Invalid rule while validating date
  • Hi,

    I'm trying to use Validation class as it's explained here:

    I've a simple form with a date field I'm using to filter some data, like that:

    <form name="filterByDate" method="post">
    <input type="text" class="date" name="day"/>
    <input class="btn btn-success btn-small" type="submit" name="sbtFilter" value="Filtrer"  />

    In order to validate this form, I'm using Validation class as follows:

                $val = \Fuel\Core\Validation::forge('date_filter_validation');

                $val->add('day', 'jour')->add_rule('required')->add_rule('valid_date');
                    echo "OK<br />";
                    echo "KO<br />";

    But it doesn't work. I'm getting:

    "Notice: Invalid rule "valid_date" passed to Validation, not used. in COREPATH/classes/validation.php [471]: _find_rule"

    If I remove '->add_rule('valid_date')', validation works. But I can't see what I'm doing wrong.

    I hope you can help me.

    Thanks in advance
  • First a remark: do not reference Fuel\Core directly, but use \Validation::forge(). It doesn't cause your issue, but it may cause extension and class reference issues.

    the valid_date rule is defined in the Validation class itself, so it is very odd that it can't be found. What version of FuelPHP are you using? I just pasted your code in a test controller, and it runs find without issues...

  • Hi, Harro. 

    Thanks for the answer. Firstly, I already changed '\Validation::forge()'.

    I'm using 

    * @var  string  The version of Fuel
    const VERSION = '1.5-dev';

    By the way, there's something I didn't tell you: I'm using netbeans 7.3 with the fuelphp plugin.
    This plugin, I mean:

    Maybe is that the problem?

    Thanks again,
  • I don't know netbeans, but I know you need to use some tricks to make netbeans aware of the existense of the aliased classes.

    For phpstorm I use a dummy classes.php file in the root that defines all aliased classes, probably not entirely complete:
  • Hi filemonpi,

    If you have created a new project from existing source, Please run the following:

    Right-click your project node > FuelPHP > create auto completion file

    And the file for code completion is created to your nbproject directory.


Howdy, Stranger!
