FormValidation is one of the best validation library for JavaScript. For more info see the official siteand the Github repository.

Overview

Here's an example of multiple basic input types within a form that has FormValidation attached to it.
All input types require the name attribute to bind the input field for validation.
FormValidation is best used together with our integrated SweetAlert2. For more info, please visit the official website.

Text Input

// Define form element
const form = document.getElementById('kt_docs_formvalidation_text');

// Init form validation rules. For more info check the FormValidation plugin's official documentation:https://formvalidation.io/
