Defined in:

Overview

All validators extend this base class. Validators must:

  • Implement the initialize method to capture its parameters, also calling super to have this parent class capture the optional, general :if and :unless parameters.

  • Implement the call method, returning true or false. The call method provides the validation logic.

#initialize(field, opts = {}) ⇒ GenericValidator

Construct a validator. Capture the :if and :unless clauses when present.

All additional key/value pairs are passed through to the validator that is sub-classing this GenericValidator

Parameters:

  • field (String, Symbol)

    The property specified for validation

  • :if<Symbol, (Hash)

    a customizable set of options

  • :unless<Symbol, (Hash)

    a customizable set of options

#add_error(target, message, field_name = :general) ⇒ Object

Add an error message to a target resource. If the error corresponds to a specific field of the resource, add it to that field, otherwise add it as a :general message.

TODO - should the field_name for a general message be :default???

Parameters:

  • target (Object)

    the resource that has the error

  • message (String)

    the message to add

  • field_name (Symbol) (defaults to: :general)

    the name of the field that caused the error

def add_error(target, message, field_name = :general)
  target.errors.add(field_name,message)
end

#call(target) ⇒ Boolean

Call the validator. “call” is used so the operation is BoundMethod and Block compatible. This must be implemented in all concrete classes.

Parameters:

  • target (Object)

    the resource that the validator must be called against

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    true if valid, otherwise false

def call(target)
  raise "DataMapper::Validate::GenericValidator::call must be overriden in #{self.class.to_s}"
end

#execute?(target) ⇒ Boolean

Determines if this validator should be run against the target by evaluating the :if and :unless clauses optionally passed while specifying any validator.

Parameters:

  • target (Object)

    the resource that we check against

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    true if should be run, otherwise false
