Customize CActiveForm error

Can I give error message for CActiveForm error and error summary from controller? so i don’t need to use rule in models

actually to customise the message you can put it on the rules() like this


array('comment','length','max'=>1000, 'message'=>'some test!!!'),


So I think you still need to use rule in model

echo $form->errorSummary($model,

  'text before summary container',

  'text after summary container',
