Subject RE: Problem with validation using both minlength and maxlength on the same field
Date Wed, 01 Dec 2004 18:28:28 GMT
Actually, they are both arg1 for their respective validators... See the

minlength - validate input data isn't less than a specified minimum length.
Requires a minlength variable.

    <field property="name" depends="required,minlength">
        <arg0 key=""/>
        <arg1 name="minlength" key="${var:minlength}" resource="false"/>

maxlength - validate input data doesn't exceed a specified maximum length.
Requires a maxlength variable.

    <field property="name" depends="required,maxlength">
        <arg0 key=""/>
        <arg1 name="maxlength" key="${var:maxlength}" resource="false"/>


P.S. Question for the Day: Why do so many questions lately seem to be
clearly answered in the UserGuides yet always asked?

Despite two other good looking answers, I'd have to say that it seems
that these should _both_ be "arg1" :-)
