Isbn

Isbn

New in version 2.3: The Isbn constraint was introduced in Symfony 2.3.

Caution

The isbn10 and isbn13 options are deprecated since Symfony 2.5 and will be removed in Symfony 3.0. Use the type option instead. Furthermore, when using the type option, lowercase characters are no longer supported starting in Symfony 2.5, as they are not allowed in ISBNs.

This constraint validates that an International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is either a valid ISBN-10 or a valid ISBN-13.

Applies to property or method
Options
Class Isbn
Validator IsbnValidator

Basic Usage

To use the Isbn validator, simply apply it to a property or method on an object that will contain an ISBN.
