Remarks

The IntegerValidator class is used to ensure that an integer meets specific criteria. The criteria for validation are established when an instance of the IntegerValidator class is created. The IntegerValidator constructor with two parameters ensures that the integer being verified adheres to both a minimum and a maximum value. The IntegerValidator constructor with three parameters checks both the minimum and maximum Int32 values, as well as whether the value to be validated is within the specified range. The IntegerValidator constructor with four parameters checks the previous three parameters and also checks whether the Int32 value is equal to a specific resolution.

The CanValidate method determines whether the object type being validated matches the expected type. The object being validated is passed as a parameter of the Validate method.
