How to validate Email in yii

Yii is a great framework for form validation,today i am going to show you how to validate the email field in the form before submitting.Its very simple just follow the below example

if you created a user model with email as one attribute
then in the rules function add the following code

public function rules()
 {
  
  return array(
   ...
   array('email', 'email','checkMX'=>true),
   ..
  );
 }

thats it

also look at the code i have added a checkMX=true(this is used for checking that domain exists),you could ignore it if you want
