Validation bug - cant esplain just read

[eluser]Phil Sturgeon[/eluser]
Hey, not entirely sure whats going on here. Its the first time I have properly used the validation class on a form that has database entries in it to begin with, and im not having alot of fun.

You can see I have defined 5 fields names, they are the only ones with ruels and therefore I imagine the only ones that need to be named. It seems that when I add information, it will save it fine but the variables for those 5 named in $fields will not be loaded. They are in db, just dont show.

When I comment out set_fields() they show fine.

$rules = array(
'user_firstname'  => 'trim|required',
'user_lastname'  => 'trim|required',
'personal_url'  => 'trim|max_length[100]',
'birthday'   => 'trim',
'location'   => 'trim',
'occupation'  => 'trim|xss_clean',
'interests'   => 'trim|xss_clean',
'aol_im'   => 'trim',
'icq_number'  => 'trim',
'yahoo_im'   => 'trim',
'msn_im'   => 'trim|valid_email',
'gtalk_im'   => 'trim|valid_email',
'about_me'   => 'trim'

$fields = array(
'user_firstname' => $this->lang->line('first_name'),
'user_lastname'  => $this->lang->line('last_name'),
'personal_url'  => $this->lang->line('personal_url'),
'msn_im'   => $this->lang->line('msn_im'),
'gtalk_im'   => $this->lang->line('gtalk_im')


if ($this->validation->run() === FALSE):
   // Just using the rules array to get a list of field names
   foreach(array_keys($rules) as $field):
$this->data[$field] = (isset($this->validation->$field)) ? $this->validation->$field : $this->user_model->getPropFromID($field);


So this brings me to my question, WTF?

I am a noob with the validation class so feel free to laugh untill I bleed if its something silly.

You need $field lines for each of the rules, even if you just leave it blank - the validation class uses both arrays to populate the form.

Doesnt much explain the backwards nature of my bug though surely? What sort of silly library wipes data from the only ones entered into the array, I would have thought the ones without field would have failed...

Time for validation lib modifications methinks.

Edit, no ignore that, that code was stupid. I will just be a good boy and define all $field's. Sad

There was a mythological creature...a bird called the Phoenix that would ignite at death and then ressurect itself. I believe that the first version of PNphpBB was released for a version of Postnuke called Phoenix. All this sort of goes with your handle.

Anyhow.. have you seen these two gems:
