DESCRIPTION

Form::Sensible::Field subclass for representing character-string based data.

ATTRIBUTES

maximum_length

The maximum length this text field should accept. Note that any size of string can be placed in the field, it will simply fail validation if it is too large. Alternately if should_truncate is true, the value will be truncated when it is set.

minimum_length

The minimum length this text field should accept. If defined, validation will fail if the field value is less than this.

should_truncate

Indicates that if value is set to a string larger than maximum_length, it should be automatically truncated to maximum_length. This has to be manually turned on, by default should_truncate is false.

METHODS

get_additional_configuration()

Returns the attributes' names and values as a hash ref.
