Adding a second argument to CI form_validation callbacks

About a month ago I started working with the CodeIgniter framework. It’s the first framework I have worked with and frankly, I love it!

So I was looking to add a second parameter to a form_validation callback. Here’s what I found:

$this->form_validation('user_name', 'name', "callback_test_name[$param2]");

and the callback:

test_name($name, $param2){
    ..// some logic to return

The form_validation class uses the form value as the first parameter, and you can pass the second parameter in the arguments as you would with any other rule references. (First snippet)

At first I was calling 2 validations. First the standard type of validation, then another validation on the same input. * BAD IDEA *

There were some issues with order of operations. I found it best to chain the whole lot together. Like so:

$this->form_validation('user_name', 'name', "required|min_length[10]|callback_test_name[$param2]");

I hope that helps anybody with the same question.

    Sculpting in time, but found the dry sorrow. That year, I remember this sentence: it is called time, remember
    to bring once sad. As the years passed, frozen fell in love sob intermittently. A little rain of fireworks, to conceal
    the lovesick self overflow. Don’t be silly, doomed the sigh leisurely.

    It’s important also to look at the color and condition of the wood. Wood darkens and shrinks as it ages. Thin panels used as door inserts and drawer bottoms shrink faster than the thicker frames that support them. This shrinkage causes splits or cracks in panels that were nailed to the frame. Panels that were loosely held in place may no longer cover the full space of the frame. Where this is the case, the exposed edge should be slightly lighter in color than the rest of the wood composing the furniture.

    Studies show that green plants are good for workplaces where people perform creative tasks but bad where the work is more monotone.
