Locale

Locale

Validates that a value is a valid locale.

The "value" for each locale is either the two letter ISO 639-1 language code (e.g. fr), or the language code followed by an underscore (_), then the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (e.g. fr_FR for French/France).

Options

message

type: string default: This value is not a valid locale.

This message is shown if the string is not a valid locale.

payload

type: mixed default: null

This option can be used to attach arbitrary domain-specific data to a constraint. The configured payload is not used by the Validator component, but its processing is completely up to you.

For example, you may want to use several error levels to present failed constraints differently in the front-end depending on the severity of the error.
