$sanitizer->validateFile() method

Validate a file using FileValidator modules

Note that this is intended for validating file data, not file names.

IMPORTANT: This method returns NULL if it can't find a validator for the file. This does not mean the file is invalid, just that it didn't have the tools to validate it.

Usage

// basic usage
$bool = $sanitizer->validateFile(string $filename);

// usage with all arguments
$bool = $sanitizer->validateFile(string $filename, array $options = []);

  • field (Field): Field object associated with $filename.
  • pagefile (Pagefile): Pagefile object associated with $filename.

Return value

bool null

Returns TRUE if valid, FALSE if not, or NULL if no validator available for given file type.

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
