SYNOPSIS

    use base 'CGI::Application::CheckRM';
    
    $s->checkRM('_form_profile')
      || return $s->switch_to('myOtherRunMode');
    
    my $ERRORS = $s->dfv_resuts->msgs

DESCRIPTION

This module integrates the Data::FormValidator capability with CGI::Application::Plus or with CGI::Application::Magic.

INTEGRATION

The integration with CGI::Application::Magic is very powerful.

You need just to pass the profile to the checkRM() method and put the labels in the template: no other configuration needed on your side: the error labels in any template will be auto-magically substituted with the error string when needed.

Note: The hash reference returned by the msgs() method will be internally passed as a lookup location to the Template::Magic object.

CGI::Application::Magic Example 1

In your WebAppMagic.pm

    use base 'CGI::Application::Magic';
    use base 'CGI::Application::CheckRM';
    
    sub RM_myRunMode
    {
      my $s = shift ;
      $s->checkRM('_form_profile')
        || return $s->switch_to('myOtherRunMode');
      ...
    }
    
    # the RM_myOtherRunMode method is optional
    
    sub _form_profile
    {
       return { required => 'email',
                msgs     => { any_errors => 'some_errors',
                              prefix     => 'err_',
                             },
              };
    }

Somewhere in the 'myOtherRunMode.html' template (or in any other template) all the label prefixed with 'err_' will be substitute with the relative error if present (with the _form_profile in the example it happens just with 'err_email'):

    <!--{err_email}-->

CGI::Application::Magic Example 2

In your WebAppMagic.pm

    use base 'CGI::Application::Magic';
    use base 'CGI::Application::CheckRM';
    
    sub RM_myRunMode
    {
      my $s = shift ;
      $s->checkRM('_form_profile')
        || return $s->switch_to('myOtherRunMode');
      ...
    }
    
    # the RM_myOtherRunMode method is optional
    
    sub _form_profile
    {
       return { required => 'email',
                msgs     => { any_errors => 'some_errors',
                              prefix     => 'err_',
                             },
              };
    }
    
    package WebAppMagic::Lookups;
    
    sub MISSING
    {
      my $s = shift ;
      my $missing
      if ( $s->dfv_resuts->has_missing )
      {
        foreach my $f ( $s->dfv_resuts->missing )
        {
           $missing .= $f, " is missing\n";
        }
      }
      $missing
    }

Somewhere in the 'myOtherRunMode.html' template (or in any other template) all the 'MISSING' labels will be substitute with the relative error if present:

    <!--{MISSING}-->

CGI::Application::Plus Example

You can use this module with CGI::Application::Plus, but you will have to handle the errors in the runmethod:

In your WebAppPlus.pm

    use base 'CGI::Application::Plus';
    use base 'CGI::Application::CheckRM';
    
    sub RM_myRunMode
    {
      my $s = shift ;
      $s->checkRM('_form_profile')
        || return $s->switch_to('myOtherRunMode');
      ...
    }
    
    sub RM_myOtherRunMode
    {
      my $s  = shift;
      my $ERRORS = $s->dfv_resuts->msgs ; # classical way
      
      # or do something else with the result object
      
      if ( $s->dfv_resuts->has_missing )
      {
        foreach my $f ( $s->dfv_resuts->missing )
        {
           $ERRORS .= $f, " is missing\n";
        }
      }
      ... do_something_useful ...
    }
    
    sub _form_profile
    {
       return { required => 'email',
                msgs     => { any_errors => 'some_errors',
                              prefix     => 'err_',
                             },
              };
    }

METHODS

checkRM ( dfv_profile )

Use this method to check the query parameters with the dfv_profile. It returns 1 on success and 0 on failure. If there are some missing or unvalid fields it set also the dfv_results property to the Data::FormValidator::Results object.

PROPERTY and GROUP ACCESSORS

This module adds a couple of properties to the standard CGI::Application::Plus properties.

dfv_defaults

This group accessor handles the Data::FormValidator constructor arguments that are used in the creation of the internal Data::FormValidator object.

dfv_results

This property allows you to access the Data::FormValidator::Results object set by the checkRM() method only if there are some missing or invalid fields.
