hi, can anyone tell me that how to remove special characters from the user input and to format the user such as:
123user, user-11, _user, $user etc,
i m using varchar in db for user name.
plus if i have like attribute gender and i want it to be unselected by default and want to use a dropdownlist to select gender from it how can i do it?
For validate the username this rule:
array('username', 'match', 'pattern'=>"/^([a-z0-9_-]*)$/", 'message'=>'url invalid: only letters, number, "-" and "_"'),
For make a ddl for gender:
$form->dropdownList($model, 'gender', array('m'=>'Male', 'f'=>'Female', 'h'=>'Hybrid'), array('prompt'=>''));
The htmlOptions prompt will leave it unseleted by default.
thanks this worked perfect
Glad it helped!
P.s: welcome to the forum!
