Yii Date validation in rules

Here’s how to specify a date validation rules in the Model.

The idea here is that “Date To” should always be greater than “Date From”. Here’s how to do that

public function rules()
{
   return array(
	array( 'date_to','compare','compareAttribute' => 'date_from','operator'=>'>', 'allowEmpty'=>'false', 'message' => '{attribute} should be greater than "{compareValue}".'),
   );
}

Piece of cake eh?

Have a happy coding! :)
