function tripal_validate_bulk_loader_template

2.x tripal_bulk_loader.api.templates.inc tripal_validate_bulk_loader_template($val_type, &$options, &$errors, &$warnings = array())

Validates an $options array for insert or update of a bulk loader record.

Parameters

$val_type: The type of validation. Can be either 'insert' or 'update'.

$options: An array of key/value pairs containing the following keys: 'template_name': The name of the template. 'template_array': The JSON array representing the template. Optional: 'strict': If set then only JSON formatted templates are allowed.

$errors: An empty array where validation error messages will be set. The keys of the array will be name of the field from the options array and the value is the error message.

$warnings: An empty array where validation warning messagges will be set. The warnings should not stop an insert or an update but should be provided to the user as information by a drupal_set_message() if appropriate. The keys of the array will be name of the field from the options array and the value is the error message.

Return value

If validation failes then FALSE is returned. Any options that do not pass validation checks will be added in the $errors array with the key being the option and the value being the error message. If validation is successful then TRUE is returned.
