False

Validates that a value is false. Specifically, this checks to see if the value is exactly false, exactly the integer 0, or exactly the string "0".

Also see True.

Basic Usage

The False constraint can be applied to a property or a "getter" method, but is most commonly useful in the latter case. For example, suppose that you want to guarantee that some state property is not in a dynamic invalidStates array. First, you'd create a "getter" method:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
protected $state;

protected $invalidStates = array();

public function isStateInvalid()
{
    return in_array($this->state, $this->invalidStates);
}

In this case, the underlying object is only valid if the isStateInvalid method returns false:

  • YAML
  • Annotations
  • XML
  • PHP
1
2
3
4
5

# src/BlogBundle/Resources/config/validation.yml
Acme\BlogBundle\Entity\Author
    getters:
        stateInvalid:
            - "False":
                message: You've entered an invalid state.

Caution

When using YAML, be sure to surround False with quotes ("False") or else YAML will convert this into a Boolean value.
