$sanitizer->arrayVal() method

Simply sanitize value to array with no conversions

This is the same as the array() sanitizer except that it does not attempt to convert delimited/csv strings to arrays. Meaning, a delimited string would simply become an array with the first item being that delimited string.

Available since version 3.0.165.


// basic usage
$array = $sanitizer->arrayVal(mixed $value);

// usage with all arguments
$array = $sanitizer->arrayVal(mixed $value, $options = []);


options (optional)

Return value
