Validation Constraints Reference

The Validator is designed to validate objects against constraints. In real life, a constraint could be: "The cake must not be burned". In Symfony2, constraints are similar: They are assertions that a condition is true.

Supported Constraints

The following constraints are natively available in Symfony2:

These are the basic constraints: use them to assert very basic things about the value of properties or the return value of methods on your object.

String Constraints

Number Constraints

Date Constraints
