$sanitizer->intArrayVal() method

Sanitize array to be all unsigned integers with no conversions

This is the same as the intArray() method except for the following:

  • The csv delimited string conversion option is disabled by default.
  • The strict option default is true, meaning non-integer numbers or those outside allowed range are removed rather than converted.

Available since version 3.0.165.


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

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


valuearray, string, mixed

Accepts an array or CSV string. If given something else, it becomes first value in array.

options (optional)array, bool

Options to modify behavior or specify bool for strict option:

  • min (int): Minimum allowed value (default=0)
  • max (int): Maximum allowed value (default=PHP_INT_MAX)
  • maxItems (int): Maximum items allowed in each array (default=0, which means no limit)
  • maxDepth (int): Max nested array depth (default=0, which means no nesting allowed) Since 3.0.160
  • strict (bool): Remove rather than convert any values that are not all digits or fall outside min/max range? (default=true) Note that this default for the strict option is different from the one on the intArray() method.

Return value
