Instance Method Details

Hook method that gets called by the initializer allowing verification that the arguments supplied are valid. You could for example raise an ArgumentError when invalid options are supplied.

def check_validity!
end

- (Object) validate(record)

Performs validation on the supplied record. By default this will call validates_each to determine validity therefore subclasses should override validates_each with validation logic.

def validate(record)
  attributes.each do |attribute|
    value = record.read_attribute_for_validation(attribute)
    next if (value.nil? && options[:allow_nil]) || (value.blank? && options[:allow_blank])
    validate_each(record, attribute, value)
  end
end

- (Object) validate_each(record, attribute, value)

Override this method in subclasses with the validation logic, adding errors to the records errors array where necessary.

Raises:
