Step 2: Create DemoForm Component

In this step, we will create DemoForm.js component file and we will write code of form validation. so let's add code as bellow:

src/DemoForm.js

import React from 'react';

class DemoForm extends React.Component {

constructor() {

super();

this.state = {

input: {},

errors: {}

};

this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);

this.handleSubmit = this.handleSubmit.bind(this);

}

handleChange(event) {

let input = this.state.input;

input[event.target.name] = event.target.value;

this.setState({

input

});

}

handleSubmit(event) {

event.preventDefault();

if(this.validate()){

console.log(this.state);

let input = {};

input["name"] = "";

input["email"] = "";

input["comment"] = "";

this.setState({input:input});

alert('Demo Form is submited');

}

}

validate(){

let input = this.state.input;

let errors = {};

let isValid = true;

if (!input["name"]) {

isValid = false;

errors["name"] = "Please enter your name.";

}

if (!input["email"]) {

isValid = false;

errors["email"] = "Please enter your email Address.";

}

if (typeof input["email"] !== "undefined") {

var pattern = new RegExp(/^(("[\w-\s]+")|([\w-]+(?:\.[\w-]+)*)|("[\w-\s]+")([\w-]+(?:\.[\w-]+)*))(@((?:[\w-]+\.)*\w[\w-]{0,66})\.([a-z]{2,6}(?:\.[a-z]{2})?)$)|(@\[?((25[0-5]\.|2[0-4][0-9]\.|1[0-9]{2}\.|[0-9]{1,2}\.))((25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|1[0-9]{2}|[0-9]{1,2})\.){2}(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|1[0-9]{2}|[0-9]{1,2})\]?$)/i);

if (!pattern.test(input["email"])) {

isValid = false;

errors["email"] = "Please enter valid email address.";

}

}

if (!input["comment"]) {

isValid = false;

errors["comment"] = "Please enter your comment.";

}

this.setState({

errors: errors

});

return isValid;

}

render() {

return (

<div>

<h1>React Form Validation Example - ItSolutionStuff.com</h1>

<form onSubmit={this.handleSubmit}>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="name">Name:</label>

<input

type="text"

name="name"

value={this.state.input.name}

onChange={this.handleChange}

class="form-control"

placeholder="Enter name"

id="name" />

<div className="text-danger">{this.state.errors.name}</div>

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="email">Email Address:</label>

<input

type="text"

name="email"

value={this.state.input.email}

onChange={this.handleChange}

class="form-control"

placeholder="Enter email"

id="email" />

<div className="text-danger">{this.state.errors.email}</div>

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="comment">Comment:</label>

<textarea

name="comment"

value={this.state.input.comment}

onChange={this.handleChange}

placeholder="Enter comment"

class="form-control" />

<div className="text-danger">{this.state.errors.comment}</div>

</div>

<input type="submit" value="Submit" class="btn btn-success" />

</form>

</div>

);

}

}

export default DemoForm;

Step 3: Import Component

In this step, we will import DemoFormcomponent in index.js main file. so let's update index.js file as bellow:

Here, i used bootstrap with react. so, if you want to use bootstrap in your app too then follow this tutorial: Install Bootstrap 4 in React JS.

src/index.js

import React from 'react';

import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';

import * as serviceWorker from './serviceWorker';

import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css';

import DemoForm from './DemoForm';

ReactDOM.render(

<React.StrictMode>

<div className="container">

<DemoForm />

</div>

</React.StrictMode>,

document.getElementById('root')

);

serviceWorker.unregister();

Now we are ready to run our application, so let's run using bellow command:

npm start

Open bellow url:

http://localhost:3000

I hope it can help you...
