1 token.inc token_element_validate(&$element, &$form_state)

Validate a form element that should have tokens in it.

Form elements that want to add this validation should have the #token_types parameter defined.

For example:

$form['my_node_text_element'] = array(
  '#type' => 'textfield',
  '#title' => t('Some text to token-ize that has a node context.'),
  '#default_value' => 'The title of this node is [node:title].',
  '#element_validate' => array('token_element_validate'),
  '#token_types' => array('node'),
  '#min_tokens' => 1,
  '#max_tokens' => 10,
