Validator with error messages problem


I wrote this validator to check if a attribute of my CFormModel is empty when another attribute starts with a string.

	public function rules()


		return array(

			// name, email, subject and body are required

			array('escolha', 'required'),

			array('torneio, clan, servidor', 'numerical', 'integerOnly'=>true),

			array('torneio', 'requiredIfStartsWith', 'attribute'=>'escolha', 'value'=>'T'),

			array('clan', 'requiredIfStartsWith', 'attribute'=>'escolha', 'value'=>'C'),

			array('servidor', 'requiredIfStartsWith', 'attribute'=>'escolha', 'value'=>'S'),




	public function requiredIfStartsWith($attribute,$params)


	    $match = $params['attribute'];

	    $value = $params['value'];


	    if(substr($this->$match,0,strlen($value)) == $value)




	    		$this->addError($attribute, Yii::t('yii','{attribute} cannot be blank.'));




The validator is working fine, but no error message appears.

View code for the attribute servidor:

<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'servidor'); ?>

<?php echo $form->dropDownList($model,'servidor', CHtml::listData($servidores, 'id', 'nome'),array('prompt'=>''));?>

<?php echo CHtml::link(CHtml::image(Yii::app()->request->baseUrl."/images/plus_small.png",Yii::t('app','Add Server'),array("title"=>Yii::t('app','Add Server'))), $this->createUrl("servidor/create",array("retorno"=>"loja/index")));?>

<?php echo $form->error($model,'servidor'); ?>

That’s my first time with validators. Anyone see what is the problem?

The problem was solved… I was creating a new instance of my CFormModel.

Please close it.
