Section ยป assertAllTouched

assertAllTouched(message, options)
assertAllTouched(messageFunction, options)

Assert that all elements of this section (and also, recursively, of all subsections) that were present in the parsed eno document were also queried (and therefore touched) by the application. This, combined with eno's query methods, serves to ensure a two-way guarantee for both users and developers: No data that the application requires can be left out, and no data that the application does not process can be supplied.

enoImportant data A: I need to be processed!
Important data B: Me too!
javascriptconst document = eno.parse(input);

const dataA = document.field('Important data A');

// ... processing happens only for dataA

document.assertAllTouched(); // throws an error with the default message

document.assertAllTouched({ only: ['Important data A'] });  // passes
document.assertAllTouched({ except: ['Important data B'] });  // passes

document.assertAllTouched(({ name, value }) =>  // throws an error "Important data B is not ..."
  `${name} is not supported by the application, please contact support if you think it should be`


message or messageFunction

Optional, usually the default message (An excess element named [NAME] was found, is it possibly a typo?) will do fine. If you want to override it, provide either a static message as a string, or alternatively a function returning a string. (The function is passed name and value inside a single object parameter, although value can be undefined if the untouched element is a fieldset or section)



An array of strings, e.g. ['name', 'email'], which specifies to only check these elements for whether they've been touched.


An array of strings, e.g. ['phone number'], which specifies to exclude these elements from checking whether they've been touched.
