NAME

Validation::Class::Backwards - Backwards-Compatibility Layer for Validation::Class

VERSION

version 7.50

SYNOPSIS

    package SomeClass;
    
    use Validation::Class;
    
    package main;
    
    my $class = SomeClass->new;
    
    ...
    
    1;

DESCRIPTION

Validation::Class::Backwards is responsible for providing depreciated functionality to the Validation::Class::Prototype layer whilst clearly remaining separate via namespacing.

Note: The methods described here will eventually become obsolete and cease to exist. Please review the namespace occasionally and adjust your code accordingly. Using methods defined here will generate warnings unless you unset the $ENV{'VALIDATION_CLASS_BC_WARNING'} environment variable.

METHODS

error

DEPRECIATING:

The error method is used to set and/or retrieve errors encountered during validation. The error method with no parameters returns the error message object which is an arrayref of error messages stored at class-level.

    # set errors at the class-level
    return $self->error('this isnt cool', 'unknown somethingorother');
    
    # set an error at the field-level, using the field ref (not field name)
    $self->error($field_object, "i am your error message");

    # return all errors encountered/set as an arrayref
    my $all_errors = $self->error();

RECOMMENDED:

    # see Validation::Class::Errors
    
    # set errors at the class-level
    return $self->errors->add(...);
    
    # set an error at the field-level
    $self->fields->{$field_name}->{errors}->add(...);

    # return all errors encountered
    my $list = $self->errors->list;
