Validation issue

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Having a validation issue when a person enters a - in there name it is kicking it back as invalid.

For axample:

Mary-Ann  Invalid 
Mary Ann Valid

Tried including the - but causing myself a lot of grief.

function filterkudoagent($field){
    // Sanitize user name
    $field = filter_var(trim($field), FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING);

    // Validate user name
    if(filter_var($field, FILTER_VALIDATE_REGEXP, array("options"=>array("regexp"=>"/^[a-zA-Z\s]+$/")))){
        return $field;
    } else {
        return FALSE;
    }
}

Figured it out. Was putting the - in the wrong spot:

options"=>array("regexp"=>"/^[a-zA-Z-\s]+$/")))){

Adding this should work should it not? À-ÿ

regexp"=>"/^[a-zA-ZÀ-ÿ-\s]+$/

I don't know - regex is my Achille's heel (Well, one of them - I'm a centipede in that repect)

Sorry, I only have the problem and not the solution.

lol, thanks Barand. I was able to test it and it worked. So now it is bilingual but not Multi at this time. Maybe down the road.

You can use this regex to match internationally, even Japanese.

/([\w -'\p{L}]+)/
