Subject [jira] [Created] (FLEX-29) Existing validator and formatter classes only validate US and Canadian postcodes
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 07:41:44 GMT
Existing validator and formatter classes only validate US and Canadian postcodes

                 Key: FLEX-29
             Project: Apache Flex
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Justin Mclean
            Assignee: Justin Mclean
            Priority: Minor

Despite the Flex SDK having several supported locales it only supports US and Canadian style
zip codes. It should provide a more flexible way to validate and format worldwide postcodes.

I've created PostCodeValidation and PostCodeFormatter classes that solve that very issue.

The components, tests and example application can be found here:

Compared to the existing validators they:
1. Supports a wide range of postcode  formats both numeric and alpha numeric
2. Provide convenience functions to obtain formats for common locales
3. Provides a  mechanism for user defined validation
4. Supports fullwidth characters (as it uses flash.globization classes for string comparisons)
5. Easier to extend (although less need to do so as they are more flexible)

Code has been:
1. Reviewed by a couple of people on the list and code has been updated based on those reviews.
2. Generates nice ASdocs.
3. Working examples has been provided.
4. Code is unit tested including fullwidth characters.
5. Code is better quality than existing ZipCode validator components (IMO)

Possibly outstanding.
There are some architectural changes that could be made but they they would probably have
to be made to all Validators.
The ASDocs could do with a review but certainly reasonable.
