mandatory / not null columns 25.02.2015 12:47

Hi, is there a way to avoid that the user leaves any blank field whenever he/she inserts or updates a record? My db is set to not accept NULL values in some fields, but it seems the plugin stores empty strings or empty dates and those are accepted.
Also, how can I make the Add Default Value write in the db an actual NULL?

There is no 'required' function/validation at this time. If you set your db column as NOT NULL, then the database will store a blank value if no input is sent. If you remove the NOT NULL property, then a real null value will be inserted if no input is sent.

That's REALLY a shame, cloud you approximately indicate me the code area where the inputs are taken from the form and sent to the DB, so that I can figure out how to add that functionality on my own? Or possibly is it going to be released any time soon?

All our components follow Joomla MVC, so you can follow code easily. In Table Manager, data is sent using javascript located at:


From there, and using form values as reference, you can see controllers and models for each request.
