How to execute own validator in model ??

I have model in models/Posts.php

<?php

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator; use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\PresenceOf; use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\StringLength; use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\Uniqueness; use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\OtherThanActive;

class Posts extends \Phalcon\Mvc\Model {

public function initialize()
{
  $this->belongsTo('id_user', 'Users', 'id');
}


public function validation()
{
  $this->validate(new PresenceOf([
      'field' => 'title',
      'message' => 'Tytuł nie może być pusty'
  ]));

  $this->validate(new StringLength([
      'field' => 'title',
      'min' => 5,
      'max' => 20,
      'message' => 'Długość musi być między 5 a 20 !'
  ]));

  $this->validate(new Uniqueness([
      'field' => 'title',
      'message' => 'Tytuł musi być unikalny. Aktualny tytuł istnieje'
  ]));

  $this->validation(new OtherThanActive([
      'field' => 'title'
  ]));

  return ($this->validationHasFailed() != true);
}

}

And I created validator in /app/validators/PostsValidators.php (I added in config and loader this dir)

Code of validator:

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator; use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\ValidatorInterface; use Phalcon\Validation;

class OtherThanActive extends Validator implements ValidatorInterface {

public function validate(Validation $validator, $attr)
{
  $postId = $this->getOption('postId');
  $field = $this->getOption('field');

  $active = \Posts::findFirst($attr['postId'])->users->active; 
  if($attr['postTitle'] == $active)
  {
      $validator->appendMessage(new Message('Title can not be the same as user active status -- just test. stupid message'));
      return false;
  }

  return true;
}

}

When I want use my walidator in model I have error that OtherThanActive class not found. How in phalcon we can include own validators ???

Thanks

Try to change use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator\OtherThanActive; to use \OtherThanActive; in Posts model.

0) Which version of Phalcon are you using?

1) Rename /app/validators/PostsValidators.php to /app/validators/OtherThanActive.php

2) I think, you created wrong validator OtherThanActive validate function.

<?php

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Message;
use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator;
use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\ValidatorInterface;

class OtherThanActive extends Validator implements ValidatorInterface
{

    /**
     * @param \Phalcon\Mvc\EntityInterface $record
     *
     * @return bool
     */
    public function validate(\Phalcon\Mvc\EntityInterface $record)
    {
       //your validation logic
    }
}

i tried this simple example and it's working in my case

Where did you create validator ? can you give me your path ? Did you have to add some configuration in other files ?

I'm trying use in bootstrap:

$loader->registerNamespaces([
    'MyValidator\Validator' => '../app/validators/' 
]);

but this is probably wrong.. It shoud works immediately... Maybe your instruction give me solution.

Your code returns:

Fatal error: Declaration of PostsOtherThanActive::validate() must be compatible with Phalcon\Mvc\Model\ValidatorInterface::validate(Phalcon\Mvc\ModelInterface $record) in

Thanks

Ok. Let's try again :)

1) Your validator class name must be the same as file name.

2) change PostsOtherThanActive validate function parameter type

<?php

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Message;
use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Validator;
use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\ValidatorInterface;

class PostsOtherThanActive extends Validator implements ValidatorInterface
{

    /**
     * @param \Phalcon\Mvc\EntityInterface $record
     *
     * @return bool
     */
    public function validate(\Phalcon\Mvc\ModelInterface $record)
    {
       //your validation logic
    }
}

3) In bootstrap add:

$loader->registerDirs(array('../app/validators/'));

remove:

$loader->registerNamespaces([
    'MyValidator\Validator' => '../app/validators/' 
]);

I have your version of code but without

public function validate(\Phalcon\Mvc\ModelInterface $record)

My phalcon need to have

public function validate(Validation $validator = null, $attr = null)

Now PHP is blocking when I try execute my validator... Looks like Bug in Phalcon.. ( other controllers works fine )

What version do you have ? Maybe I need change phalcon.DLL (windows 8)

The reaon was Phalcon version. ValidatorInterface is different in 2.0.3 and 2.0.4.

In version 2.0.4 your code works fine.

Thanks a lot.
