PHP API Field Type

Value object


The Value class of this Field Type contains the following properties:

Property Type Description
$text string This property will be used for the text content.
String representation

A TextLine's string representation is the $text property's value, as a string.


The constructor for this Value object will initialize a new Value object with the value provided. It accepts a string as argument and will import it to the $text attribute.


The input passed into this Field Type is subject to validation by the StringLengthValidator. The length of the string provided must be between the minimum length defined in minStringLength and the maximum defined in maxStringLength. The default value for both properties is 0, which means that the validation is disabled by default. To set the validation properties, the validateValidatorConfiguration() method needs to be inspected, which will receive an array with minStringLength and maxStringLength like in the following representation:

    [minStringLength] => 1
    [maxStringLength] => 60
