    Hi,

    The dbValues() method does actually have the option of specifying extra values which are valid, which would do what you are looking for.

    The 5th parameter passed in can be an array of valid values as shown in the docs.

    Thanks,
    ->validator(Validate::dbValues(null,null,null,null,['-1'])) was what i was searching for.
