$c->form object


sub form {

    if ( $_[0] ) {
        my $form = $_[1] ? {@_} : $_[0];

=head1 NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::FormValidator - Data::FormValidator
plugin for Catalyst.


    use Catalyst 'FormValidator';

    $c->form( optional => ['rest'] );
    print $c->form->valid('rest');

Note that not only is this plugin disrecommended (as it takes over the global
C<< $c->form >> method, rather than being applyable in only part of your
application), but L<Data::FormValidator> itself is not recommended for use.


This plugin uses L<Data::FormValidator> to validate and set up form data
from your request parameters. It's a quite thin wrapper around that
module, so most of the relevant information can be found there.


=head2 METHODS

=head3 form

Merge values with FormValidator.

    $c->form( required => ['yada'] );

Returns a L<Data::FormValidator::Results> object.


The actual parameters sent to $c->form are the same as the profile in
L<Data::FormValidator>'s check function.
