How to use form validation in Laravel 6

In this tutorial, I will explain you how to use form validation in Laravel 6. We will use Laravel 6 form validation with display error messages on view file. We can use Laravel default validation rules like required, email, unique, numeric, date, ip, in_array, it, ite, max, min, image, mimes etc.

You can also define custom error messages in Laravel 6 form validation. we will display error message with each field. we will use has() for checking is error message in Laravel 6.

Here, i am going to show you very simple example of form validation so, you can simply use in your Laravel 6 project.

Step 1:Create Routes:

Here we are learning simple and easy example of validation in Laravel 6 so just add following both route in your web.php file.

routes/web.php

Route::get('user/create', '[email protected]');
Route::post('user/create', '[email protected]');

Create Controller:

Now we will add two controller method, one will just display blade file with get request, and another for post request, i write validation for that, so simply add both following method on it.

app/Http/Controllers/HomeController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request; use App\User;

class HomeController extends Controller { /** * Show the application dashboard. * * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response */ public function create() { return view('createUser'); }

/**
 * Show the application dashboard.
 *
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
public function store(Request $request)
{
    $request-&gt;validate([
            'name' =&gt; 'required',
            'password' =&gt; 'required|min:5',
            'email' =&gt; 'required|email|unique:users'
        ], [
            'name.required' =&gt; 'Name is required',
            'password.required' =&gt; 'Password is required'
        ]);

    $input = $request-&gt;all();
    $input['password'] = bcrypt($input['password']);
    $user = User::create($input);

    return back()-&gt;with('success', 'User created successfully.');
}

}

Create Blade File:

now here we will create createUser.blade.php file and here we will create bootstrap simple form with error validation message. So, let's create following file:

resources/views/createUser.blade.php

            @endif
        &lt;/div&gt;

        &lt;div class="form-group"&gt;
            &lt;button class="btn btn-success btn-submit"&gt;Submit&lt;/button&gt;
        &lt;/div&gt;
    &lt;/form&gt;
&lt;/div&gt;
