I am right now also looking how to get a feedback from a postgrsql-check back to php.
I thought about using named constraints:
CREATE TABLE test (
[whatever fields you need]
CONSTRAINT "!!!#Please check XYZ in the formular#" CHECK ([whatever you like to test])
Next, I would check in php if an error occured in the sql-query, if the error includes "!!!" in the error message from postgresql I would display the formular again with the values already entered and I would display as a feedback to the user the string between the two "##":
Please check XYZ in the formular
One drawback is of course that it will only give feedback from one error at a time.
