Array validation - El Forum - 06-24-2008

[eluser]EEssam[/eluser]
Hello,

I'm using CI validator and I need to validate an array. It looks like this into my view file:

<input type="text" value="order[1]" name="one">
<input type="text" value="order[2]" name="one">
<input type="text" value="order[3]" name="one">

$rules['order'] = "numeric"; is not working. I need to show the error if any field doesn't contain a number.

Please help.

Hi,

Maybe it's a typo, but you should use is_numeric not numeric 'cause it's not a function.

I guess array validation is not supported by CI..I'm not sure

The OP is more-than-likely using the CI Validation rule numeric, not the PHP function.

I thought he tried to use the ability to call one argument PHP functions from validation. My bad Wink

Hi guys,

So the only way is to create a custom callback function I guess.

Numeric should work, but why are you defining $rules['order'] when the input name is 'one'? The key in the rule array and the input's name should match up. So it'd be $rules['one'] (although you might not want 3 text boxes named the same thing?).
