options:

:accept

The value required for the object to be valid (default: '1')

:message

The message to use (default: 'is not accepted')

  atts << opts
  validates_each(*atts) do |o, a, v|
    o.errors.add(a, opts[:message]) unless v == opts[:accept]
  end
end

#validates_confirmation_of(*atts) ⇒ Object

Validates confirmation of an attribute. Checks that the object has a _confirmation value matching the current value. For example:

validates_confirmation_of :blah

Just makes sure that object.blah = object.blah_confirmation. Often used for passwords or email addresses on web forms.

Possible Options:

:message

The message to use (default: 'is not confirmed')

  atts << opts
  validates_each(*atts) do |o, a, v|
    o.errors.add(a, opts[:message]) unless v == o.get_column_value(:"#{a}_confirmation")
  end
end

#validates_each(*atts, &block) ⇒ Object

Adds a validation for each of the given attributes using the supplied block. The block must accept three arguments: instance, attribute and value, e.g.:

validates_each :name, :password do |object, attribute, value|
  object.errors.add(attribute, 'is not nice') unless value.nice?
end

Possible Options:

:allow_blank

Whether to skip the validation if the value is blank.

:allow_missing

Whether to skip the validation if the attribute isn't a key in the values hash. This is different from allow_nil, because Sequel only sends the attributes in the values when doing an insert or update. If the attribute is not present, Sequel doesn't specify it, so the database will use the table's default value. This is different from having an attribute in values with a value of nil, which Sequel will send as NULL. If your database table has a non NULL default, this may be a good option to use. You don't want to use allow_nil, because if the attribute is in values but has a value nil, Sequel will attempt to insert a NULL value into the database, instead of using the database's default.

:allow_nil

Whether to skip the validation if the value is nil.

:if

A symbol (indicating an instance_method) or proc (which is instance_evaled) skipping this validation if it returns nil or false.

:tag

The tag to use for this validation.

#validates_length_of(*atts) ⇒ Object

Validates the length of an attribute.

Possible Options:

:is

The exact size required for the value to be valid (no default)

:maximum

The maximum size allowed for the value (no default)

:nil_message

The message to use use if :maximum option is used and the value is nil (default: 'is not present')

The message to use use if it the value is too long (default: 'is too long')

:too_short

The message to use use if it the value is too short (default: 'is too short')

#validates_schema_type(*atts) ⇒ Object

Validates whether an attribute has the correct ruby type for the associated database type. This is generally useful in conjunction with raise_on_typecast_failure = false, to handle typecasting errors at validation time instead of at setter time.

Possible Options:

:message

The message to use (default: 'is not a valid (integer|datetime|etc.)')

      o.errors.add(a, message)
    end
  end
end

#validates_uniqueness_of(*atts) ⇒ Object

Validates only if the fields in the model (specified by atts) are unique in the database. Pass an array of fields instead of multiple fields to specify that the combination of fields must be unique, instead of that each field should have a unique value.

This means that the code:

validates_uniqueness_of([:column1, :column2])

validates the grouping of column1 and column2 while

validates_uniqueness_of(:column1, :column2)

validates them separately.

You should also add a unique index in the database, as this suffers from a fairly obvious race condition.

Possible Options:

:message

The message to use (default: 'is already taken')
