ValidationKomensky for Android

A simple library for validating user input in forms using annotations.

Features:

  • Validate all views at once and show feedback to user. With one line of code.
  • Live validation - check user input as he moves between views with immediate feedback.
  • Extensible library - you can add your own validations or adapters for custom views.

How to include it in your project:

With Gradle:

compile 'eu.inmite.android.lib:android-validation-komensky:0.9.4@aar'

Manually:

  • clone the project
  • add it as library project in your IDE

How to validate

First, annotate your views like this:

@NotEmpty(messageId = R.string.validation_name)
@MinLength(value = 3, messageId = R.string.validation_name_length, order = 2)
private EditText mNameEditText;

Now you are ready to:

FormValidator.validate(this, new SimpleErrorPopupCallback(this));

You will receive collection of all failed validations in a callback and you can present them to the user as you want. Or simply use prepared callbacks (like SimpleErrorPopupCallback).

Live validation

To start and stop live validation, simply call:

FormValidator.startLiveValidation(this, new SimpleErrorPopupCallback(this));
FormValidator.stopLiveValidation(this);

List of all supported validation annotations

Validations supported out of the box:

@NotEmpty(messageId = R.string.validation_name, order = 1)
private EditText mNameEditText;
@MinLength(value = 1, messageId = R.string.validation_participants, order = 2)
private EditText mNameEditText;
@MinValue(value = 2L, messageId = R.string.validation_name_length)
private EditText mEditNumberOfParticipants;
@MinNumberValue(value = "5.5", messageId = R.string.validation_name_length)
private EditText mEditPotentialOfHydrogen;
@RegExp(value = EMAIL, messageId = R.string.validation_valid_email)
private EditText mEditEmail;
@RegExp(value = "^[0-9]+$", messageId = R.string.validation_valid_count)
private EditText mEditCount;
@DateInFuture(messageId = R.string.validation_date)
private TextView mTxtDate;
@DateNoWeekend(messageId = R.string.validation_date_weekend)
private TextView mTxtDate;
@Custom(value = MyVeryOwnValidator.class, messageId = R.string.validation_custom)
private EditText mNameEditText;

Proguard

Should you need to use the proguard, copy these rules:

-keepattributes *Annotation*
-keep class eu.inmite.android.lib.validations.form.annotations.** { *; }
-keep class * implements eu.inmite.android.lib.validations.form.iface.ICondition
-keep class * implements eu.inmite.android.lib.validations.form.iface.IValidator
-keep class * implements eu.inmite.android.lib.validations.form.iface.IFieldAdapter
-keepclassmembers class ** {
 @eu.inmite.android.lib.validations.form.annotations.** *;
}

Why 'Komensky'?

Jan Ámos Komenský was a famous Czech educator, father of modern education methods.  Teachers tend to correct you, just like this library. You won't miss any errors in the user input.
