class Athena::Validator::Constraints::NotBlank
inherits Athena::Validator::Constraint #

Validates that a value is not blank; meaning not equal to a blank string, an empty Iterable, false, or optionally nil.


Optional Arguments#


Type: Bool Default: false

If set to true, nil values are considered valid and will not trigger a violation.


Type: String Default: This value should not be blank.

The message that will be shown if the value is blank.


The following placeholders can be used in this message:

  • {{ value }} - The current (invalid) value.

Type: Array(String) | String | Nil Default: nil

The validation groups this constraint belongs to. AVD::Constraint::DEFAULT_GROUP is assumed if nil.


Type: Hash(String, String)? Default: nil

Any arbitrary domain-specific data that should be stored with this constraint. The payload is not used by Athena::Validator, but its processing is completely up to you.
