Instance methods


Validates the given value. None of the values set in this ExcludedRule object must exist in the value that is given for validation to pass.

public void Validate(string path, Schema schema, object value, List<ValidationResult> results)

  • path: string - the dot notation path to the value that is to be validated.
  • schema: Schema - (not used in this implementation).
  • value: object - the value that is to be validated.
  • results: List<ValidationResult> - the results of the validation.


var schema = new Schema().WithRule(new ExcludedRule(1, 2, 3));

schema.Validate(2);      // Result: 2 must not be one of 1, 2, 3
schema.Validate(10);     // Result: no errors
