Validate your input, Magento style

Featured Image

I’m sure most fo you will agree that Magento’s frontend validation for form input fields is a nice feature. All it takes is for you to add some CSS classes to the input fields and then upon form submission validation is triggered that outputs, by default, red colored messages that point the possible validation failures etc. This validation is done on the client side via Java Script.

For example, if you open the app/design/frontend/base/default/template/customer/form/register.phtml file and focus on the input fields and their “class” attributes you will see some of them named: “required-entry”, “validate-email”, “validate-zip-international”, etc. All of these are tied to the Java Script validation rules defined under js/prototype/validation.js file.

Validation.add('IsEmpty', '', function(v) {
    return  (v == '' || (v == null) || (v.length == 0) || /^\s+$/.test(v)); // || /^\s+$/.test(v));
});

If we extract those from code, here is the list of validations available on client side trough Javascript:

  • IsEmpty
  • validate-select
  • required-entry
  • validate-number
  • validate-digits
  • validate-digits-range
  • validate-alpha
  • validate-code
  • validate-alphanum
  • validate-street
  • validate-phoneStrict
  • validate-phoneLax
  • validate-fax
  • validate-date
  • validate-email
  • validate-emailSender
  • validate-password
  • validate-admin-password
  • validate-cpassword
  • validate-url
  • validate-clean-url
  • validate-identifier
  • validate-xml-identifier
  • validate-ssn
  • validate-zip
  • validate-zip-international
  • validate-date-au
  • validate-currency-dollar
  • validate-one-required
  • validate-one-required-by-name
  • validate-not-negative-number
  • validate-state
  • validate-new-password
  • validate-greater-than-zero
  • validate-zero-or-greater
  • validate-cc-number
  • validate-cc-type
  • validate-cc-type-select
  • validate-cc-exp
  • validate-cc-cvn
  • validate-ajax
  • validate-data
  • validate-css-length
  • validate-length
  • validate-percents
  • required-file
  • validate-cc-ukss

The above mentioned handles the validation of data on the client side. However, client side data can be falsified/manipulated. What we need is the server side validation as well. Let’s check out few examples to see how Magento is handling the server side of the things.

First lets check out the “Customer Account Create” logic. Creating a new customer submits the POST of data to the Mage_Customer_AccountController->createPostAction(). Since customer and customer address are “EAV models”, they have a special way of handling the validation of data, they pass the POST data to the validateData() method of your custom class instance which extends the Mage_Eav_Model_Form class. Below is a code snippet that shows this:

/* @var $customerForm Mage_Customer_Model_Form */
$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer');
 
$customerForm = Mage::getModel('customer/form');
$customerForm->setFormCode('customer_account_create')
    ->setEntity($customer);
 
$customerData = $customerForm->extractData($this->getRequest());
// ...
$customerErrors = $customerForm->validateData($customerData);

Validating data on the “data models” is done somewhat different, here the model itself is suppose to implement the validate() method. For example, lets check out the Mage_Review_Model_Review model and the action of saving/creating the review itself, Mage_Review_ProductController->postAction():

    public function postAction()
    {
        if ($data = Mage::getSingleton('review/session')->getFormData(true)) {
            $rating = array();
            if (isset($data['ratings']) && is_array($data['ratings'])) {
                $rating = $data['ratings'];
            }
        } else {
            $data   = $this->getRequest()->getPost();
            $rating = $this->getRequest()->getParam('ratings', array());
        }
 
        if (($product = $this->_initProduct()) && !empty($data)) {
            $session    = Mage::getSingleton('core/session');
            /* @var $session Mage_Core_Model_Session */
            $review     = Mage::getModel('review/review')->setData($data);
            /* @var $review Mage_Review_Model_Review */
 
            $validate = $review->validate();
            if ($validate === true) {
            // ...

The validate() points to the Mage_Review_Model_Review->validate(), which is implemented into the model itself:

    public function validate()
    {
        $errors = array();
 
        $helper = Mage::helper('customer');
 
        if (!Zend_Validate::is($this->getTitle(), 'NotEmpty')) {
            $errors[] = $helper->__('Review summary can\'t be empty');
        }
 
        if (!Zend_Validate::is($this->getNickname(), 'NotEmpty')) {
            $errors[] = $helper->__('Nickname can\'t be empty');
        }
 
        if (!Zend_Validate::is($this->getDetail(), 'NotEmpty')) {
            $errors[] = $helper->__('Review can\'t be empty');
        }
 
        if (empty($errors)) {
            return true;
        }
        return $errors;
    }

As you can see, there is not anything Magento specific here actually, only Zend_Validate calls. However, its a good practice to define and implement validate() method if you are using data models.

Additionally, there is a Mage_Core_Model_Input_Filter_MaliciousCode class which implements the filter() method for filtering out malicious code as the name of the class suggests. You can open the class itself and look for $_expressions to see what expressions it covers by default.

Hope it helps. Cheers.

  1. Please Help. Out of nowhere i get now always a message that the password and confirm password fields do not match, but believe me that they are equal. What should I do? Is this a javascript error? Did anyone experience something like this?

  2. Thank you Pavel!

    I’ve also found that this class and function are useful for showing validation messages only.
    I.e. I have to implement Ajax part and then call .ajaxError if error occured.

    — Andrey.

  3. @Andrey rule validate-ajax is set up to always return true flag.

    ['validate-ajax', '', function(v, elm) { return true; }],

    You can use ajaxError method to force validation advice in your form:

    Validation.ajaxError($(response.attribute), response.message);

    and this will show your message + add validate-ajax class to the element.

  4. Hi,

    Did someone used ‘validate-ajax’ ?
    I can’t figure out how to use it.

    Thanks,
    Andrey

  5. Hi,

    Can you please tell why cvv option not showing in creditcard(save) option.
    At first it was showed.
    but its not showing now
    Please tell why

    1. Go to ” System -> Configuration -> Payment methods ” in back end. Then underv “saved cc” You can find “Request Card Security Code” option . make it as “Yes”

  6. Some extra validation occurs at times. For instance, email validation uses the Zend_Validate_EmailAddress() function. For my SSO login, I have to parse exactly as magento does. I use the following to validate email on the php side.

     $validator = new Zend_Validate_EmailAddress();
                    if(!$validator->isValid($samlresponse->get_email())) {
                            $msg = "";
                            foreach($validator->getMessages() as $type => $message) {
                                    $msg .= "&" . $type . "=" . $message;
                            }
    
                            UserErrorRedirect("Invalid Email Address" . $msg);
                    }
  7. Hi,

    Magento validation works for only core files.But how to make it to work for local module created files.
    I created my own module and i wanted to use existing validations by using classes like required-entry and all but it’s not working.Can you please guide me.

    Regards,
    Sairam

  8. How can i check double tax vat field in the magento system?
