Laravel custom validation

Posted 11 months ago by codemode

In my controller i'm doing some validation like :

            [ 'add_button' => 'required|integer|notIn:'.$requested_by ], 
            [ 'notIn' => 'This value has to be different' ]);

...this is in reference to the following format : $this->validate($request, $rules, $customMessages);

So, i'm using the "notIn" validator to check that the "add_button" value is not equal to "$requested_by"

Though the validation works, but the custom message is not not displayed. On the contrary, if i put a custom validation message for "required" or something like "max" - then the custom validation message is displayed just fine.

Where am i going wrong?
