Ideal Validation?

    # We can validate information
    valid?(98.6, :number)
    #=> true
    

Get user input THEN validate it in some place.

Stop them at the Source

    # We can validate user input at the source
    @username_textfield.validates(:number).on(:invalid) do
      # Alert the user!

Validation as a Rule

Built on the Utility

Validation as a Rule

 

    # Add a rule to a textfield
    rmq(@user_email).validates(:email)
    
    # Add rule ass we append fields
    rmq.append(UITextField, :weight).validates(:digits)
    rmq.append(UITextField, :name).validates(:presence)
    
    # Check that input
    rmq(@user_email).valid?
    
    # Check every applied rule
    rmq.all.valid?

Who's Bad?

    # Useless at first
    rmq(some_selection_criteria).invalid 
    rmq(some_selection_criteria).valid
    
    # moment of judgement
    rmq.all.valid?
    
    # All invalid views as an array
    rmq.all.invalid 
    # All valid views as an array
    rmq.all.valid

Who's Bad?


# I react depending on my own state
rmq.append(UITextField).validates(:digits).on(:valid) do
 #valid
 puts "WOWZERZ field is valid <3 <3 <3"

end.on(:invalid) do |invalid|
 #invalid
 puts "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!1!1"

end

Easy Come - Easy Go


    # Bye bye Guy
    rmq(some_selection).clear_validations!
    
    # Later alligator
    rmq.all.clear_validations!

Informative Errors

We can be friendly

validation_errors

    # Returns array of error messages for every invalid item in selection
    rmq.all.validation_errors
    # E.G ["Validation Error - input requires valid email."]

We can be friendly

custom error messages


    # do this in your stylesheet
    def user(st)
      #custom validation images
      st.validation_errors = {
        email: "Please check your user email and try again"
      }
    end
    
  # overrides "Validation Error - input requires valid email."

Custom Validations with Selection Rules!?!

Custom Validations with Selection Rules!?!

Custom Validation Rules

 

the easy way - simple regex


    append(UITextField).validates(:custom, regex: /^test$/)

Custom Validation Rules


    rmq.validation.add_validator(:first_letter) do |value, opts|
        value.start_with?(opts[:letter])
    end

Now use it!

    some_field = append(UITextField).validates(:first_letter, letter: 'x')
    some_field.data("test")
    some_field.valid? # => false
    some_field.data("xenophobia")
    some_field.valid? # => true
