EqualTo

New in version 2.3

The EqualTo constraint was introduced in Symfony 2.3.

Validates that a value is equal to another value, defined in the options. To force that a value is not equal, see NotEqualTo.

Caution

This constraint compares using ==, so 3 and "3" are considered equal. Use IdenticalTo to compare with ===.
