Composition and formatResult

We learned about formatResult earlier. That validator wrapper provides an easy way to augment or transform the objectProps and arrayElements validation results to match the shape your application needs.

In the following example, formatResult is used to create a validationErrors validation result prop. The validationErrors value is flattened array of all validation errors existing in an object or array graph.

import validate, {arrayElements, formatResult} from 'strickland';
const withValidationErrors = (result) => {
const validationErrors = [];
function addErrorsFromObjectProps(resultObjectProps, parentPath) {
if (resultObjectProps) {
Object.keys(resultObjectProps)
// for each prop, get that prop's result
.map((propName) => ({
...resultObjectProps[propName],
propName
}))
// recursively add errors
.forEach(({propName, ...nestedResult}) => {
const propPath = [...parentPath, propName];
addErrorsFromResult({
...nestedResult,
propPath
});
});
}
}
function addErrorsFromArrayElements(resultArrayElements, parentPath) {
if (resultArrayElements) {
// recursively add errors
resultArrayElements.forEach((nestedResult, arrayElement) => {
const propPath = [...parentPath, arrayElement];
addErrorsFromResult({
...nestedResult,
propPath
});
});
}
}
function addErrorsFromResult(nestedResult) {
if (!nestedResult.isValid) {
const {
objectProps,
arrayElements,
propPath = [],
...errorResult
} = nestedResult;
// omit the `objectProps` and `arrayElements`
// result props but include `propPath`
validationErrors.push({propPath, ...errorResult});
addErrorsFromObjectProps(objectProps, propPath);
addErrorsFromArrayElements(arrayElements, propPath);
}
}
addErrorsFromResult(result);
return {
...result,
validationErrors
};
};
const validateWithErrors = formatResult(withValidationErrors, {
name: required(),
addresses: [required(), minLength(1), arrayElements({
addressType: required(),
street: [required(), {
number: required(),
name: required()
}],
city: [required()],
state: [required(), length(2, 2)],
postal: [required(), length(5, 5)]
})]
});
const data = {
name: 'Marty',
addresses: [
{
addressType: 'Home',
street: {
number: 9303,
name: 'Lyon Drive'
},
city: 'Hill Valley',
state: 'CA'
},
{
addressType: 'Work'
}
]
};
const result = validate(validateWithErrors, data);
expect(result).toMatchObject({
validationErrors: [
expect.objectContaining({
value: expect.objectContaining({
name: 'Marty',
addresses: expect.any(Array)
})
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses']
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 0],
value: expect.objectContaining({
addressType: 'Home'
})
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 0, 'postal'],
required: true
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 1],
value: expect.objectContaining({
addressType: 'Work'
})
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 1, 'street'],
required: true
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 1, 'city'],
required: true
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 1, 'state'],
required: true
}),
expect.objectContaining({
propPath: ['addresses', 1, 'postal'],
required: true
})
]
});
