We are so excited to bring you a major release for cbValidation! cbValidation has been around for quite some time and it was about time to give a major boost in development. We have also completely rewritten the documentation to make it more attractive and user-friendly (https://coldbox-validation.ortusbooks.com/). Enjoy!

Release Notes

2.1.0

  • feature : Added constraintProfiles to allow you to define which fields to validate according to defined profiles: https://github.com/coldbox-modules/cbvalidation/issues/37
  • feature : Updated RequiredUnless and RequiredIf to use struct literal notation instead of the weird parsing we did.
  • feature : Added the Unique validator thanks to @elpete!
  • improvement : Added null support for the RequiredIf,RequiredUnless validator values

2.0.0

Features

  • No more manual discovery of validators, automated registration and lookup process, cleaned lots of code on this one!
  • New Validator: Accepted - The field under validation must be yes, on, 1, or true. This is useful for validating "Terms of Service" acceptance.
  • New Validator: Alpha - Only allows alphabetic characters
  • New Validator: RequiredUnless with validation data as a struct literal { anotherField:value, ... } - The field under validation must be present and not empty unless the anotherfield field is equal to the passed value.
  • New Validator: RequiredIf with validation data as a struct literal { anotherField:value, ... } - The field under validation must be present and not empty if the anotherfield field is equal to the passed value.
  • Accelerated validation by removing type checks. ACF chokes on interface checks

Improvements

  • Consistency on all validators to ignore null or empty values except the Required validator
  • Formatting consistencies
  • Improve error messages to describe better validation
  • Get away from evaluate() instead use invoke()

Compat & Bugs

  • Bugs : Fixed lots of wrong type exceptions
  • Compat : Remove ACF11 support
