One question about the validation error message - El Forum - 10-14-2009

[eluser]luffy[/eluser]
The code below:

$this->form_validation->set_rules('username', 'username', 'required');

$this->form_validation->set_rules('content', 'content', 'required');

$this->form_validation->set_message('required', 'custom message');

For example:
If I want to show the "username error" and "content error"
How to use the set_message?
Because their rule is the same.

Edit: but rather than hack the validation library I would extend it with MY_Form_validation

To do that you need to modify Form_validation class

Why doesn't the development team add the code into the validation library ?
