$sanitizer->sanitize() method

Call a sanitizer method indirectly where method name can contain combined/combo methods

This method is primarily here to support predefined sanitizers in strings, like those that might be specified in settings for a module or field. For regular use, you probably want to call the sanitizer methods directly rather than through this method.

Available since version 3.0.125.

Example

// sanitize with text then entities sanitizers
$value = $sanitizer->sanitize($value, 'text,entities');

// numbers appended to text sanitizers imply max length
$value = $sanitizer->sanitize($value, 'text128,entities'); 

Usage

// basic usage
$string = $sanitizer->sanitize(mixed $value);

// usage with all arguments
$string = $sanitizer->sanitize(mixed $value, string $method = 'text');

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
valuemixed
method (optional)string

Method name "method", or combined method name(s) "method1,method2,method3"

Return value

string int array float null

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
