New in Symfony 4.2: DivisibleBy constraint

In Symfony 4.2, the Validator component has introduced a new DivisibleBy constraint to check whether one number is a multiple of ("divisible by") some other number. It's mostly useful for enforcing specific increments on a number:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19
// src/Entity/Item.php
namespace App\Entity;
use Symfony\Component\Validator\Constraints as Assert;

class Item
{
    /**
     * @Assert\DivisibleBy(0.25)
     */
    protected $weight;

    /**
     * @Assert\DivisibleBy(
     *     value = 5,
     *     message = "This item requires to be stocked in multiples of 5 units."
     * )
     */
    protected $quantity;
}

These constraints ensure that that the weight of the Item is provided in increments of 0.25 (e.g. 0.75 and 4.50 would be correct, but 0.18 or 7.32 wouldn't) and the quantity must be divisible by 5 (25 and 22,620 would be correct but 12 or 123,456 wouldn't).
