      void error(String error)
    • success

      void success()
      Mark this validation as sucessful
    • excludeOtherErrors

      void excludeOtherErrors()
      The error messages of this current validation will take precedence over any others. Other error messages will not be shown. This is useful to prevent validation from leaking to an attacker. For example, the recaptcha validator calls this method so that usernames cannot be phished
