form text field: treat default value as empty

Hello Community,
I'm new to CodeIgniter and I have very simple problem. I have form field:
form_input("name", set_value("name", "New Category Name")
we have text field with value New Category name, now I neeed in validation to check that value is not empty but it shoul;d not be default value as well. In plain PHP I would do:
if($name == '' || $name == "New Category Name")
    return false;
How do I achieve that in CI, I have in controller function:
$this->form_validation->set_rules("name", "Category Name", "trim|required");

but that will just check if field is empty.



helped you?

yes it is, thanks a lot, I was looking in user guide but I probably didn't look enough.
