Step 1: Install React App

In our first step, we need to download react js fresh app using bellow command, if you didn't install yet then.

npx create-react-app my-app

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["username"] = "";

input["email"] = "";

input["password"] = "";

input["confirm_password"] = "";

this.setState({input:input});

alert('Demo Form is submitted');

}

}

validate(){

let input = this.state.input;

let errors = {};

let isValid = true;

if (!input["username"]) {

isValid = false;

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

}

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

const re = /^\S*$/;

if(input["username"].length < 6 || !re.test(input["username"])){

isValid = false;

errors["username"] = "Please enter valid username.";

}

}

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["password"]) {

isValid = false;

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

}

if (!input["confirm_password"]) {

isValid = false;

errors["confirm_password"] = "Please enter your confirm password.";

}

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

if(input["password"].length < 6){

isValid = false;

errors["password"] = "Please add at least 6 charachter.";

}

}

if (typeof input["password"] !== "undefined" && typeof input["confirm_password"] !== "undefined") {

if (input["password"] != input["confirm_password"]) {

isValid = false;

errors["password"] = "Passwords don't match.";

}

}

this.setState({

errors: errors

});

return isValid;

}

render() {

return (

<div>

<h1>React Username and Password Validation Example - ItSolutionStuff.com</h1>

<form onSubmit={this.handleSubmit}>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="username">Username:</label>

<input

type="text"

name="username"

value={this.state.input.username}

onChange={this.handleChange}

class="form-control"

placeholder="Enter username"

id="username" />

<div className="text-danger">{this.state.errors.username}</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="password">Password:</label>

<input

type="password"

name="password"

value={this.state.input.password}

onChange={this.handleChange}

class="form-control"

placeholder="Enter password"

id="password" />

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

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="password">Confirm Password:</label>

<input

type="password"

name="confirm_password"

value={this.state.input.confirm_password}

onChange={this.handleChange}

class="form-control"

placeholder="Enter confirm password"

id="confirm_password" />

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