Extending Form validation Constructor Error - El Forum - 11-15-2008

Hi Peeps.

Have any of you come accross this yet.

I can extend Form_validation no problem at all but as soon as I add a constructor it breaks. There are no errors but you do not get your error messages from the function.

IE
Code:
class MY_Form_validation extends CI_Form_validation {

  function MY_Form_validation()
  {
    parent::CI_Form_validation();
  }
}

Removal of the constructor it then works. ?

Any ideas.

The config array associated with the class is automatically passed to the constructor. Since your rules are probably stored in the config file, you need to account for that array:
Code:
class MY_Form_validation extends CI_Form_validation {

    function MY_Form_validation($config = array())
    {
        parent::CI_Form_validation($config);
    }
}
