validations Class

This singleton contains a set of validation functions that can be used to validate any type of data. They are most often used in Models, where they are automatically set up and executed.

Namespace: Ext.data

Methods

Name Description
callOverridden(object) Call the original method that was previously overridden with override
  Ext.define('My.Cat', {
            constructor: function() {
            alert("I'm a cat!");
            }
            });
            My.Cat.override({
            constructor: function() {
            alert("I'm going to be a cat!");
            this.callOverridden();
            alert("Meeeeoooowwww");
            }
            });
            var kitty = new My.Cat(); // alerts "I'm going to be a cat!"
            // alerts "I'm a cat!"
            // alerts "Meeeeoooowwww"
            

This method has been deprecated

as of 4.1. Use callParent instead.

callParent(object) Call the "parent" method of the current method. That is the method previously overridden by derivation or by an override (see Ext.define).
  Ext.define('My.Base', {
            constructor: function (x) {
            this.x = x;
            },
            statics: {
            method: function (x) {
            return x;
            }
            }
            });
            Ext.define('My.Derived', {
            extend: 'My.Base',
            constructor: function () {
            this.callParent([21]);
            }
            });
            var obj = new My.Derived();
            alert(obj.x);  // alerts 21
            
This can be used with an override as follows:
  Ext.define('My.DerivedOverride', {
            override: 'My.Derived',
            constructor: function (x) {
            this.callParent([x*2]); // calls original My.Derived constructor
            }
            });
            var obj = new My.Derived();
            alert(obj.x);  // now alerts 42
            
This also works with static methods.
  Ext.define('My.Derived2', {
            extend: 'My.Base',
            statics: {
            method: function (x) {
            return this.callParent([x*2]); // calls My.Base.method
            }
            }
            });
            alert(My.Base.method(10);     // alerts 10
            alert(My.Derived2.method(10); // alerts 20
            
Lastly, it also works with overridden static methods.
  Ext.define('My.Derived2Override', {
            override: 'My.Derived2',
            statics: {
            method: function (x) {
            return this.callParent([x*2]); // calls My.Derived2.method
            }
            }
            });
            alert(My.Derived2.method(10); // now alerts 40
            
email(object, JsString) Validates that an email string is in the correct format
exclusion(object, JsString) Validates that the given value is not present in the configured list. For example:
validations: [{type: 'exclusion', field: 'username', list: ['Admin', 'Operator']}]
            
format(object, JsString) Returns true if the given value passes validation against the configured matcher regex. For example:
validations: [{type: 'format', field: 'username', matcher: /([a-z]+)[0-9]{2,3}/}]
            
getInitialConfig(object) Returns the initial configuration passed to constructor when instantiating this class.
inclusion(object, JsString) Validates that the given value is present in the configured list. For example:
validations: [{type: 'inclusion', field: 'gender', list: ['Male', 'Female']}]
            
initConfig(object) Initialize configuration for this class. a typical example:
  Ext.define('My.awesome.Class', {
            // The default config
            config: {
            name: 'Awesome',
            isAwesome: true
            },
            constructor: function(config) {
            this.initConfig(config);
            }
            });
            var awesome = new My.awesome.Class({
            name: 'Super Awesome'
            });
            alert(awesome.getName()); // 'Super Awesome'
            
length(object, JsString) Returns true if the given value is between the configured min and max values. For example:
validations: [{type: 'length', field: 'name', min: 2}]
            
presence(object, object) Validates that the given value is present. For example:
validations: [{type: 'presence', field: 'age'}]
            
statics() Get the reference to the class from which this object was instantiated. Note that unlike self, this.statics() is scope-independent and it always returns the class from which it was called, regardless of what this points to during run-time
  Ext.define('My.Cat', {
            statics: {
            totalCreated: 0,
            speciesName: 'Cat' // My.Cat.speciesName = 'Cat'
            },
            constructor: function() {
            var statics = this.statics();
            alert(statics.speciesName);     // always equals to 'Cat' no matter what 'this' refers to
            // equivalent to: My.Cat.speciesName
            alert(this.self.speciesName);   // dependent on 'this'
            statics.totalCreated++;
            },
            clone: function() {
            var cloned = new this.self;                      // dependent on 'this'
            cloned.groupName = this.statics().speciesName;   // equivalent to: My.Cat.speciesName
            return cloned;
            }
            });
            Ext.define('My.SnowLeopard', {
            extend: 'My.Cat',
            statics: {
            speciesName: 'Snow Leopard'     // My.SnowLeopard.speciesName = 'Snow Leopard'
            },
            constructor: function() {
            this.callParent();
            }
            });
            var cat = new My.Cat();                 // alerts 'Cat', then alerts 'Cat'
            var snowLeopard = new My.SnowLeopard(); // alerts 'Cat', then alerts 'Snow Leopard'
            var clone = snowLeopard.clone();
            alert(Ext.getClassName(clone));         // alerts 'My.SnowLeopard'
            alert(clone.groupName);                 // alerts 'Cat'
            alert(My.Cat.totalCreated);             // alerts 3
