DESCRIPTION

This plugin provide auto validation to Plugin::FormValidator::Simple.

You can define validation profiles into config or YAML file, and no longer have to write it in actions.

BUNDLING ERROR MESSAGES

With 0.08 or earlier version, you need define validator profiles and error messages in separately.

So, you had to write two settings like this:

    # profiles.yml
    action1:
      param1:
        - NOT_BLANK
    
    # messages.yml
    action1:
      param1:
        NOT_BLANK: param1 is required!

It's bothered!

Since 0.09, you can place error messages in profiles config.

Above two configs is equals to:

    # profiles.yml
    action1:
      param1:
        - rule: NOT_BLANK
          message: param1 is required!

METHODS

form_messages

form_messages( 'key' );

If the key isn't presented, return all messages as hash.
