Vue 3 + VeeValidate - Form Validation Example (Options API)

Example built with Vue 3.2.31 and VeeValidate 4.5.11

Other versions available:

This is a quick example of how to setup form validation in Vue 3 using VeeValidate.

Vue Options API

The component in the example is built with the traditional Vue Options API that comes with Vue 2 & 3. Component logic is defined within options (e.g. components, data, methods) on an exported object.

For the same example built with the new Vue 3 Composition API see Vue 3 + VeeValidate - Form Validation Example (Composition API)

VeeValidate

VeeValidate is a library for building, validating and handling forms in Vue.js. VeeValidate 4 was recently released and is compatible with Vue 3, the official docs are available at https://vee-validate.logaretm.com/v4.

The example is a simple registration form with pretty standard fields for title, first name, last name, date of birth, email, password, confirm password and an accept terms and conditions checkbox. All fields are required including the checkbox, the dob must be a valid date, the email address must be in a valid format, the password field must have a min length of 6, and the confirm password and password fields must match.

Styling of the example is all done with Bootstrap 4.5 CSS, for more info see https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.5/getting-started/introduction/.

Here it is in action: (See on StackBlitz at https://stackblitz.com/edit/vue-3-veevalidate-example)

Update History:

  • 12 Apr 2022 - Updated tutorial to Vue.js 3.2.31 and VeeValidate 4.5.11
  • 01 Oct 2020 - Built tutorial with Vue.js 3.0.0 and VeeValidate 4.0.0-alpha.14


Vue 3 + VeeValidate Form Validation App Component with Options API

The app component data option defines the form validation rules with the Yup schema validation library which VeeValidate supports out of the box, for more info on Yup see https://github.com/jquense/yup.

The onSubmit() method is called when the form is valid and submitted, and simply displays the contents of the form in a javascript alert.

The app component template contains the form with all of the input fields and validation messages. The form and fields are built with the VeeValidate <Form /> and <Field /> components which automatically hook into the validation rules (schema) based on the name of each field.

The form calls the onSubmit() method when the form is submitted and valid. Validation rules are bound to the form with the validation-schema prop, and validation errors are provided to the form template via the scoped slot v-slot="{ errors }".

<script>
import { Form, Field } from 'vee-validate';
import * as Yup from 'yup';

export default {
    components: {
        Form,
        Field,
    },
    data() {
        const schema = Yup.object().shape({
            title: Yup.string()
                .required('Title is required'),
            firstName: Yup.string()
                .required('First Name is required'),
            lastName: Yup.string()
                .required('Last name is required'),
            dob: Yup.string()
                .required('Date of Birth is required')
                .matches(/^\d{4}-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])$/, 'Date of Birth must be a valid date in the format YYYY-MM-DD'),
            email: Yup.string()
                .required('Email is required')
                .email('Email is invalid'),
            password: Yup.string()
                .min(6, 'Password must be at least 6 characters')
                .required('Password is required'),
            confirmPassword: Yup.string()
                .oneOf([Yup.ref('password'), null], 'Passwords must match')
                .required('Confirm Password is required'),
            acceptTerms: Yup.string()
                .required('Accept Ts & Cs is required')
        });

        return { 
            schema 
        }
    },
    methods: {
        onSubmit(values) {
            // display form values on success
            alert('SUCCESS!! :-)\n\n' + JSON.stringify(values, null, 4));
        }
    }
}
