$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
