Flutter Form Validation- Email validate, Password Confirm

Hi Guys, Welcome to Proto Coders Point, In this Flutter Tutorial we will check how to create forms in flutter with validation such as empty TextField, Email Validation, and password and confirm password validation in flutter

So let’s begin

Steps for form validation

  1. Create Form with a GlobalKey<FormState>.
  2. Add some TextFormField with validation that required.
  3. Create a button where you check for flutter form validation and submit it.

Step 1: Form Creation and assigning it a GlobalKey with FormState

First make use of Form Widget, This will work as a group & help you in managing validating multiple flutter forms textfield easily.
Then, after creating a form in flutter, provide it with GlobalKey<FormState>, It will help you  in allowing validation to form in proper order & very easily.

As show in below Snippet flutter code

final _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

@override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    // Build a Form widget using the _formKey created above.
    return Form(
      key: _formKey,    
      child: Column(
        children: <Widget>[
              // Add TextFormFields and RaisedButton here.
        ]
     )
    );
  }

Here i have created a globalkey as formState then in widget Tree, I have made use of Form Widget and assigned key: as _formKey, and form has child as Column so that we can create TextFormField for Flutter Form Validation.

Step 2: Adding TextFormField with Validation email, password confirm

TextFormField widget comes from Material design & it can also display validation error, whenever any user do not fullfill TextFormField Requirement,
This we can do by applying Validation Rules to particular flutter Textfield by providing validation properties rules to it.

If user enter any invalid input, then Validator function in flutter will detect it & return a appropriate error message at the bottom of TextField.

TextFormField(
  // The validator receives the text that the user has entered.
  validator: (value) {
    if (value.isEmpty) {
      return 'Please enter some text';
    }
    return null;
  },
);

If user submit the form without any data then validator will take care by showing proper text message to user, as shown in below screenshot.

Step 3: OnButton Pressed Check for Form Validation

So, Now as you have designed flutter form with TextFormField with validation, now simple create a button(should be inside the Form Widget tag), using which the user can submit the form filled with information in it.

When a user attempt to submit the form onPressed, we will check if flutetr form field by user is as per required validation, Then if the form is valid then send all the data info to database server to be saved, else if the form is invalidthen show a proper error message to the user under the flutter textfield where validation is not authorized.

RaisedButton(
  onPressed: () {
    // Validate returns true if the form is valid, otherwise false.
    if (_formKey.currentState.validate()) {
      // If the form is valid, display a snackbar. In the real world,
      // you'd often call a server or save the information in a database.

      Scaffold
          .of(context)
          .showSnackBar(SnackBar(content: Text('Processing Data')));
    }
  },
  child: Text('Submit'),
);

We are using GlobalKey formState under Form so, Form Validation will automatically detect where uses validation has failed.
