Assimalign Extensions Validation

<br/> <br/>


To create a cleaner implementation to fluent validation and allow for better extensibility.

The key pattern of encapsulation follows this flow:

(encapsulates) └─> Validation Profiles 
                            └─> Validation Items
                                        └─> Validation Rules
  • Validator: The instance running the validation.
  • Validation Profile: The configurable object which describes the validation items and rules.
  • Validation Item: The item being described for validation. (This is usually the member or field of a Type)
  • Validation Rule: The rules to be applied for a specific validation item.

<br/> <br/>

Getting Started

1. Creating a Validation Profile

First create a type and define the validation rules with the built ValidationProfile.

public class Person
    public string FirstName { get; set; }
    public string LastName { get; set; }
    public DateTime Birthday { get; set; }

public class PersonValidationProfile : ValidationProfile<Person>

    public PersonValidationProfile()
        // Specify that the validation stop of first failure
        base.ValidationMode = ValidationMode.Stop;

    public override void Configure(IValidationRuleDescriptor<Person> descriptor)
        descriptor.RuleFor(p => p.FirstName)

        descriptor.RuleFor(p => p.LastName)

        descriptor.RuleFor(p => p.Birthday)

2. Building a Validator

Build a validator by passing the the

var validator = Validator.Create(options => 
    // Optional configurations
    options.ThrowExceptionOnFailure = true; 

    // Required Configurations
    options.AddProfile(new PersonValidationProfile());

3. Running Validation

Instantiate the type and pass it through the validator

var person = new Person() 
    FirstName = "Chase",
    LastName = "Crawford",
    Birthday = default(DateTime)

var validationResults = validator.Validate(person);
