This is probably a trivial question, but I can’t figure it out.
I want my price value to have 2 decimal places. CakePHP should validate this, but it doesn’t. CakePHP only checks if the input is a number and doesn’t allow to pass decimal values.
I want it to check and pass values like
2.22 but also
2. Now it only allows the latter.
$validator ->decimal('price') ->allowEmpty('price');
I checked CakePHP API and found decimal() method description:
decimal( float $check , integer|null $places null , string|null $regex null )
Checks that a value is a valid decimal. Both the sign and exponent are optional.
But it does not take string as a parameter in this context(and CakePHP assign decimal() to my price column automatically during baking), so I guess this is why
decimal('price', 2) don’t work.
