Simple Form Validation question!

Hey all,

I'm new to CI and just have a quick question. After running form validation like below how do you call the validated and clean data.

Code:
set rules code...

if ($this->form_validation->run() == FALSE)
{
$this->load->view('login_form');

} else {

$username = $this->input->post('username');
$password = $this->input->post('password');

}

Would this be correct or am I just calling data that has not been validated.

Thanks

Input will have clean data after you validated it, so it's safe to use:

Code:
$username = $this->input->post('username');

If the form validated succesfully, the values of the $_POST are updated with the result of the validation, so yes, your input has been validated (and cleaned if you asked it to).

Thanks again for the quick reply.

One more question is there any way for the user to specify how long they want until the session cookie will expire?

A way of overriding the $config['sess_expiration'] so when the users login they can input say 30mins?

I have tried to destroy the session cookie and make a new one but with no luck. Maybe someone could point me to some links etc.

Code:
function _set_cookie($expire)
    {
        $CI =& get_instance();
        $CI->load->helper('cookie');

        $expire = (60 * $expire) + time();

        $cookie_name = $CI->config->item('sess_cookie_name');
        $cookie_data = get_cookie($cookie_name, TRUE);

        delete_cookie($cookie_name);

        setcookie(
                $cookie_name,
                $cookie_data,
                time() - 31500000,
                $CI->config->item('cookie_path'),
                $CI->config->item('cookie_domain'),
                0
                );

        setcookie(
                $cookie_name,
                $cookie_data, // session id
                $expire,
                $CI->config->item('cookie_path'),
                $CI->config->item('cookie_domain'),
                0
                );
    }

Thanks again!

You can modify the session expiration variable at runtime:
Code:
$this->session->sess_expiration = 60*30; // set it to 30 minutes
