Model Validation function not working

I have this model

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model,
    Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\PresenceOf;

class Posts extends Model{

    public $id;

    public $title;

    public $content;

    public $createDate;

    public $lastEditDate;

    public $status;

    public $slug;

    public $author_id;

    public function initialize(){

        $this->belongsTo('author_id', '\App\Models\Users', 'id', array(
            'alias' => 'author'
        ));

        $this->hasMany('id', '\App\Models\PostsComments', 'post_id', array(
            'alias' => 'comments'
        ));

    }

    public function validation(){

        //title
        $this->validate(new PresenceOf(array(
            'field' =>  'title',
            'message' => 'Un article doit avoir un titre.'
        )));

        $this->validate(new Model\Validator\StringLength(array(
            'field' => 'title',
            'min' => 3,
            'max' => 255,
            'messageMinimum' => "Le titre de l'article est trés cour, il faut au moins 3 caractéres.",
            'messageMaximum' => "Le titre de l'article est trés long, pas plus que 255."
        )));

        //content
        $this->validate(new Model\Validator\PresenceOf(array(
            'field' => 'content',
            'message' => 'Un article sans contenu ?!.',
        )));

        return !$this->validationHasFailed();

    }

}

The Validation function looks ok but when I try to add a post with wrong information, the errors messages still the default Phalcon messages, and whene I add a title with 2 chars length (lower than the min of StringLength), no error detected...

Hi @sn0opr,

and if you try this:

<?php

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model,
    Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator;

class Posts extends Model{

    public $id;

    public $title;

    public $content;

    public $createDate;

    public $lastEditDate;

    public $status;

    public $slug;

    public $author_id;

    public function initialize(){

    $this->belongsTo('author_id', '\App\Models\Users', 'id', array(
    'alias' => 'author'
    ));

    $this->hasMany('id', '\App\Models\PostsComments', 'post_id', array(
    'alias' => 'comments'
    ));

    }

    public function validation()
    {

        //title
        $this->validate(new Validator\PresenceOf(array(
        'field' =>  'title',
        'message' => 'Un article doit avoir un titre.'
        )));

        $this->validate(new Validator\StringLength(array(
        'field' => 'title',
        'min' => 3,
        'max' => 255,
        'messageMinimum' => "Le titre de l'article est trés cour, il faut au moins 3 caractéres.",
        'messageMaximum' => "Le titre de l'article est trés long, pas plus que 255."
        )));

        //content
        $this->validate(new Validator\PresenceOf(array(
        'field' => 'content',
        'message' => 'Un article sans contenu ?!.',
        )));

        return !$this->validationHasFailed();
    }

}

When I used an explicit function like use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\PresenceOf; and later on i tried to use:

    $this->validate(new Model\Validator\Uniqueness([
            'field' => 'email',
            'message' => 'Your email is already in use'
        ]));

in my code, I almost always ended up with errors.

Hi @screenas Thank you for trying to help, but it still not working :(

Could you post some code of your controller? I wrote a sample App with your Model and the Validation worked.

You need to swiitch off the default Phalcon's notNullValidators. Check below post out. And the posts it links to as well.
