( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I had a similar problem yesterday (and found this thread while doing a bit of research) but found an alternative solution in the module docs and thought I'd write it up here for the next time someone searches.

From the docs:

Multiple constraints can be applied to a single field by defining the value of the constraint to be an array reference.

I needed to (sort of) check the validity of an email address and make sure that the address' owner was not already registered.

To complicate matters a bit further, I needed to check that the entry in a field to confirm the email address matched.

Here's an abridged version of the form profile I used. It presupposes the existence of a Class::DBI derived package that knows about users:

my $profile = { required => [ qw( user_name user_email user_email_confirm # more stuff here... ) ], msgs => { prefix => q[e_], constraints => { # helpful error messages: user_email_valid => q[Invalid address], user_email_lookup => q[Already registered], emails_match => q[Emails don't match], }, }, # tidy entries: filters => ['trim','strip'], constraints => { user_email => [ { name => q[user_email_valid], constraint => q[email], }, { name => q[user_email_lookup], constraint => sub { # have a look in database: !My::Content::User->search( user_email => $_[0], ); }, params => [ qw( user_email ) ], } ], user_email_confirm => { name => q[emails_match], constraint => sub { $_[0] eq $_[1] }, params => [ qw( user_email user_email_confirm ) ], }, # more constraints, perhaps... }, };

HTH someone,

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
