Class yii\validators\SafeValidator

Inheritanceyii\validators\SafeValidator » yii\validators\Validator » yii\base\Component » yii\base\Object
Implementsyii\base\Configurable
Available since version2.0
Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/validators/SafeValidator.php

SafeValidator serves as a dummy validator whose main purpose is to mark the attributes to be safe for massive assignment.

This class is required because of the way in which Yii determines whether a property is safe for massive assignment, that is, when a user submits form data to be loaded into a model directly from the POST data, is it ok for a property to be copied. In many cases, this is required but because sometimes properties are internal and you do not want the POST data to be able to override these internal values (especially things like database row ids), Yii assumes all values are unsafe for massive assignment unless a validation rule exists for the property, which in most cases it will. Sometimes, however, an item is safe for massive assigment but does not have a validation rule associated with it - for instance, due to no validation being performed, in which case, you use this class as a validation rule for that property. Although it has no functionality, it allows Yii to determine that the property is safe to copy.

Note: $when property is not supported by SafeValidator.

Method Details

validateAttribute() public method

Validates a single attribute.

Child classes must implement this method to provide the actual validation logic.

public void validateAttribute ( $model, $attribute )
$model yii\base\Model

The data model to be validated

$attribute string

The name of the attribute to be validated.

validateAttributes() public method

Validates the specified object.

public void validateAttributes ( $model, $attributes null )
$model yii\base\Model

The data model being validated

$attributes array|null

The list of attributes to be validated. Note that if an attribute is not associated with the validator - it will be ignored. If this parameter is null, every attribute listed in $attributes will be validated.
