in my data object i need validate image dimensions before uploading.
So i created custom upload validator and it works fine, but i really don't know, how can i propagate my error messages back to upload form.

I'm using ImageField in data object popup form, here is simplified code of image field definition:

$imgField = new ImageField('Image');
$imgField->setValidator(new Custom_ImageValidator());

If i'm uploading image, that is not valid, form (upload iframe) is redirected back because:
but without error message, how can i show these messages?

Don't know if this will work in the iframe field but...

FormResponse::status_message(sprintf('Invalid Size'),'bad');
return FormResponse::respond();

.. works for other custom CMS actions

hi zenmonkey,

i dont know if this rule really works.
We added it quiet a while ago and didnt use this rule meanwhile.

But you could try it.
Download the netefxValidator module and add a rule like:

$rule_logoDimensions = new NetefxValidatorRule("Logo", "FUNCTION", array('NetefxValidatorLibrary',
array('field' => 'Image',
'minWidth' => 10,
'maxWidth' => 0,
'minHeight' => 0,
'maxHeight' => 500)), "The width of the image has to be at least 10px, the height is not allowed to be more than 500px");

Of course you could split it in 2 seperate rules :)

Let me know if this rule doenst work.
