Hi artisan,

As we know laravel 6 provide date validation like date after, date_format, after_or_equal:date, before:date, before_or_equal:date etc. so in this example, i will show you how to use validation date after or equal today in laravel, how to use date_format validation in laravel, laravel validation date before or equal today etc.

You can see i listed following date validation that provided by laravel by default:

1) date

2) date_format

3) after:date

4) after_or_equal:date

5) before:date

6) before_or_equal:date

Now we will show one by one with example so, let's see bellow controller example:

date Validation:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'birth_date' => 'date'

]);

}

date_format Validation:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'birth_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y'

]);

}

after Validation:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'start_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|after:tomorrow'

]);

}

after_or_equal Validation:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$todayDate = date('m/d/Y');

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'start_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|after_or_equal:'.$todayDate

]);

}

before Validation:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'end_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|before:start_date',

'start_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|after:tomorrow'

]);

}

before_or_equal Validation:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'end_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|before_or_equal:start_date',

'start_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|after:tomorrow'

]);

}

Most of we use start date and end date validation as like bellow i written example:

Start Date and End Date Example:

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'start_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y',

'end_date' => 'date_format:m/d/Y|after:start_date'

]);

}

I hope it can help you...
