When your module defines the form and the form controller, you can add your validation logic as part of the form controller. This is done via the implementation of a
validateForm() method. The
FormBuilder service will automatically invoke this method at the appropriate time during the process of submitting a form. While the
validateForm() method is required by
\Drupal\Core\Form\FormInterface, an empty method will fulfill that requirement. It's up to you to provide appropriate validation code inside the method.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Use the
validateForm()method of a form controller to verify user input
- Demonstrate how to raise errors on a form element when it doesn't pass validation
By the end of this tutorial you should know how to validate your custom forms.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
