Options

groups

type: array | string

It defines the validation group or groups this constraint belongs to. Read more about validation groups.

message

type: string default: This value should be a multiple of {{ compared_value }}.

This is the message that will be shown if the value is not divisible by the comparison value.

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.

propertyPath

type: string

It defines the object property whose value is used to make the comparison.

For example, if you want to compare the $value property of some object with regard to the $increments property of the same object, use propertyPath="increments" in the comparison constraint of $value.

value

type: mixed [default option]

This option is required. It defines the value to compare to. It can be a string, number or object.
