$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

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
